The Walking Dead Game Preps for a Season 2 Launch this Fall
In a statement issued to GameInformer, Telltale has confirmed that the follow up to its ‘Game of Year’ award winner, The Walking Dead , will be releasing this fall. The game was originally expected to release early next year. The statement was issued in response to rumors of another The Walking Dead title coming to fruition. It seems the studio might have also been working on a Marvel Superheroes related game, but instead is shifting its focus to the ‘Season 2’ release.
“The current estimated release window for Season Two of The Walking Dead is for Fall of ‘this’ year (2013), and not ‘next’ year (2014) as has been reported after a recent interview. We apologize for any confusion and thank you and all of our fans for your continued excitement for the series!”
There is already DLC in the works for the original season that will lead up to the start of the second. It looks like we won’t have to wait long to continue Clementine’s story.
In a recent interview with IGN, Telltale went on to explain what Season 2 may have in store:
“[W]e’re doing a second season of The Walking Dead. That’s going to be a big part of what we’re putting people to work on this year. Right now it’s about figuring out the right way to approach the story, the right way to handle this that’s going to work for what we’re trying to accomplish and give it legs. Certainly we believe there are more stories to tell in The Walking Dead’s universe. The show continues to be huge. People understand what we’re doing. We’re going to continue to work on it. It’s a rich world for what we’re trying to do. We still have a lot of ideas to explore in that world.”
