Telltale Games Hints at Upcoming Original IP Title, Calls New Project “Most Ambitious Thing the Company Has Ever Done”

on February 11, 2015 11:26 AM

Coming off a highly successful 2014 and still running with two ongoing series in 2015, Telltale Games has had quite the slate of projects to keep busy with between Tales from the BorderlandsGame of Thrones, an upcoming Minecraft episodic title, and a mysterious new IP that may be something key to look forward to.

Speaking in an interview with GamesInsdustry, Telltale Games CEO Kevin Bruner detailed many of the accomplishments that Telltale has achieved within the last few years, alongside giving grief glimpses at what to expect from the company’s upcoming new IP, a project that still has no name, gameplay details, or any other announcements, but seems to be promising some great things in store.

In the interview, Bruner gave a few more details on what to expect from the company’s new IP, and though he gave pause to reveal its name or what exactly he is, Bruner did mention it will be a radical change of pace for Telltale and that it is “the perfect thing for us.” Bruner gave more details in the interview below:

“Well, it’s called… No, I can’t [laughs]. I’ll say we’ve spent a lot of time experimenting over the last decade with how powerful a storytelling tool interactive can be and when we thought about building something from the ground up that gave us absolutely everything we could dream of as storytelling tools. The right kind of story, the right kind of setting, the right kind of people involved, everything.

It kind of rose organically and doing your first original IP is a pretty big deal for any company so it’s something we’re pouring a lot of love into. It’s probably the most ambitious thing the company has ever done but we feel like we’re ready for it. We’re very excited to talk about it, but we can’t say much more right now. But it is the perfect thing for us.”

Telltale Games is currently releasing episodes of both Tales from the Borderlands and Game of Thrones, with a new episodic game based on Minecraft to also release in 2015, and a third season of its highly-successful The Walking Dead.
