Batman Series to Update Telltale’s Game Engine

Telltale Games confirmed that they will be updating their game engine for future titles, with their upcoming Batman game series to be the first to support it.

During a SXSW panel where Telltale Games revealed details on their Batman series, Kevin Bruner, Telltale Games co-founder, spoke about the company upgrading their game engine for future titles. Bruner stated the following:

“We’ve got a whole lot of new technology that’s going in that you’ll start to see in Batman, and Telltale games going forward […] We have a bunch of new engineers that have been working on rendering technology – non-photorealistic rendering technology […] but it’s really cool, very much upgraded from the kinds of things that you’ve seen from Telltale in the past […] It’s still a Telltale game, so it’ll be evolved from what you’ve seen before, but I think a more significant step than you’ve seen from any of our products in the past.”

Telltale Games is currently releasing episodes for Minecraft: Story Mode and The Walking Dead: Michonne, with the Batman series starting at some point this summer.

    It’s about time. They really need to up the visual effects if they want to recapture the atmosphere of Gotham. I’m curious to see how this game turns out. I’m a huge Batman fan, but I think I’ll wait for all the episodes to come out.

      I’m pretty excited about it too. The last time I was this excited for a Telltale series was Back to the Future!
