Telltale And Marvel To Team Up For Game Series In 2017

With all of the buzz surrounding Avengers: Age of Ultron right now, it makes sense that Telltale would use this opportunity to announce their partnership with the comic book giant.

To say that details are slim would be an understatement, especially as the only solid information we have is that the game series will premiere sometime in 2017. The studio have not said which area of the Marvel universe they are going to explore, whether they will use existing characters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe or focus on a character from the comics who hasn’t had much time in the spotlight yet remains to be seen.

Telltale are no slouches at the moment though as they are currently working on Tales From the Borderlands and Game of Thrones. They have also confirmed a second season of The Wolf Among Us and a third season of The Walking Dead, as well as these games they have announced Minecraft: Story Mode and they have also recently signed a deal with Lionsgate to create a new IP which will combine a game with a scripted TV series, much like the upcoming Quantum Break. All of these projects possibly makes them one of the hardest working studios around at the moment.

  1. While it might seem like a nice idea, and I’m sure they can do something good with Marvel, it’s also very worrying news.

    It means they’ll have 7 games in development at the same time, in a fairly small company? How long are we going to have to wait between episodes now? 4 months between episodes 1 and 2 of Tales From the Borderlands, so that’ll be finished in a year or so.

    They’re doing too much, and episodes are taking far too long to appear.

    • Agreed. I’d say there shouldn’t be more than a month between episodes. Do more of the work before you start releasing, Telltale. Please!

  2. Yet another entry in the Telltale Template series of games.

  3. I’ve got a lot of respect for them given the amount of ambition they clearly have. However, I do agree that they have a hell of a lot on their plate and I do worry that it may affect their work in the long run. The one thing they really need to sort is the scheduling, they should look at Life is Strange as a good example of how it should be done really. 6 – 8 weeks is a decent gap between episodes.

  4. Ok, this is cool, but as others have mentioned, Telltale have A LOT on their plate right now. They’ve got 2 games semi-developed, TWD3 is supposed to be out this year, then TWAU2 is in the works, plus now the 2 deals with Legendary and Marvel (The latter could take Telltale to the next level, admittedly).

    I just hope that quality can be maintained.

    Also, I hope they ditch the spoon fed episodic model and release all the episodes at once, which is a growing trend with TV i.e. Netflix. I would actually buy it straight away then and not pick it up less than half price in the sales that they have 3/4 times a year.
