It seems that the story of Telltale Games, the company behind The Walking Dead games and the Batman titles, isn’t quite as finished as we first thought, as the company looks set to return under brand new management.
The company closed after laying off all of it’s employees earlier this year, leaving the last episode of The Walking Dead series in some doubt. It seems now that a holding company named LCG entertainment has bought up the rights to the Telltale Games name and quite a few licensed properties.
It will be a brand new studio, though, with none of the old staff necessarily expected to return, it will simply be operating under the Telltale brand and working on former Telltale IPs. The new studio will be based in Malibu, California.
The game rights that have been picked up include The Wolf among Us and Batman, both pretty big properties, with other in-house IP’s such as Puzzle Agent also being covered by the purchase. The company have stated they’ll be “staying small” for the first six months as they bed in, but hopefully this will see some Telltale games return to digital stores.
