Report: Telltale Games to ditch its own its own tech for Unity game engine

After 15 years of using its own tech narrative games specialist Telltale is adopting Unity.

That's according to Variety, which has heard from several sources claiming that the in-house Telltale Tool tech will not be in use moving forwards. Additionally, several job listings require Unity knowledge.

Creaky engine?

This will no doubt be news well-received by fans, who have long complained about the tech which has been in use for over a decade.

The shift to Unity might also be down to the sheer number of staff Telltale shed earlier this year. Adopting a mainstream and well-known engine will surely reduce the learning curve for new members of staff.
