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."

  • "What Is It?

    Sometime next year, Telltale releases the first teaser image for The Walking Dead: The Game Season 2, and Clementine’s nowhere to be seen. The Internet freaks out. However, here’s how the game will go: we start as a new character, we meet the new group, and we cope as things go horribly wrong. Walkers tip over the walls and eat everyone but us and a friend; we’re forced to flee. In the final moments of the episode, we’re lamenting our luck as we cross a sun-covered hill, and then – bam – we see a little girl off in the distance. Credits roll.

    How Likely Is It?

    Very Likely. With this option, Telltale gets the chance to flesh out the universe, and then we get to see how our final choices with Clem have changed her character. If we told her to avoid groups, does she run from our new character? If we didn’t tell her to keep her hair short, will she let it grow during Season 2? Bringing Clem back – whether she’s a fixture of Season 2 or just a one episode guest star – allows our choices as Lee to live on and intertwine with our new character."

    Read the whole story here:

    So, what do you guys think about this? I haven't really thought of this, but it makes perfect sense and would hate to see it go any other way. (Ign pretty much gave all the possible ways to happen so one of them must be right.)

  • It would be disappointing if Clementine doesn't find Christa and Omid. Well, maybe not disappointing, just depressing. I like the idea of seeing new characters and it would be quite a hair raiser seeing that ending for the first episode of season 2. I'd be extremely disappointed if Clem finds a new father figure though or if she's still dependent on adults.

  • I'm hoping she learns to not need someone to help her anymore. Maybe she is the main playable character and she helps the two survivors?

  • I want to see Clem with Christa and Omid as well. It'd be a shame to have the two characters at the top of the hill to be completely new, who have NO idea what she's been through. She can't just join these people, can she?

    On another note, shouldn't this be posted in the season 2 speculation thread at the top?

  • It would certainly be a great follow up. Instead of following the escaped guy. We can follow the girl as a older person having to do horrible things. The problem is bad things end up usually happening to the person at the end of the season and I'd rather see her vanish and assume shes okay.

    Then they try to use her in series and remove her midway through. I think it's very early to start talks but the company should at least make the game by mid year if they want a repeat of sales. People still wanting more of the game.

    She's 9 years old, she is going to need some help from others. She couldn't do half the things that Lee could do because she is only a kid. Playing as her means that we wouldn't be able to make any decisions because no one listens to a 9 year old.

  • More or less what I've been thinking, if I do say so myself. ;p

    That is, a new group of survivors that will at some point meet the survivors from Lee's group.

  • No matter what they do, I hope they bring back Molly somehow. Her situation in season 1 one seems to be made to bring her back as a character in season 2.

  • Thinking about Season 2 again.
    Here is another idea. In Season 1 where you are forced to make a decision to save either Shawn or Duck, then Carley or Doug. There should be another option (well not really an option but another choice). By not doing anything at all you could lose both characters and the story STILL continues and changes things drastically.
