Developer Telltale Games released its last major hit on a plethora of platforms — but not Android. That trend is likely coming to an end.

The studio’s The Walking Dead is available on PC, Mac, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, iOS, PlayStation Vita, and Ouya. That last one, Ouya, is a gaming console that uses a version of the Android operating system. It turns out that means that Telltale is nearly all set to release its future games on Google’s mobile OS.

“In bringing The Walking Dead to Ouya, we will have theoretically enabled the Android platform for all of our games going forward,” Telltale spokesperson Job Stauffer told GamesBeat.

Telltale announced the Ouya version of its The Walking Dead zombie adventure game earlier today. It’s due out on that platform in winter. Stauffer wouldn’t confirm if Telltale intends to release The Walking Dead on Android’s Google Play market in addition to Ouya.

“We do expect to release other Telltale games on devices with a Tegra 3 [graphics processor] or higher in the near future but have nothing to announce at the moment,” he said.

The Tegra 3 is an Nvidia mobile graphics chip. It powers devices like the aforementioned Ouya and Google’s original — and popular — Nexus 7 tablet.

Telltale is currently working on Season Two of The Walking Dead and The Wolf Among Us based on the comic-book series Fables.
