The narrative-driven adaptation of the Caped Crusader may be making its return soon.
In a posting on New Zealand’s Film & Movie Ratings page, there’s been notice of a new project called Batman: The Enemy Within – Season Pass. Kent Mudle, the director for the first season of Batman: The Telltale Series, is listed under the same title.
If this is in fact the name of the newest season for Batman, it follows the new naming format Telltale Game’s is taking with recent seasons, such as The Walking Dead: A New Frontier. Another thing to keep in mind is that recently Telltale has begun to work on multiple games simultaneously, with the new Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series beginning right as the third season of The Walking Dead was wrapping up.
Telltale still has a queue to work with though before they can get to working on Batman. Minecraft: Story Mode was just announced to be receiving a second season, and you could anticipate the season premiere may arrive sometime around the conclusion of Guardians of the Galaxy’s first season if Telltale continues to follow their recent release schedule. So don’t be surprised if we see the company pounding out new episodes of Batman and Minecraft at the same time between late 2017 and early 2018.
Without going into any spoilers, anyone who played the first season of Telltale’s adaptation of Batman shouldn’t be surprised that the company decided to green-light another season. There are sure to be just as many twists and turns in the unannounced new season, given that the common lore of Batman has been officially thrown out the window since the beginning.
One of the biggest hopes for the next season (and anyone who has played Episode 5 of Season 1 will understand) is that the technical issues that littered the final chapter are taken care of. Telltale’s game are amazing when it comes to their story-telling and character development, but reports of framing issues and software crashes have been a constant across all of the company’s projects for years now.
So what do you think of another season for the Gotham vigilante? Who else from the Batman universe do you want to see make an appearance in a possible second season? What other twists and turns can we expect from the alternate universe of Bruce Wayne? Again, nothing is official yet, but with four Walking Dead seasons, a second Mincraft season coming, and a confirmed yet-unannounced second season for Game of Thrones, it wouldn’t surprise anyone if a return to Gotham were to happen sooner rather than later.
