Telltale Games Announce New Titles Will Come to Xbox 360
After several Telltale Games releases such as Tales of Monkey Island and Back to the Future skipped over Xbox LIVE arcade, CEO Dan Connors has now revealed that the company are once again working on releasing titles on the Microsoft console. Past titles have enjoyed iOS, PC, PlayStation 3 and/or WiiWare releases, but a Telltale game hasn’t been released on Xbox 360 since 2009’s Wallace & Gromit’s Grand Adventures. On their Twitter feed it was declared: “We’re very excited to announce that we are officially publishing games for the XBox 360! We will still be coming to other platforms as well.” Another Tweet stated that there were “No announcements on what’s coming to the Xbox 360 from us yet but we have some exciting stuff in store! Stay tuned!”
Shortly afterwards however, Telltale also announced that Jurassic Park: The Game will be coming to Xbox 360 this Autumn as a full boxed retail release. The game was recently delayed until the third quarter of the year, but is it still expected to be released in episodic form on other platforms, such as PC and Mac. The Xbox 360 version will be on disc, with all episodes gathered together, and will receive a simultaneous release alongside its PlayStation 3 counterpart. It has not yet been confirmed whether the PlayStation 3 release will also be disc-based or not. Past Telltale games have been released as episodes on PS3, so this remains up in the air.
Speaking of episodic gaming, Telltale can also confirm that the fourth episode of the Back to the Future series, entitled Double Visions, is now available for download on PC and Mac. The PlayStation 3 version is expected later as the third episode is only due for PlayStation Network release this week. And with the problems currently present on PSN, it may be sometime before PlayStation users can catch up with their PC and Mac counterparts.
Jurassic Park is due to be released Autumn 2011 on PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3. Back to the Future: Double Visions is out now on PC and Mac. A PlayStation 3 version is in the works.
