The news was announced during The Game Awards ceremony.
Telltale Games have confirmed that they will be producing a series featuring the iconic DC Comics character.
While the launch trailer doesn’t give any clues about the setting or the storyline, the developer did hint that players will be able to play as Bruce Wayne in the game.
Telltale Co-Founder and CEO Kevin Bruner said on the company’s website “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.
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 game is expected to launch on consoles, PC, Mac and hand-held devices in 2016. Watch the launch trailer below.
