Telltale announces summer 2016 release windows for Batman, The Walking Dead

Interested in gritty adventure stories? Telltale's got you covered for the rest of the year.


Job Stauffer, Telltale Games' director of creative communication, announced release windows for the company's upcoming Batman and The Walking Dead: Season Three episodic adventures.

"Batman, the Telltale Series will premiere this summer," he tweeted. A third season of The Walking Dead will follow later this fall.

Not much is known about either property, and Telltale's not ready to divulge too many story-related details just yet. We do know that Telltale hopes The Walking Dead: Season Three will appeal to new players who haven't played the first and/or second seasons yet, implying that new characters may take center stage, joined by a fan-favorite.

Meanwhile, Telltale's Batman adventure is poised to let fans do more than beat up criminals and supervillains as Batman: play as Bruce Wayne. Players will be asked at certain junctures whether they want to handle a situation as Bruce or his alter ego, decisions that hold enormous potential for how storylines could play out.

Stauffer ended his tweet by reminding everyone that E3 begins next week, inferring that more details will be made clear once the annual trade show kicks off.

      Batman: The Walking Dead.

      That would be something.

      I am going to assume The Wolf Among Us will never get a Season 2

        Yeah, I think that's probably out if only because of the massively larger licenses they're pulling now. Even if it did well, it couldn't compete with the income from Batman, Marvel, Minecraft, or even The Walking Dead.

        Sad though, I would have loved to revisit Fables.

          Me too. I don't really care for this Batman game (right now at least, we'll see how I feel when I get a better look at it) but I am really interested in the Marvel game. Mostly because like the only Marvel games we really have right now are Marvel Heroes (which is great, way better than it should be for a F2P ARPG haha), some Disney Infinity stuff :( and then a bunch of mobile games. Where as with Batman, we have had a slew of pretty good games starring the Dark Knight. It will just be interesting to see what they do with the Marvel license!

            Also honestly I haven't really liked a TTG Adventure game since Wolf Among Us. And really, after playing Life Is Strange, I don't think I'd want to go back if its just going to be ANOTHER TTG game with a different skin over it (which is kinda how I feel about most of their games). Borderlands seemed to add some new things but eh, I like Borderlands as a shoot things until they die game, not for the story.

              The Wolf Among Us had a very interesting premise and had an even better story. I'd really like them to revisit TWAU since Season 2 of TWD was sub-par. Sigh, company has got to make money though.
