You may remember that, last year, Telltale Games and Marvel Games announced a partnership for a game with a 2017 release – then went completely silent about it. It seems that game will be based around the Guardians of the Galaxy.
As spotted by ComicBookMovie, a list of in-development projects released by SAG-AFTRA – the voice actors’ union currently on strike in hopes of a better deal from video game companies – outs “Guardians of the Galaxy – The Video Game a/k/a Blue Harvest”.
The signatory for that project, O’Farrell Enterprises, is also listed alongside Telltale’s The Walking Dead Season 3, leading to the assumption that this is the unannounced Telltale production.
Incidentally, that second title, “Blue Harvest”, was the moniker used to keep production of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi a secret, which is a fairly Guardians-y joke in itself.
Back when the collaboration was announced, some of us were rooting for a Moon Knight series, but between the new film and a boisterous action-comedy sensibility not a million miles from the excellent Tales of the Borderlands, Guardians seems a pretty good fit to me.
