The Walking Dead is big, but Telltale Games wants even bigger.
Telltale Games' CEO, Dan Connors, has been overwhelmed by the success of The Walking Dead, but is enthusiastic about what the future holds for the studio. In terms of aspirations, Connors would like to translate the great storytelling of The Walking Dead over to even larger IPs. He told Redbull UK the following during an interview:
Coming from LucasArts, we always felt we could do a great Star Wars story game. We also love the idea of building out a deeper story to a great game franchise—something like Half-Life stories or Halo stories.
There are so many possibilities, and Telltale Games can do for some of the biggest franchises in television and film what Rocksteady Studios did for Batman. However, for now the studio is focused on a second season of The Walking Dead which may even incorporate saves from the previous season.
Right now we are just starting to form the concept for season two. This all remains to be seen but we are definitely figuring out how to carry the saves over.
