'Guardians of the Galaxy' Latest News & Update: Telltale Working On Video Game
Peter Quill and his crew from the "Guardians of Galaxy" are on its way to your consoles.
It was reported by WCCFTech last year that Telltale Games announced a partnership with Marvel Entertainment to create a new game set in the Marvel Universe. It turns out that the said partnership resulted to a project. The speculated project is going to be a "Guardians of the Galaxy" game, according to an SAG-AFTRA listing.
ComicBookMovie.com shared the screenshot of the PDF that shows listed games in development that have not struck a new deal with SAG-AFTRA. The listing below shows "Guardians of the Galaxy - The Video Game aka Blue Harvest," also included is "The Walking Dead Season 3" under the company O' Farrell Entertprises, LLC.
SAG-AFTRA was recently reported to have gone on strike and the said list serves as a negotiation tactic to show games that would be affected by the strike. SAG-AFTRA started its strike against selected video game companies in October for better wages, according to the Union President Gabrielle Carteris, as noted some reports.
"It's important to us to see progress on the issue of secondary compensation. In the spirit of compromise, we made it an option, but they're taking advantage of that to make it look like we are having a dispute over terminology, when it fact our dispute is about the biggest dispute these parties have had in the 20-plus years that this contract has existed," Carteris said in a statement.
Both Telltale Games and Marvel Entertainment have not yet commented on the leaked 2017 title. However, Eurogamer stated that the rumor may be confirmed at Geoff Keighley's The Game Awards event in December.
Meanwhile, "The Walking Dead Season 3" video game is expected to be released next year. Telltale Games has been successful in the world of video games. "The Walking Dead," "Game of Thrones," "Jurassic Park," "Tales from the Borderland" story mode for "Minecraft," "The Wolf Among Us", and "Back to the Future" have all been surprisingly successful for them, despite many receiving some negative to mediocre reviews.
