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."

    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?
    I'm sure they're going to keep it going for as long as it remains popular and making money.
  • that would be kinda making it like skyrim or Mass effect so... thats just my opinion
  • Nah.. Nice idea, though.
  • So basically your suggestion is to completely change the game. That would be no way near as fun for the point and click genre, and it also wouldn't be great from a storytelling and logistics point of view. Telltale make point and clicks, not RPGs.
  • What's wrong with corn?
  • funny how i pictured a guy in a wheelchair stuck at the bottom of the stairs and zombies quickly eat him.

    If the protag is gonna be disabled then there isnt alot of hope for surviving.

    I would suggest a protag who has been through some of the zombie stuff already and has had to cut off 1 of his arms and legs but has been given a prosthetic arm and leg.(thinking about this makes me picture edward from full metal alchemist with his automail arm and leg)

    Amusingly that's the first thing that popped into my head when I read this thread....
  • I'd actually be really up for this. I guess it would be hard from a gameplay standpoint, but especially a blind/deaf protag would be really cool. There aren't nearly enough games that portray people with physical disabilities in a good light.
