Telltale Games making a Bruce Wayne-focused Batman game

During The Game Awards 2015, Telltale Games revealed that it’s working on a new episodic Batman video game. The as yet untitled project will be launching sometime in 2016.

The initial video teaser is sparse on details, but does contain voiceovers of people talking about Bruce Wayne and his alter-ego, Batman. The Batman symbol used at the end of the teaser is similar to that of DC Comics title The Dark Knight Returns, though continuity and timeline details are not stated.

Posting on the Telltale Games blog, co-founder and CEO of the company Kevin Bruner called it an honour to include Batman in its story lineup.

At Telltale, we’ve been honored to bring our unique approach to interactive storytelling to some of the biggest entertainment franchises in the world, and we’re excited to announce that we’ll soon be exploring what it means to be Batman in an all-new series starting next year […] This iteration of Batman will give fans a first-hand opportunity to dive deeper into the complex life and mind of Bruce Wayne, the duality of his own identity, and the struggle of responsibility in saving a city overcome with corruption and villainy.

David Haddad, president of Warner Brothers, noted that the company looks “forward to working with the [Telltale] team as they deliver a new interactive way for fans and gamers to experience the rich narrative world of Batman.”

The game will be releasing on PC, Mac, consoles, and mobile devices, though platform-specific details are yet to be release.

The studio is no stranger to licenced games. To date, Telltale Games has released products based around Borderlands, Minecraft, The Walking Dead, Jurassic Park, and more.
