Telltale president would love to change James Bond's game persona


Kevin Bruner, Telltale co-founder and president, is a big fan of James Bond – he's just not happy with how most video games portray the British MI6 agent. When asked by OXM which dream license he'd like his studio to adapt, Bruner's mind went directly to 007.

"I'm a giant James Bond fan and I'm always frustrated by games that make him a mass murderer," Bruner explained to OXM. "He's a super-spy, and that's a different skillset. The films make him less of a mass murderer, and there's not much killing in the books - more spying and intrigue." The last game to star James Bond, 007 Legends from Eurocom, certainly contributed to that mass murderer image.

Even if Telltale somehow acquired the Bond license, we imagine it'd be tough to immediately start production on a game. Telltale is quite busy working on the next episode of The Wolf Among Us' debut season along with the next episode in The Walking Dead's second season. On top of those, there are new announced projects in Tales from the Borderlands and Game of Thrones due this year.
