Telltale Games, the developers of games set in such universes as The Walking Dead, Borderlands, Game of Thrones and the diary under my bed (*editor’s note: Not true and why do you still have a diary?), are developing a console game set in the Marvel universe to release in 2017. Marvel announced the partnership at an event held today in San Francisco. Unfortunately, there are no further concrete details at this point, only Marvel Games creative director Bill Roseman assuring us that the game will strive for authenticity.
Telltale Games are the premier development studio when it comes to licensed properties, and I am genuinely excited about what they could do in the Marvel universe. Here’s to hoping that by 2017 their game engine has been updated and isn’t being held together scotch tape like the current one!
