TWD Season 2 speculation/suggestion (merged threads)

In the coming months, Telltale Games will release three more episodes of their adventure game The Walking Dead. They won't stop there, though. Telltale marketing executive Steve Allison said that they will create a second season eventually as well.

"Following the digital release of our fifth episode we will also be coming to North American retail shortly thereafter and this will not be the last The Walking Dead game series that we do," Allison told Polygon.

The Walking Dead has been a huge critical and commercial success for Telltale. The first episode, "A New Day," sold almost 1.7 million copies in its first two months. It's said to be the company's fastest-selling game ever.

The game starts before the events of the Walking Dead show and comic. Lee Everett, a man convicted of murder, has been unexpectedly free as a zombie outbreak sweeps the globe. He and a small group of survivors band together in order to stay alive. As Lee, players must endure zombie attacks as well as internal strife among the survivors.

It's not clear whether the second season of the game will be a direct continuation of the first season. They might just decide to tell a new story with a completely different cast of characters. I'd be happy with either. The writing for these games has proven top-notch so I have faith that Telltale could craft another compelling set of survivors for us to follow.

Episode 3 of Walking Dead will be available in August. "Following the digital release of our fifth episode we will also be coming to North American retail shortly thereafter and this will not be the last The Walking Dead game series that we do."

    I don't think Season Two will start up with an immediate follow-up on the group from 400 Days. It'll probably start with Clementine trying to find them. In this case Shel and Becca. link

    I like the idea of having different opening scenarios depending on which of the 400 Days crew stayed at the camp. Having them meet up with someone like Clementine would be a nice subversion to people thinking that someone not going with Tavia would have automatic negative consequences.

    There'd be a lot of variation to account for though.

    Oh snap! I didn't even notice the shout out. Thanks a lot, new forum. link

    I don't remember my choices in 400 Days and don't care to do them over since I do remember not having enough detail to feel like I was making the right or wrong choice. I didn't trust any of the playable characters and I could see all of them easily being different than what you think at first. It seemed like they were putting you in the shoes of all these different characters because it makes players see them as good instantly which means nothing until you know if they are a main playable character though.

    Most of the information that was withheld from you in making your choices was also withheld from the characters you were playing as. You had about as much information as Vince did about Danny and Justin, you had as much information as Wyatt did about Eddie shooting that guy, you had about as much information as Russell did about Nate, you had as much information as Bonnie did about what was going on in the corn field, and you had as much information as Shel did about the situation with Stephanie.

    And honestly, you had no more reason to trust Lee for the first half hour of Episode 1 than you did to trust of the 400 days survivors. Shel, Russell, and Wyatt seemed pretty straight forward characters to me. Vince and Bonnie were the only ones who might have been a little iffy but I played Bonnie as a super nice person so I trust her. Vince is the only one I'm unsure about but Wyatt did mention that he saved him so that's something. Oh and there's Tavia but she barely counts.

  • I am really looking forward to the details we are going to be getting this month,I really hope we get to find out who the protagonist is as well.

  • The anticipation for season 2 is all that's keeping me alive right now. Everything else in my life has turned to crap.
