Telltale co-founder Kevin Bruner dreams of taking on James Bond franchise

Telltale Games co-founder Kevin Bruner would take on the James Bond franchise under the right circumstances, he told OXM.

The company CTO, whose studio is best known for its narrative-driven Walking Dead series, lamented the decisions made by other developers that have turned the James Bond character in a "mass murderer."

"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."

Telltale Games is known for taking on pre-established franchises, including Back to the Future, Jurassic Park, Fables and Game of Thrones. The James Bond series was last brought to gaming platforms in Bizarre Creations' 2010 release 007: Blood Stone and Eurocom's 2012 release 007 Legends. Both studios have since shuttered. Film production company Eon Productions is currently responsible for the copyright and trademarks of the Bond characters on screen.
