Telltale Games Signs Publishing Agreement With MS

By Michelle Balsan, 5 years ago
Telltale Games, the minds behind games such as http://www.trueachievements.com/game.aspx?gameid=1988 and the Wallace & Gromit titles, announced yesterday that they have struck a publishing licensor deal with Microsoft.

So what does this mean for you? Well, Telltale's fairly expansive catalog of episodic content will now have a much easier path to release on the Xbox 360, most likely as XBLA titles. Specific details are scarce, but I can't be the only one hoping that Back to the Future might be available on the Marketplace as a result, right?

Telltale co-founder and CEO, Dan Connors, shared the following statement about the new deal:

Adding console support to our acknowledged expertise in digital downloads is another positive step in our long-term growth strategy. We are pleased to expand the size of our potential audience by encompassing the Xbox 360 console consumer and bring our vision of video gaming to them.
Additional details on Telltale's product line for the 360 will be "announced shortly," so keep an eye out for more news on this deal in the near future!
