Stranger Things is one of the most popular TV series that Netflix has provided fans with up until now. Latest reports indicate that the platform is bringing a Telltale Stranger Things game, in collaboration with Telltale Games.
The news comes from TechRadar where a Netflix representative revealed that a Stranger Things project in collaboration with Telltale Games is happening, with no release date or further information though.
The news comes after the announcement that a streamable version of Minecraft: Story Mode is coming to Netflix. Yeah, you heard right. You’ll be able to play the game with any kind of controller you use for your monitor or TV through the Netflix platform.
Netflix revealed the existence of Telltale Stranger Things, after the positive feedback on Minecraft: Story mode streaming on the platform:
“We’re delighted by the response we’re seeing to the idea of Minecraft: Story Mode coming to Netflix in the fall as an interactive adventure, and separately, we’re thrilled to confirm that Telltale is developing a game based on Stranger Things that we’ll publish to consoles and computers at a later date.
Our partnership with Netflix is something we’re incredibly proud of, and while we don’t have anything more to share right now, we’re excited to reveal details on these projects later in the year.”
The Telltale Stranger Things project was supposed to launch alongside Season 2 of the hit Netflix show but was postponed, according to TechRadar’s source. Telltale’s licensing acquisition appears similar to the one with HBO back when it developed HBO’s Game of Thrones.
However, Netflix pointed out that they won’t be bringing any more original Telltale games to their platform. The release of individual Netflix-Telltale short games seems like a good plan for the time being. Why mix it up with huge past games that will only make the service more crowded and slow?
