Telltale Games is now revived, at least in name, following its sudden shuttering last year. Holding company LGC Entertainment has acquired the studio's "key assets, trademarks, technology, and select intellectual properties", and looks to continue its legacy.
However, the new leadership seems to be aware of the issues that plagued Telltale Games and will be taking things much slower. More specifically, they'll be tackling games one at a time.
Telltale Games Revived
"We are going to to (sic) build at a slower pace than what was being done at the end of Telltale. My intention is to announce one game and get it fully into production. When that's well on its way to completion, we'll worry about what we're doing after that game.", LCG Entertainment chief executive Jamie Ottilie told Forbes.
"Most of what needs to be avoided is about cost control and being realistic about what you can spend on a Telltale-style game, and hitting your quality marks inside of that box — and bringing it out on time and on schedule for your players.", he continued.
This new incarnation of Telltale Games won't have the scale of the previous studio, either, Otille not expecting "more than 25 people in the first year". As far as IP goes, LCG Entertainment has acquired The Wolf Among Us, Puzzle Agent 1 and 2, the Batman titles, RGX and "another older title".
A new game announcement is expected by the end of the year.
