Telltale Games is known for the critically acclaimed The Walking Dead episodic series among many. However, the developer has been using the same game engine for its games since The Walking Dead season 1 and report has come in that Telltale Games has finally decided to move on to a new game engine and leave the old one, Telltale Tool.
The report comes from Variety, who reveals that Telltale Games has decided to finally ditch its old game engine, Telltale Tool, in favor of widely popular Unity Engine.
Telltale Games has been using its game engine ever since the studio started developing games, which is even before the breakout hit The Walking Dead season 1.
Since then, Telltale has used the game engine to develop games such as Batman: The Telltale Series, The Wolf Among Us, Th Walking Dead Season 2, The Walking Dead: A New Frontier and more.
Suffice to say fans were getting tired of Telltale using the same engine for its games and it will be good for the studio to finally move away from it and switch to Unity engine for its future titles.
The upcoming Stranger Things project in partnership with Netflix will be the first title from Telltale series to be developed using the Unity Engine.
The studio is shifting to Unity for its projects (both detailed by Variety’s source and referenced in job listings), with the final season of “The Walking Dead” the last to premiere on the old engine. “Stranger Things” is slated to be the first Unity engine project
According to Variety, the upcoming The Walking Dead: The Final Season will be the last game developed by Telltale that will run on the old game engine.
