The beloved studio that’s been best known for its work on Walking Dead episodic games is once again in business! LCG entertainment, a holdings company located in the heart of Los Angeles, has acquired many of the studio’s key assets, including trademarks, technology, and numerous intellectual properties. However, it’s a bit too early for the fans to rejoice as what’s currently left of the Studio quite differs from what it once was.
Looking on the bright side, the official press release announced that some of the key staff members from the original Telltale crew were contacted to be a part of the future projects, and some of Telltale’s best-selling titles will be taken from the back catalog and re-released with care and scrupulosity. Athlon Games (one of the key partners to Telltale’s publishing) played a huge part in ensuring the smooth purchase process and will continue their works for marketing and publishing with the new studio.
Telltale Game studio has been closed since last year’s October, despite having numerous awards and being regarded by many as the threshold for storytelling and narrative-based gameplay. The new CEO of the studio, Jamie Ottilie completely agrees with the fan majority and states:
“All of us were big fans of the games Telltale created, as we strongly believe in games as a storytelling medium and nobody did it better…We believe there is still so much life to the brand and its franchises, and we look forward to building upon the company’s storytelling legacy.”
While the new chief revenue officer, Brian Waddle also adds, “There is still a huge fanbase of Telltale players and that’s one of the main reasons we decided to make this investment. It’s hard to see your favorite games disappear or not get the sequels they deserve, so we thank everyone for their patience and support. We’ve got some exciting things to share soon. We’ll try not to keep them waiting too long, but we think fans will be pleased.”
We are very happy about the revitalization of the company that has brought some truly magnificent stories, and we sincerely wish only the best of luck for the company in their awaiting ventures.
