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."

    Please Telltale make the season 2 for us and i can say that end left a taste of want more for all the fans of the serie.
    Stop begging... season 2 is already confirmed! :D

    But we can beg for them to release it fast... though not at the cost of epicness!
  • to be honest, i kinda wanted an entire new group, so i wouldnt have to worry about clementine dying somewhere in this story. dont get me wrong, clementine was the character i cared for the most, but having to know that theres an enitre season of her potentially dying is worrysome haha. anyways, i think arbitrator has a good idea!
  • I think it would be really cool if the main character in season 2 would be a black jewish canadian transgender character.

    The supporting characters could be one that is a lesbian, but she is butch, and is a little person (dwarfism)

    Another could be a gay man, but he's 90 years old, and latino.

    Another character, could maybe play the same role as clementine. This time though it could be a asian girl with downsyndrome who is in love with the trans geneder main character, thus creating alot of conflicts between the 2.

    WOuld be very interesting to say the least, and would break alot of molds of gaming than your sterotypical white attractive, 6 foot bald male model main character.
  • I want an Asian female, mother of two, who takes Clem under her wing.
  • Well, it may sound shitty, but people want a main character that they can relate with. Lee was great in the fact you actually could become him and make him yourself.

    Weather it be a male, female, black, white, ect... The character has to be something people can understand.

    Your ideas just wouldn't work in a story that would sell.
  • Are you serious?!

    These ideas are great!

    I am sure the target group would be delighted.
  • 20-25 year old protag male or 25-31 female. Any race, religion just meet Clem
  • I want to play as Lee's wife.
  • Worst Case Scenario for us and Telltale...

    We find out that Season 2 is basically the story that takes up a 3 month time-frame between episode 1 and 2 from the first season.
