New Back to the Future and Jurassic Park Video Games On The Way
Telltale Games announced a multi-year, two-title video game development deal with Universal Partnerships & Licensing. Telltale Games has secured the rights to create video games based on two of Universal Picturesâ€™ most popular intellectual properties, Back to the Future and Jurassic Park. The first game released under the agreement will be a Telltale Games â€œseasonâ€ based on the successful Back to the Future series of films. Look for the first video game based â€œseasonâ€ of Back to the Future from Telltale this winter, followed shortly by Jurassic Park.
â€œOur partnership with Universal is an exciting next step in our continued growth as a mass-market games publisher and developer,â€ said Dan Connors, CEO of Telltale Games. â€œWe are all huge fans of both of these franchises. For Back to the Future and Jurassic Park, we will leverage Telltaleâ€™s expertise in story-telling and game design to deliver on the unique elements of each series, with our goal being to create compelling cinematic adventures paying homage to each franchise.â€
Jurassic Park and Back to the Future are two of the most successful film trilogies ever, grossing over $3 billion dollars at the box office collectively.
â€œTelltale Games has succeeded in establishing a unique combination of digital and physical distribution models, and their reputation for quality production is well earned,â€ said Bill Kispert, Vice President and General Manger, Digital Platforms, Universal Partnerships & Licensing. â€œTelltaleâ€™s episodic story-telling is an ideal means by which to add compelling new content to these important franchises.â€
Telltale will release more information on both game series at a later date.
