The rumors were true! Telltale’s Guardians Of The Galaxy – The Video Game is coming out next year. And yes, it was revealed at The Game Awards as expected. But that really is all we know for now, as we only got to hear some of the great soundtrack and the logo. Who knows if it’s based on the MCU or stars any of the folks from the film. Still, it was a pretty fun teaser all the same.

April of 2015 feels like an eternity ago. That was when Telltale and Marvel announced that they were working together on an unnamed project. Since then, they haven't revealed any information on the project, including what Marvel property the game would be about. Unfortunately for both companies, it looks like the secret is out, thanks to the actors union leaking Guardians Of The Galaxy - The Video Game on a list of upcoming projects.
"We're Telltale's Guardians of the Galaxy"
Codenamed Blue Harvest (the same one as Return of the Jedi), Guardians Of The Galaxy - The Video Game has apparently been in the works for some time. Though keeping it a secret until closer to launch has been Telltale Games' plan these days. We only first heard about their Batman game a few months before release.
So, now that we know about the game's existence, when will we learn more? While Telltale could respond by announcing it now, there seem to be bigger plans. Like in previous years, Telltale plans to unveil its next title at December's The Game Awards.
Eurogamer reports the Guardians Of The Galaxy - The Video Game will be revealed at December's awards ceremony. That's when we'll also get some idea of the release date and the plot. Though that shouldn't stop us from speculating now.
Will It Be Based on the Film?
With Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 coming to theaters May 5, 2017, you might assume Guardians Of The Galaxy - The Video Game will accompany it. However, Telltale has a spotty history of direct recreations of the most popular adaptations of things.
Yes, Telltale's Game of Thrones is set in the HBO series' continuity, but the Batman season is in its own continuity. Telltale's The Walking Dead is close to the comic book continuity, not the TV series. So will Guardians Of The Galaxy - The Video Game just star the somewhat similar comic book continuity?
As soon as we know, we'll be sure to tell you. So stay tuned to Fandom for whenever Guardians Of The Galaxy - The Video Game is officially announced.
