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 like how optimistacly you people are. They haven't even finished half of the first season, but you assume they would get to do a second season. After all the delays so far, season 2 would start like 2014, and be done maybe in 2015.
  • wait theres is going to be a second season?
  • The devs have too much of a hard-on for the comics to do a proper time skip to an older clem. They probably still want to incorporate a bunch of comic characters and locations, and since the comic has only covered about two years of time they can't go too far into the future.

    Yep. Telltale thought that it would be nice to release a second season after the sales of the first episode, which was a million with "no signs of stopping".

    I like how you never actually read anything and never realized that Telltale have already confirmed a second season.

    I would like to see us play a character that is born in the actual Zombie apocalypse or a teen that has no memory of the world before the zombies showed up. It would be pretty interesting I think
    If you haven't read the comics, this is basically Carl. He wasn't born after the apocalypse, but is a pure product of that world. My favorite character and a damn awesome kid.

    He's going to be the last one standing in the comics, imo.

    sounds like a lonely life.
  • It'd make him happy.
