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."

  • Interesting concept. This would no way have a connection to the first season characters at all?

    well if telltale kills the remaining group from the first season then there wouldnt need to be a connection. Im just saying that this would be the opening(probally the first episode) and maybe by episode 3 they meet up the group from season 1,whoever is left alive that is. Guessing for clementine, ben(if saved in episode 4), and christa.
  • It would be neat as a season 2 protagonist to have molly or christa show up at the compound and then you have an opportunity to recruit her.

    Also they should have you be able to bring people into your group or turn them away or actually kick em out if they are a problem (BEN). I want control over my group mostly;) or at least some kinda control over that would be nice i think.
  • When Episode 5 comes out and we are all happy, how long until season 2 comes out? I'm not stupid, I know it's not going to come out next month, but when WILL it come out, next year maybe?
  • Probably sometime mid/late 2013.
  • Yeah, guessing season 2 will come out mid-late 2013. They've got Fables and King's Quest to do before it. Let's also have Sam and Max season 4 too, shall we?
  • I also agree, Mid/Late 2013 gives Telltale enough time to work on it, but also release the first episode and not make fans wait two years or something.

    On the talk of seasons, do you people thing season 2 will be the final season? or they'll make a season 3? or as much as Sam and Max has?
    cause aslong as it can stay canon to the comics and isnt being whored off from
    I whoudnt mind it one damn bit

    We've had enough amputees, would be nice to have a legitimately disabled protag. We've seen how ZA societies 'get rid' of anyone who cant pull their weight, would be nice to be a character who constantly has to worry about forever pulling his/her weight under the discriminitive watch of the group 'leaders'. Could be a story about protags rise to glory.
  • Maybe for a secondary character but that would be tricky for a main protagonist.
  • No way.. another name for cripples in zombie movies is "zombie bait"......
