Telltale Games, the developer responsible for The Wolf Among Us, Tales From the Borderlands and The Walking Dead franchises, has alluded to even more unannounced games being in the works. This admission comes during a transition in leadership as the current CEO of Telltale Games steps down.

Dan Connors, the co-founder of Telltale Games and now former CEO, is stepping down to take on a more advisory role. Fellow co-founder Kevin Bruner will swap in as the head of the video game developer. In an interview with GamesIndustry.biz Connor highlighted that Telltale Games has grown well while under his leadership and believes that the company will continue see success in the video game market. The trio of Dan Connors, Kevin Bruner and Troy Molander founded Telltale Games back in 2004. According to a particular paragraph in his interview Bruner confirmed future partnerships and the possibly of new licensed games:

“We’re thrilled to continue our growth and bring our unique style of scripted entertainment to the next generation of digital media, and do that across thousands of different devices. Our top priority is to continue fostering an environment where the most talented and creative storytellers in the industry are working side by side with the world’s biggest creative partners. We’re already working on some of the biggest franchises in entertainment, and when you add our unannounced partnerships and upcoming original IP, it’s clear the most exciting time to be at Telltale is now, and there will continue to be more and more opportunity to innovate ahead of us.”

The biggest news given by Bruner is that a new, original IP is currently under development at Telltale Games. There is more good news for fans as according to the interview there are other unannounced licensed games currently being worked on as well. The Walking Dead franchise is one of the most well known series developed by Telltale Games but the list of licensed games includes Sam & Max, Jurassic Park and just recently Game of Thrones. With the recent announcement of Minecraft: Story Mode Telltale Games currently has more than three episodic franchises being developed at once.
