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."

  • @Zeruis said: I'm actually cool with it. I take the game as canon to the comics, while some people don't.

    Which is why I don't want any tv show characters in the game.

    It shouldn't be that difficult for people to notice anyway, as it says "based on the comic book by Robert Kirkman, Charlie Adlard and Tony Moore" almost immediately in the credits for every single episode. Those words get their very own screen 15 seconds after the ending, too. That's hard to miss.

  • So what if the very first decision you have to make in the whole game comes back and means something in season 2?

    I'm talking of course about Chet. he gets bitten and dies if you choose to leave at night time, but he lives if you choose to leave immediately. Nothing you could've been aware of, naturally. But what if he heroically comes to the rescue at the start of season 2, and it's harder to get out of the situation you're in if he did get bitten?

    I'd like to see little decisions like that have a long-term impact.

  • We had the stranger... we had a long term decision. And not as far fetched as that hick Chet

  • @Mornai said: I think he means "bad" as in depressed, sad etc. because Season 2(or the other content) isn't out yet.

    Yea..I just hope they can release it a little bit earlier than fall -.-
    (or was the releasing thing just a rumor D: )

    No, they have mentioned multiple times they are working on Season 2 as we speak, and will attempt to release it by the end of the year. In the meantime, you're gonna have to wait patiently, lurk around these forums (my way of passing the time atm :P) or indulge in some other form of Walking Dead media, comics, tv show, new game etc...

    Ah,well,it's good to know this might come out this year..Still,i hope we get something before,like a trailer or something.

    Personally, I would rather them stay quiet until they release it. Like, no relsease date, no trailer, no poeple slipping anything up to the media. Just one day, I go on Steam, and it's there. When people announce stuff too early, I get overly hyped, and it is never as good as the hype. When someone announces the date of a game or flm I really like, I start counting down the seconds until it comes out, which is just torture. So, I would prefer it if I can carry on with my life without over hyping S2, or waiting specifically for it.
