Right now video game voiceover actors part of SAG-AFTRA (Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Artists) are on strike after a long string of unsuccessful negotiations with some of the top companies in gaming over things such as more secondary compensation, transparency when they are hired, and on-set safety precautions among other things. Right now the strike effects games that were in production as of February 17 of last year.
A recent negotiation tactic from SAG-AFTRA saw them release a list of games that haven’t struck new deals as of right now and one of the games listed has possibly revealed the game that Marvel Comics and Telltale Games are collaborating on and from the looks of it we’re going on an adventure with the Guardians of the Galaxy.
Marvel announced back in April 2015 that it and Telltale would team-up to make a game, but since then things have been silent on that front. That game is attributed “O’Farrell Enterprises, LLC” as “Guardians of the Galaxy- The Video Game AKA Blue Harvest”. What leads this to possibly being from Telltale? Well under that is another game attributed to “O’Farrell” and it is the third season of The Walking Dead game and we already know that game is well on its way.
Oh and for readers with keen eyes, yes Blue Harvest was the secret production title for Return of the Jedi when it was filming.
Guardians of the Galaxy might be a pretty good choice considering the game is set to release in 2017, you know, the same year Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 comes out and those that aren’t comic readers might want more of the crew and knowing what love Telltale has put into its Batman game, it’ll be a treat for the comic readers too.
What do think of the possibility of playing a Guardians of the Galaxy game? What characters do you want to see in it? Is this a great choice? What Marvel superhero or group do you want to have a Telltale video game? Let us know in the comments below.
