Over the last few years, Telltale Games has adapted several franchises for their unique style of gaming from Game of Thrones to The Walking Dead to the most recent franchise, DC’s Batman. The next game getting the Telltale Treatment will be none other than DC’s rival, Marvel and their Guardians of the Galaxy!

We are always honored to be working with the best creative partners and storytellers in entertainment, and working with Marvel on this series leaves us excited to share what we’ve been developing when it premieres in 2017.”
“With story at the core of everything that Marvel creates, who better to team with than master storytellers Telltale Games,” said Jay Ong, Senior Vice President, Games & Innovation, Marvel Entertainment. “Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series fully showcases Marvel and Telltale’s rich legacy of storytelling, and fans will find themselves immersed in an original, character-driven narrative.
