Although Batman: Arkham Knight is the last game starring the caped crusader from long time studio Rocksteady, it won't be the last Batman game ever. Fresh from its success with Tales from the Borderlands, Game of Thrones, and The Wolf Among Us, adventure game studio Telltale will be making a similar title with DC Comic's iconic character.
The game was revealed at The Game Awards 2015 in Los Angeles. A full announcement trailer will hit the Internet this week.
"At Telltale, we've been honoured 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," said Kevin Bruner, Co-Founder and CEO of Telltale Games. "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."
"Telltale has an established track record of creating award-winning content for some of the best properties in the world," said David Haddad, President, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. "We look forward to working with the team as they deliver a new interactive way for fans and gamers to experience the rich narrative world of Batman."
For now, no specific platforms have been mentioned. Considering that Nintendo's next console, the NX is expected in 2016, which is in the same time frame the game will be available, we won't be surprised if it shows up on the Android, iOS, PC, PS4, and Xbox One along with the NX.
