Telltale Games has confirmed that it is working on a new original IP. The news was revealed alongside an announcement that president and co-founder Kevin Pruner would be transitioning into a new role at the studio as CEO. Former CEO and co-founder Dan Connors will remain with Telltale Games as an executive advisor.
No mention of a release date or platforms for the new IP was made. The studio is working on several other games at the moment, including the third season of The Walking Dead series, Minecraft: Story Mode, Tales from the Borderlands and the Game of Thrones series.
Last year marked ten years since Telltale Games was founded. The studio’s most recent release, Game of Thrones: Episode One – Iron from Ice, was well-received in GameSpot’s review, praised for its depiction of characters from the Game of Thrones universe and anxiety-inducing game-play.
A lot has been said recently of Telltale potentially over extending itself, with all the plates it has spinning, and that they should take time out to improve their game engine. I personally disagree. I have no interest in downloading these games an episode at a time and, much like I do T’V shows, prefer to binge on the whole thing once I can get my hands on it.
Here’s a few ideas I would like to see from them
1. Doctor Who
2. Stephen King’s The Dark Tower (Could be a long one..)
4. Neil Gaiman’s American Gods
5. Son’s Of Anarchy
That’s what I would like to see. If you have any more list them in the comments below or tweet me @europaoutlaw
