Telltale continuing Back to the Future series?
Christopher Lloyd is reportedly reprising his role as Doc Brown in an unannounced new game in the Back to the Future series.
It appears Telltale Games is not finished with its Back to the Future episodic adventure series. According to a GameSpot reader account, Christopher Lloyd revealed during a FanExpo session this weekend in Toronto that he will reprise his role as Doc Brown in an unannounced new game in the series.
No further information is available, and a Telltale Games representative told GameSpot, "We are unable to comment on any unannounced titles or projects from Telltale Games."
If Telltale Games were to continue its Back to the Future series beyond its inaugural season, it wouldn't be terribly surprising, given previous comments from the company. In February 2011, Telltale Games' senior vice president of publishing, Steve Allison, said the Back to the Future series was the company's "most successful franchise."
The company's Back to the Future series has since been surpassed in popularity by the firm's Walking Dead series. The first episode in that series sold 1 million copies, becoming the company's fastest-selling game ever.
Telltale Games' Back to the Future game came as part of a 2010 deal with NBC Universal, which also allowed the developer to create its Jurassic Park title, based on Michael Crichton's popular 1990 novel.
The first season of Telltale Games' Back to the Future series spanned five episodes, including It's About Time, Get Tannen, Citizen Brown, Double Visions, and Outatime. The series features the likenesses of the films' central characters Marty McFly and Doc Brown, with Lloyd himself voicing Doc Brown and voice actor A. J. Locascio providing voice work for McFly. Michael J. Fox, who played Marty McFly in the films, had a small cameo role in the fifth and final episode.
