Telltale Games, the defunct developer behind the likes of The Walking Dead, Tales from the Borderlands, and The Wolf Among Us, is set to make a return – albeit in a substantially different form – following the announcement that holding company LCG Entertainment has secured Telltale’s name and some of its licenses.

As reported by Polygon, the new version of Telltale – overseen by Jamie Ottilie and Brian Waddle, founder and CEO of developer Galaxy Pest Control and ex-sales-and-marketing head for Havok respectively – will have the back-catalogue rights to The Wolf Among Us and Batman, alongside original Telltale properties including Puzzle Agent. As such, some games de-listed from digital storefronts earlier this year could potentially soon make a return.

Furthermore, while the new Telltale plans to “stay small over the next six months”, it appears that a number of the 250-plus employees laid-off prior to the studio’s closure last September have been bought into the fold. According to Polygon, some previous staff members have been offered freelance roles, “with full-time positions possible in the future.”
