After having worked on titles based around series far and wide involving major franchises like The Walking DeadGame of Thrones, and more, Telltale Games has given a new look into what lies ahead for the studio outside of its current projects, and it looks like things are about to get strange.

Developer Telltale Games confirmed during E3 2018 that the studio is currently at work on a few projects in conjunction with Netflix, with the first being a new episodic game series based around Stranger Things, the network’s acclaimed sci-fi drama series that first debuted in 2016, and most recently released its second season last fall.

Few details about the game itself — such as the story and characters/cast members involved — have been revealed by Telltale at this stage, but the studio confirmed that the game will be coming “to consoles and computers at a later date.”

In addition, Telltale also confirmed that the studio will be bringing a five-episode “interactive” version of Minecraft: Story Mode to Netflix this fall. Specifically, in a report from TechRadar, the adaptation of the series will be “an extension of our other interactive stories we have on our service,” with the title being compared to programs like Stretch Armstrong: The Breakout and Puss in Book: Trapped in an Epic Tale, and commands in the game will be input through more TV-centric devices like a standard remote control.

In regard to both projects, Telltale Games stated that “our partnership with Netflix is something we’re incredibly proud of,” and while the studio has not released any other details regarding its collaboration with Netflix, the studio said it will “reveal details on these projects later in the year.”
