Lionsgate Invests in Telltale Games for Game/TV Hybrid Project

By   /   Feb 24, 2015

Lionsgate Entertainment has announced a financial investment in Telltale Games, that will see the developer producing episodic TV/game “Super Shows.”

Telltale Games is no stranger when it comes to episodic story telling. In this case though, the developer will be tying its game development with television production. According to the studio’s CEO Kevin Bruner, each episode of a “Super Show” will be released across consoles, PC and mobile devices in the form of a scripted TV-style portion, as well as an interactive section.

The intention is so that “you can consume the interactive portion or watch the scripted portion in any order you’d like.”

The new partnership between Lionsgate and Telltale also sees to Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer and newly-appointed Unity CEO John Riccitiello join Telltale’s board of directors.

“Our partnership with [Telltale boss] Kevin Bruner and his team at Telltale continues to accelerate our momentum in the game space,” Lionsgate exec Peter Levin stated.

The announcement of the partnership between Lionsgate and Telltale so far includes no new game projects. This could mean that the deal is banking on Telltale to further promote its own video game franchises.

Telltale is expected to release a third season of The Walking Dead later this year, as well as a new story-based Minecraft spin-off.
