Telltale Games receives 'significant investment' from Lionsgate

Get ready to play more Telltale Games and possibly even watch shows based on their original IPs thanks to Lionsgates "significant investment."

4

Everyone’s favorite independent games developer, Telltale Games, has just received a “significant investment” from Lionsgate. As part of the investment, Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer will join the Telltale Board of Directors.

Lionsgate’s investment will be used as a way to continue extending the company’s films and television brands into the game space. The partnership will also bring Lionsgate's expertise in creating and marketing premium content within Telltale’s approach to gaming as well as co-developing existing and original IP into both episodic games and television.

This is certainly an interesting development as Telltale Games has already stood out in the gaming industry for its storytelling in its games. To see a major company like Lionsgate invest in it to help it continue to stand out is a pretty big deal, and one I am curious to see what exactly both companies have planned for the future of entertainment.

      Cue Telltale-produced adventure games for The Hunger Games, Twilight, and probably Divergent. The Hunger Games world can be interesting, so that could be fun.

      Telltale deserves it. I love their stuff.

      They've had a few hiccups over the years, but generally, they are the ones keeping the mainstream adventure game ship alive as well as a REAL episodic games business model. I'm impressed with them, to be honest!

      There are definitely a ton of adventure games out there, but Telltale's are the most high quality in my opinion.
