Bruner would want it to be more about spying and intrigue…
Speaking to OXM, Telltale Game's chief technology officer and co-founder Kevin Bruner said he would love a shot at making a James Bond 007-themed game.
According to Bruner: "I'm a giant James Bond fan and I'm always frustrated by games that make him a mass murderer. He's a super-spy, and that's a different skillset. The films make him less of a mass murderer, and there's not much killing in the books - more spying and intrigue."
Speaking on new IP's vs. licensed titles, Telltale Games CEO Dan Connors stated: "Licensing has played an important part in enabling this company to do as much as it's done without having to create a new IP wholecloth, which is a big undertaking with a lot of associated risk. [But] as we become bigger and can execute that, it gets more and more attractive. I think we're looking more at 'Can we engage some great storytelling mind to come in and work with us on something and make it not just a game franchise, but a full-on entertainment franchise with comics or a TV show and such and build it all together at once?' We really see that as the next thing that's gonna happen."
Currently, Telltale Games is developing a Game of Thrones title and also a spin-off of Borderlands called Tales from the Borderlands.
