The Hope Among Us
Hello friends and foes,
Some of you may know me, some of you may not but I've been a fan of TWAU pretty much since I ran into it. Back in late 2015 there was a pretty significant influx of "TWAU will never get a sequel" "All hope is lost" and that type of threads. Now, I am aware that by the time I am posting this the situation have turned around but to counter any possible negativity - as people have various opinions about the matter - I've decided to make a little fansite regarding the game. It is probably more of a fanboy fan review at this point, but I've spent a couple of cold nights to make it nice so I hope at least some of you will find it decent.
But what's the point of all this, you may ask? Well, as someone have pointed that out a couple of weeks or months ago, it is for the best when developers see that even after 2 years there is still a pretty solid interest in the potential sequel. I am here today not only to share my thoughts, but also to share some facts which I thought would be good to clarify:
Telltale Games have never confirmed the sequel for The Wolf Among Us. KDRAMasters and Videogameblogger articles are fake and clickbait, the only reliable source of information is Telltale Blog, Telltale Facebook Page, Telltale Twitter and Telltale YouTube Channel.
At the same time it is important to point out the fact that a lot of people seem to be ignoring - Telltale has never denied the potential sequel either. And they've had A LOT of opportunities to do so, but instead all we are hearing is "We have nothing to say", "Not at this time" aswell as some mild teasing such as "These lips are sealed"
For as long as they won't directly deny another Season of TWAU, there is a chance. It is also worth noting that unlike TWD and GoT, Telltale had a contract for only one season for The Wolf Among Us so it obviously might require some time and effort for them to obtain a new contract for the second season if they are up for it. Nonetheless, Telltale have never denied a possibility of seeing more Wolf in the future, even before the game premiered
Another slice of hope may come from one of the most recent announcements. Telltale's Batman game is obviously coming from the same basket as TWAU, and that basket is DC Comics. Existance of Batman game may prove that DC was happy enough with the sales of TWAU to continue cooperation with TTG, which may eventually end up with negotiating another contract for TWAU. According to Steamspy, TWAU is the 4th most sold Telltale game ever. It also has the highest metascore alongside TWD Season One, so it can be considered a success. Taking into account that Poker Night is a PC exclusive title, The Wolf Among Us is more than likely the second best selling series out of all Telltale titles.
Well, once again I end up on writing a wall of text which I apologize for. TWAU's future might be in shadows for now, but as you can see we shouldn't come with any major conclusions as potential sequel for this great game was never confirmed nor denied at the same time. Just stay hopefull and patient, if we ever see another adventure of the Big Bad Wolf it probably won't be soon, but it doesn't mean it's not going to happen at all
Hope you all are gonna have a good day!
