Telltale Games, the developer behind The Walking Dead game, have announced a new partnership with Marvel to develop a console and PC game in 2017.
The Marvel end of the announcement commented on the quality of Telltale’s work, “It takes a long time to find the right partner. We have one special game we’re excited about.” Their previous games include Tales From the Borderlands, Walking Dead, and Vertigo comic based game The Wolf Among Us.
Recently, Telltale announced an investment by Lionsgate towards developing a new transmedia experience that would utilize both video games and television.
Telltale’s blog only had the image and this statement:
Announced this evening in San Francisco, we’re excited to reveal an all-new partnership with the incredible team at Marvel Entertainment. We’ll be teaming up on the development of an upcoming Telltale game series project set to premiere in 2017!
We’ll update with more information as it comes in…
It looks like more details from the partnership will be forthcoming at E3. Marvel themselves only have the Marvel Heroes 2015 panel for gaming during this weekend’s C2E2.
Telltale Games have been a developer that has put story above all else. It was only a matter of time before the studio and the house of ideas would get together in the gaming world. The possibilities of the deal could even go beyond simply adapting a franchise. We don’t know what Marvel has in store for an event that far down the line. Could we be looking at an in continuity video game tie-in for an event. Indeed the possibilities are infinite.
