Telltale Games is reportedly working on a game based on Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, according to details released by actors union SAG-AFTRA and a report from ComicBookMovie.com.
As part of SAG-AFTRA members’ ongoing voice actors strike, the union released a list of video game titles — most of them referred to under their code names — that are both part of and not part of the strike. One of those documents reportedly listed Guardians of the Galaxy: The Video Game (aka Blue Harvest) alongside Telltale’s The Walking Dead Season 3 as in development at O’Farrell Enterprises, LLC. That company is registered under the name of Darragh O'Farrell, the voice over producer for The Walking Dead, Tales from the Borderlands and other Telltale games.
The document (PDF) that outed Telltale’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Video Game appears to have been updated. The current version of that list of titles now refers to the project as “Untitled Marvel Game aka Blue Harvest,” the alias being a reference to the working title of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi.
Marvel and Telltale games announced a partnership in 2015. At the time, the two companies said that their first collaboration would be released sometime in 2017. Marvel plans to release a sequel to a movie based on the franchise, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, in May.
Marvel Games vice president Jay Ong told Polygon earlier this year that the company has been working on an aggressive push to bring its properties to console platforms and is working with AAA game developers on a number of titles. Marvel and Sony revealed a new Spider-Man game in development at Insomniac Games at this year’s E3.
