Telltale Games President Becomes CEO, Original IP in Development
The former CEO of Telltale Games, Dan Connors, has tagged in company president and co-founder Kevin Bruner to take the reins of the popular adventure game studio.
Games Industry reports that Dan Connors is stepping down as CEO of Telltale Games to become an executive advisor as Kevin Bruner ascends to take his place. Bruner was already a president at the company, which he co-founded in mid-2004 with Troy Molander and Connors. Telltale Games is known for its cel-shaded, narrative-focused adventure games, such as The Walking Dead, The Wolf Among Us, Tales from the Borderlands and the new Game of Thrones series.
"2014 marked our tenth consecutive year of continued growth since co-founding Telltale with Kevin Bruner in 2004. In that time, we've been incredibly proud to have accomplished so much with some of the most talented people in entertainment," said Connors. "2015 is the first of the next ten years for an ever-evolving Telltale. As we enter this new phase, and as Kevin transitions to my former role of CEO, I will remain with the company and on the board in an advisory role that will help ensure Telltale's vision of continuing to break new ground as leading storytellers in the entertainment space."
"We're already working on some of the biggest franchises in entertainment," said Bruner. "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."
While no other details were revealed about Telltale Games' new, original IP, we can't wait to see what it is. New episodes of Tales from the Borderlands and Game of Thrones are due to arrive in the coming weeks.
