It's been news for a while now that Telltale Games is partnering with Marvel for a video game. What's not been known since that team-up was announced in April 2015 is what the game would actually be. Now, thanks to information released due to the SAG-AFTRA strike, it looks like that game's identity has been revealed: Telltale is most likely making a "Guardians of the Galaxy" game.
As part of the voice actors strike, a list of games that had yet to strike deals for talent surfaced. Included on the list is "Guardians of the Galaxy - The Video Game a.k.a. Blue Harvest." "Blue Harvest," it should be noted, is a clever nod to the production title "Return of the Jedi" used to keep its filming secret.
The connection to Telltale comes via the game listed underneath "GOTG." Telltale has been behind the "Walking Dead" games, and that game is being listed as produced by "O'Farrell Enterprises, LLC." That's the same company that's listed next to the "Guardians" game. So if Telltale is O'Farrell, then it seems safe to say that Telltale is making a "Guardians of the Galaxy" game.
The game has been scheduled to arrive in 2017, so a "Guardians" game makes perfect sense. "Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2" is scheduled to land in theaters on May 5, 2017. Other Marvel Studios movies arriving in 2017 include "Spider-Man: Homecoming" and "Thor: Ragnarok."
