Telltale Games Will No Longer Develop Games Episodically

Telltale Games are re-assessing their approach to the release model of their games as well.

Following a purchase of their assets earlier this year, Telltale Games were revived under new ownership and leadership. But much is changing at the studio, including the personnel, which also means that the way they approach development – and perhaps the release models – of their games is also being reviewed.

Recently, while speaking in an interview with GameDaily.biz, Telltale CEO Jamie Ottilie said that though the stories of their future games will follow an episodic structure, the games themselves will be developed in their entirety together, rather than on an episode-by-episode basis. As such, even if they are released episodically, the entire game will have already finished development when the first episode releases.

“We are creating the stories episodically, but how they will be released is still to be determined,” said Ottilie. “I think the important distinction here is that we will no longer be developing episodically. If we do release the game in episodes, all of them will be ready before the first one hits the store.”

Telltale Games recently re-announced The Wolf Among Us 2for which they’ve brought back several creative leads from the first project. That said, don’t expect the game to be out anytime soon- apparently, Telltale restarted development from scratch, and it’s been confirmed that the game won’t be releasing in 2020.
