Adventure game maestros Telltale Games have confirmed that their upcoming #Marvel game will be based on #GuardiansoftheGalaxy.

This is exciting news, and fans eager to hear the details will likely have to look forward to The Game Awards in December, as Telltale Games have a history of unveiling their trailers at the ceremony.

Now, Telltale Games was booked to release a game for Marvel in 2017, but until now we weren't sure which property they were going to tackle—we can thank the ongoing US voice-actor strike for the clarification, as Telltale's latest episodic game has popped up on a list of projects affected by the strike. The official title on the list was 'Guardians of the Galaxy - The Video Game aka. Blue Harvest'.

Cinema or sci-fi fans will realize that 'Blue Harvest' is likely a fake WIP title, and reference to the fake title used for Star Wars: Return of the Jedi.

The main question in our minds is whether the game adaptation will follow the continuity of Marvel's comics or instead relate to the big-screen Marvel Cinematic Universe version. We don't know yet, but Telltale Games have partnered successfully with various TV and movie franchises before.

Since Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is due for release in cinemas next April, it seems that Telltale's project could be planned to coincide with the new film and serve as a companion piece. Interestingly, both Telltale Games' Marvel project and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol .2 were announced around the same time in 2015.

Take a sneak peak at the interstellar action of the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2:

Time Will Tell

Telltale has found success in making episodic adventure games that partner with existing popular franchises like #GameofThrones or #TheWalkingDead. Although the Telltale developers have great design chops, especially from those who cut their teeth in LucasArts, they have come under fire from fans and critics for a lack of polish. As a publisher, they've a reputation for releasing buggy games with serious flaws. These bugs can often spoil the typically great content of their previous games.

As much as we're excited by a Guardians of the Galaxy video game, we would love to see a top-quality release, so here's to hoping that Telltale take their time with this one.
