Although Telltale Games is gone, their creations remain.
LCG Entertainment acquired the remnants of Telltale in August. Now, they filed The Telltale Batman Shadows Edition at the Australian Classification Board, and if we had to guess, it’s probably going to contain Batman: The Telltale Series, and Batman: The Enemy Within, meaning Telltale’s two Batman seasons might be put together into one package, possibly in 2020 (mere guessing here).
In the Autumn, we already saw something similar, when The Walking Dead: The Telltale Definitive Series contained the four seasons, 400 Days between seasons 1 and 2, and the Michionne mini-series. It was released by Skybound, the company of The Walking Dead’s creator Robert Kirkman. (As they took over finishing up The Walking Dead, it was bound to happen that they’ll take the chance to release everything in one collection.)
LCG Entertainment is run by a few gaming industry veterans, including a few former Telltale members. Back in August, they said that they will re-release a few games from Telltale’s catalogue, plus they will make new instalments of the studio’s „best-selling brands.” „We’re going to stay small over the next six months and we will work for more of a distributed development pipeline than Telltale was known for. We’ll focus on tools, technology and design in-house. Some things like animation and motion capture will be done with the right partnerships externally. We need to look at how people like to entertain themselves. I like the idea of binge-watching,” LCG’s Jamie Ottilie told Polygon in August.
So they’ll probably test the waters with a re-release first to see if people are interested. And then, they might start a third season if everything goes according to plan. We’ll see shortly what happens.
