Telltale Games has a knack for narrative-focused games.
The company is known for its excellent Walking Dead series in addition to titles like The Wolf Among Us and Game of Thrones.
Now the company is setting its sight on the Dark Knight with a series based on The Dark Knight.
Little is known beyond the teaser trailer, which echoes the moody pages of the graphic novels, except that it will be an episodic series (as is the case with other Telltale titles) and it’ll debut next year for PC, Mac, home consoles, and mobile.
Here’s how Telltale CEO Kevin Bruner describes it (via press release):
“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.”
The developer is also making a Marvel game, but that’s reportedly not coming until 2017.
