Telltale Games Aiming for 2013 Release of The Walking Dead: Season Two (Updated)
Update: Telltale Corrects Themselves
As the original story below indicates, rumors fluttered about today that we wouldn’t see The Walking Dead: Season Two until fall of 2014, according to a quote from Telltale Games CEO Dan Connors in an interview with Eurogamer. As it turns out, he misspoke or was misunderstood a bit.
In a quote given to Game Informer, Telltale corrects the misunderstanding by clarifying that the game is still on point to release this year, not next:
“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 Telltale’s series.”
Telltale Games, the developer responsible for last year’s immensely popular and award-covered game, The Walking Dead: Season One, has hinted that it’s aiming for a fall 2014 release of The Walking Dead: Season Two.
This news comes directly from Telltale Games CEO Dan Connors, who mentioned the release window during a discussion with Eurogamer following the BAFTA award ceremony.
“We’re aiming for fall next year.”
Not really worth mentioning again, but hey, we’ll take any Walking Dead news we can get.
If that’s not enough, last week, one of the writers for the game, Gary Whitta, mentioned that more content could be coming to “bridge” the gap between seasons one and two. Connors discussed that little note too, jokingly mentioning that they “threw him into the zombie pit” after the remark.
Connors went on to mention that he “would think” The Walking Dead: Season Two would come to PS4 given the distinct timing of the console, but clarified that they “don’t have enough information from them [Sony] to announce it or anything.”
“I think there’s a lot of room for us to grow there and take advantage of that and create new experiences with the stats and the shared experiences. There’s a huge opportunity there.”
