The folks over at Telltale Games are on top of the world right now, after winning several GOTYawards for it’s episodic take on The Walking Dead, the future is looking brighter than ever for the adventure game centric studio.
There’s certainly plenty of excitement buzzing around the net, as gamers speculate about which franchises Telltale could possibly give the point and click treatment to next.
Well, we still don’t have any answers, but Telltale’s CEO Dan Connors said in a recent interview with Red Bull U.K.
that the studio is looking to adapt a major film or gaming franchise to continue building the momentum it received from The Walking Dead
“Coming from LucasArts, we always felt we could do a great Star Wars story game. We also love the idea of building out a deeper story to a great game franchise — something like Half Life Stories or Halo Stories.”
Senior vice president of publishing Steve Allison echoed this sentiment in a statement sent to GamesBeat’s Jeffrey Grubb
. However, it should be said that while Allison confirmed the studios desire to adapt a major franchise, he said (in an effort to prevent inaccurate rumors from spreading) a Halo
, or Star Wars
(as cool as they would be) Telltale game will probably never happen.
“[Dan Connors was] speaking more to our goal of wanting to take on a major gaming franchise someday. [We want] to build a narrative game series that supports another franchise — as we passionately believe [our game] would not compete with or cannibalize [Halo 4 or the next Half-Life.]
“Will we do this? Yes, we believe we will some time very soon. But the franchises mentioned are totally speculative and used only as an example to frame the idea.”
What big franchises would you like to see adapted into a Telltale game g1s? I’m not sure myself. I haven’t really thought about it all that much. I’m too busy eagerly waiting for The Walking Dead Season 2 details.
Perhaps I’ll get back to you on that. Hmmmm.
