At E3 2016, Telltale Games hosted an event showing off a first look into their Telltale-themed version of Gotham City, for Batman-The Telltale Series. However, we still didn’t know when the game would eventually be playable.
In a Press Release sent today, Warner Bros. Interactive announced that their episodic Batman game will start popping up on consoles and PC/Mac in August. Unfortunately, we don’t know when exactly but it’s still better than nothing. Plus, that’s less than a month away!
For those of us who like to binge watch/play, WB also revealed that the complete 5 episode collection will be available, in stores, on September 13, 2016! Doing the math, that date does make us think that the first episode could be released pretty early in the month of August.
We’ll find out soon, though!
