Telltale Games Is Being Relaunched
Just when you thought Telltale Games was dead and buried, it walks again. The studio behind popular titles like The Wolf Among Us, Batman, The Walking Dead and more is looking to make a comeback. LCG Entertainment has purchased the assets to the company and will be relaunching the brand under new management. The new studio heads have a background mainly in mobile titles, but are well versed in working with established IPs.
One of the biggest questions surrounding a return of Telltale would be what titles will be revived and which ones will be let go. LCG Entertainment has confirmed that some of the back catalog will be sold off and some of the rights the company maintained have reverted to their original owners. They did say they’ve got back catalog rights to The Wolf Among Us and Batman, as well as full rights to Puzzle Agent. In addition to reviving some of their older titles, they plan on starting some new IPs as well.
Telltale shut down last year in brutal fashion, with most of their staff being laid off unceremoniously. LCG Entertainment has said they intend to bring on some of the original staff in freelance positions, with the potential for that to become full time work. Personally, I’m just hoping we get more Back to the Future.
