During the VGX award ceremony this past weekend, Telltale announced that they were currently developing games based in both the Borderlands and the Game of Thrones universes in addition to The Wolf Among Us and the second season of The Walking Dead.
Telltale exceeded all expectations by announcing not one, but two new franchises that both have immense promise in a similar game format as the immensely popular The Walking Dead adaptation the developer released last year. Indeed, many were not expecting anything at all given the recent release of the first episode of The Wolf Among Us, a Telltale series based on the Fables graphic novels and season two of The Walking Dead dropping this month.
Both Tales from the Borderlands: A Telltale Series and Game of Thrones: A Telltale Games Series appear to be developed along with the content creators in both cases. Gearbox Software will provide input on the Borderlands title, while HBO will have some say in the Game of Thrones game. Currently, both series are slated for a 2014 release alongside The Wolf Among Us and The Walking Dead.below you can view the announcement trailers and get excite for what the future may bring.
We can only guess that Telltale is keeping so many plates spinning in order to distract fans from the one or two gaps between episode releases, which plagued the initial stages of their episodic gaming model. What do you guys think? Is Telltale trying to do too much too soon?
