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."

  • How many of these threads will we have?
  • 1. Female Lead
    2. Implement season taking place during the narrative (seasons like winter, fall, spring be shown, changing the mood and atmosphere)
    3. More horror (silent creepy moments. Ex. Walking in a hallway and seeing a crib rock back and forth with no one being there).
  • When will we get season 2?

    hopefully they don't pull a Sam and Max on us (aka delaying it to a point where people will have to wonder which will come first, the sun going supernova at the end of it's life cycle, or the next season being released shortly before the sun goes supernova.

    ONE. We've had some merging ruckus this morning. ;)
  • Well, for a few reasons. First of all, the ending. Secondly, it's logical. If we were to start off with a whole batch of new characters, what can it really do differently? Sure, there will be different situations and stories, but they could do that anyway, and still keep a character that we all love and are invested in. Because let's face it, eventually all Walking Dead stories are the same. Survivors surviving, people die, zombies, zombies, hard choice, people die, zombies. There's not a whole lot else to be told that would HAVE to be told without Clem.

    Anyway, I know we all think she'll be in it anyway, but I'm just stating my logic for thinking so. Anyone agree, or even more interestingly, disagree?
  • Yea she'll be in. You can tell from the end.
  • Fight on Celm...fight on..
  • They'd be silly not to feature her, considering how attached people are to the character.
  • Well, I would say all the "Clementine will remember that" pop ups in the last conversation point in that direction too.

    But they did the same thing witch the whole "'Carley will remember that' *BOOM* HEADSHOT!" situation, so I'm not that sure, but I'll hope for it nonetheless.
