Telltale Games will finally produced a new series based on its own, original IP.

Some big news coming out of Sam and Max developer Telltale Games. First up, there's a new boss in town, as President and Co-Founder Kevin Bruner has ascended to become the new CEO of the company. Next up, Telltale has announced plans for a new game based on... an entirely original IP!

After Telltale achieved runaway success with it's fantastic take on Robert Kirkman's The Walking Dead, it quickly became known as "those guys who make adventure games out of existing IP", announcing plans last year for Game of Thrones, Borderlands, and even Minecraft adventure games. But, with the exception of the lesser-known (and considerably less popular) Puzzle Agent, Telltale has never actually produced an adventure game based on its own, original IP.

"Each year since Telltale's 2004 birth has been more exciting than the last, and 2015 will be no exception." - Kevin Burner

But that's set to change with the new boss, who stated that "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," in an official statement.

Additionally, Telltale confirmed to us that a third season of The Walking Dead in partnership with Skybound Entertainment is also in development, though it wouldn't give us any further details or release windows.

Looks like an exciting year for Telltale fans is in store for 2015!
