Telltale Games reinstated


Recommended Posts


Ottilie said that he bought the rights to Telltale because he believes in the future of adventure games.

“This is a viable business that went away due to market conditions and some scale choices [Telltale’s previous management] made,” he said. “I like games that tell stories and I think our industry should have a company that specializes in narrative-driven games.”

Telltale’s rights were purchased from a company that had been assigned by creditors of the old company. According to Ottilie, negotiations began six months ago. “It was incredibly complex,” he said. The purchase price has not been announced.

Publisher Athlon Games is a partner in the deal, and will handle storefront operations and distribution. Financial backers include various game industry figures, including Chris Kingsley (Rebellion), Lyle Hall (Heavy Iron Studios), and Tobias Sjögren (formerly of Starbreeze).
