In some news that’s sure to have many of you howling at the moon in disappointment, it’s been revealed that the hotly anticipated second season of Telltale’s The Wolf Among Us has now been pushed back to 2019.
Said second season was first announced at last year’s San Diego Comic Con, but now Telltale has taken to their website to confirm that the release has been pushed back from late this year to next year.
The reason for this seems to be down to the restructuring that Telltale undertook last year; a restructuring that saw 25% of their workforce let go.
Still, Telltale has reiterated its stance on moving forward with a new season of The Wolf Among Us, explaining that they’re “committed to exploring new ways to tell our stories” and that the extra time will allow them to “focus on quality but also to experiment and iterate in order to craft something truly special.”
For those unfamiliar with 2014’s The Wolf Among Us, the game sees players taking control of Bigby Wolf; the one and the same ‘big, bad wolf’ that you’ve heard so much about. A cop in Fabletown, Bigby is a rough-around-the-edges sort who is tasked with unravelling a corrupt, twisted plot of murder and deception that’s threatening to shake Fabletown to its very core. The player is tasked with deciding what direction and decisions Bigby makes via dialogue trees, with each and every decision having ramifications down the line. The game is a prequel of sorts to Bill Willingham’s much-loved Fables comic book series.
At this juncture, we’ve yet to be given any sort of exact release date or even rough release date, bar that The Wolf Among Us: Season 2 will arrive at some point in 2019.
As ever, expect more on this as it continues to develop.
