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."

  • @Mornai said: I don't there is a main PC or type of PC for the series as a whole. It's just showing the hellish world that various types of survivors must go through, and we see an example of the struggles and personal tragedy that they suffer through the eyes of Lee. In the end he was just one among many who tried to survive.

    I'm just saying that if the series had some kind of story trajectory, it would make sense if it followed the pattern I described above. If Kenny took Lee's place in season 2, we could assume he also dies by the end of episode 10, albeit under different circumstances from Lee's, leaving Clem alone again. For season 3, we could then assume direct control of Clem and bring her arc to a close through episodes 11-15.

    Don't take any of this too seriously. I'm just spewing off crazy theories here.

  • @Robert Morgan said: I'd like to pose this question to everyone: If WALKING DEAD is meant to be more of an interactive TV show than a video game series, who is the main character supposed to be? It obviously isn't Lee; Telltale killed him before the first season was over.

    So it has to be Clementine, right? But if it's Clementine, and the entire series revolves around her growing up amidst the zombie apocalypse, where does that leave the player if Clem won't become the PC? As her mentor, apparently.

    Will each season be about a different kind of mentor figure who adopts Clem as the series goes on? Lee in the first season, Kenny or Molly in the second season, etc.?

    Sure, you could criticize this as becoming repetitious, but not if the PC is radically different from the one that preceded him/her.

    My two cents: TWD isn't about Rick and Lee. It's about Carl and Clem growing up in the apocalypse.

    Even though I would like a NEW parental figure for Clem in season 2, her personality will probably be different. She opened up to Lee due to her innocent personality in season 1. I wonder if it will be different in season 2.

  • Idea although finding a boat and then off to some island or just set drifting sounds like bliss,the lack of anything for supplies the group would struggle,even if they had someone like Kenny the fisherman on board :) so where has ALL the medicine,clothes,food,water,supplies to last years if need be? a Supermarket or Mall even though every dead game and film revolves around this at some stage if you had to act in real life it probably would be the place to go.

    different options to get from A to B? car,train,on foot,running for your life LOL

  • @Zeruis said: My two cents: TWD isn't about Rick and Lee. It's about Carl and Clem growing up in the apocalypse.

    Definitely.

    I'm Calling it...you heard it here first.

    The end game is to have Clem and Carl meet up in a few years after each has experienced hell and they will be the redeemers of Humanity.

    Now how the amazing story writers of telltale and TWD get that all together...well those are the trees...im showing you the forest.

    its fun to speculate...isnt it?? :rolleyes:

  • i vote for a new group. Separate from this one. at the end of series 2 have two of our new survivors meet Clem in the field and that starts series 3. giving the gamers a break from the "nanny" role is good. It will also give the writers more diversity with the new story so we can have a greater impact on series 3. In series 2 if our choices dynamically change who survives to make it in series 3 we will be the ultimate deciders of who the two shadowy figures are.

    that'd be pretty Kool

    I suppose if the writers wanted to avoid being boxed in by continuity issues from S1, this is the best route they could take.

  • Hi guys and welcome to another theory! I am going to ask you guys just to watch my theory video because it is very hard to explain. Also please show your support and I've told you how to many times and you do it anyway so thanks you awesome people. You must give this theory a chance. But I think Lee and Clementine had a helper in episode 4 and 5. I think this mainly because near the end of the game where Clem and Lee are walking through the zombies and Clem sees her parents and Lee faints. I can't imagine that she carried him all the way to the shop where they hid by herself. So I think someone has been following them and has decided to help them so they wouldn't die. I believe that you see this person twice in episode 4. Once at Crawford when you are going to the autoshop and you see a shadow dart across the screen. You may be saying no way that's Molly but how did Molly then get on the roof that fast and how did the walker doctor get on the roof in the first place? And another time you may see him is when you are burying that boy Kenny found in the attic. That shadow looks like the man who kidnaps Clem but he coaches little league and I doubt a little league coach would have the balls to go out into the open of a zombie infested city and stare a big black man right in the face. So I think that also was him, whoever it was, maybe he is related to the characters, maybe not. Leave in the comment box what you think.

    Hope you found it interesting and I'll post my next theory soon! STAY AWESOME! :D
    Later. :)

  • *EXTENSION* Maybe this guy is the new protagonist in season 2 of The Walking Dead Game?

  • I think you need to calm down with all these prediction threads. One will do.
