Soon after, Stauffer posted a follow-up as a tip for any media attending E3, which teased Batman – The Telltale Series’ appearance at the show next week.
Plot details for the game are scarce, but the studio has revealed the game will be set in modern times, telling an original narrative that won’t be taken from any previous iteration of the character. The story will focus solely on Batman/Bruce Wayne and not the Bat-family. Additionally, “the player’s actions will help shape the Gotham that Bruce deals with during the day, as well as the criminals that Batman faces at night,” says a post on the developer’s blog. The blog post also noted the game will be rated ‘M’ for Mature, a second for a Batman game, and will be formed by a cinematic approach akin to that of an R-rated film.
