It was quite a surprise when Telltale Games revealed that they were working on a Batman game. A teaser trailer was shown during The Game Awards 2015 that revealed the game to be launching in 2016.
Keven Burner, Co-Founder and CEO of Telltale Games said the following on the official Telltale blog:
At Telltale, we’ve been honored to bring our unique approach to interactive storytelling to some of the biggest entertainment franchises in the world, and we’re excited to announce that we’ll soon be exploring what it means to be Batman in an all-new series starting next year. This iteration of Batman will give fans a first-hand opportunity to dive deeper into the complex life and mind of Bruce Wayne, the duality of his own identity, and the struggle of responsibility in saving a city overcome with corruption and villainy.
David Haddad, President, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment said the following about working with Telltale:
Telltale has an established track record of creating award-winning content for some of the best properties in the world. We look forward to working with the team as they deliver a new interactive way for fans and gamers to experience the rich narrative world of Batman.
