The Walking Dead developer Telltale Games would love to make a James Bond game if budget and politics were not an issue.

Chief Technology Officer and Co-Founder Kevin Bruner told OXM that he is a massive James Bond fan and would love the opportunity to create a game which saw 007 concentrate more on spying and less on mass murder. “I’m a giant James Bond fan and I’m always frustrated by games that make him a mass murderer,” he said.

“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.”

When asked if the developer would stick with licensing in the future or consider an original IP, CEO Dan Connors replied: “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, 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.”

Telltale recently announced two new titles at the VGX awards last month, the first being a collaboration with Gearbox titled Tales from the Borderlands, and the second being a new game series based off the Game of Thrones television show. The developer is also working on Season 2 of The Walking Dead and Episode 2 of The Wolf Among Us.
