If you’ve read a few of my articles over at the games portion of Kitguru, you’ll know I’m a big fan of Telltale’s Walking Dead game. In-fact, I made it my game of the year 2012 because at the end it made me cry. For anyone else as emotionally invested in the series of episodes, you’ll be pleased to know that Season two is coming this Autumn – a year sooner than many expected.
“The current estimated release window for Season Two of The Walking Dead is for fall of this year (2013), and not next year (2014) as has been reported after a recent interview,” said a Telltale spokesperson to GameInformer last night. “We apologise for any confusion and thank you and all of our fans for your continued excitement for Telltale’s series.”
It was initially thought that the second season wouldn’t arrive until the same time in 2014, leaving gamers feeling saddened that it would be that long until they could see how the story progressed.
Still, we won’t even have to wait until Autumn to get a taste of Walking Dead adventure action, as we learned last week that there will be something to bridge the gap between the two seasons. Though what that will be, remains to be seen.
KitGuru Says: I’m certainly looking forward to see where the story goes. Since it follows the comics closely, it’ll be interesting to see how they intertwine the game and the print medium’s stories.
