Creator of “The Wolf Among Us”, “The Walking Dead” and numerous other cult hits will now continue to press ahead with plans to release new content.


TellTale fans rejoice as the latest news coming out of the corporation is very good news, having secured the series a round of funding from Hiro Capital and Skybound Entertainment.

What this means going forwards is that the highly anticipated Wolf Among Us 2 and The Expanse can now proceed into further development and release (scheduled for this summer), without jeopardizing TellTale’s financial position as a result of completing the development of said titles. In the case of The Wolf Amongst Us 2, its been a common theme of delay, after delay. Fans will now be hoping that Bigby and co can finally see the light of day.

(Onto some more regarding the investment).

This investment pairs Telltale, a pioneer in the episodic narrative adventure genre, with well-known game industry pioneer Ian Livingstone knighted last year for his services to the online games industry, Livingstone is best known as the co-founder of the twenty million-selling Fighting Fantasy series of narrative role-playing books and for co-founding two billion-dollar game companies, Games Workshop & Eidos Interactive. Together with the Hiro Capital team, he has co-founded or backed more than $9 billion in leading games, sports, and technology companies.

Ian Livingstone (co-founding partner) of Hiro Capital remarked “The guiding tenets of great storytelling and fun gameplay have always been at the heart of everything I’ve built or invested in over the past fifty years. I’m delighted to be backing the new Telltale and their vision to build the next generation of narrative adventure games”

Furthermore, CEO of TellTale Jamie Ottilie had his say on the positive turn of events by saying “We are honored to have the confidence of Hiro Capital, a fund that is committed to the future of the games industry, and that of our colleagues at Skybound Entertainment. It’s both a pleasure and a natural fit to be affiliated with companies that share our commitment to narrative games and transmedia entertainment. Together with our outstanding partners at Deck Nine, we are eager to show our fans how we have honored the Telltale legacy and evolved the episodic narrative genre for which the company is best known. These investments will help us realize that vision.”

Lastly, Skybound Entertainments David Alpert (CEO) personally commented “Telltale and Skybound have a long and incredibly successful history together that forever changed the way stories are told in video games. It has been just over 10 years, hundreds of millions of dollars, and over 100 Game of the Year awards since Telltale released the acclaimed first title in The Walking Dead series. We continue to believe in the power of narrative gaming and this investment will allow us to support Telltale in telling even more amazing stories”.
