The Wolf Among Us 2 has been delayed. Originally scheduled to launch this 12 months, the continued adaptation of Vertigo’s grim fantasy comedian Fables will now launch someday in 2019. The builders say “this delay comes as the result of a few fundamental changes here at Telltale since we first announced the game last summer.”
Telltale says that “we’re committed to exploring new ways to tell our stories. Taking this extra time will allow us not only to focus on quality but also to experiment and iterate in order to craft something truly special.”
Hopefully now we have a variety of “really particular” stuff coming with the largest upcoming PC games.
Since The Wolf Among Us 2 (or season two, the branding continues to commute) was introduced final summer season, Telltale has undergone some radical shifts. There have been major layoffs in November, following the appointment of a new CEO who promised radical modifications within the firm’s tech and improvement practices.
The assertion on the delay suggests Telltale’s severe about transforming the components they’ve made heavy use of since The Walking Dead’s debut in 2012. After a fan requested whether or not future Telltale video games could be “more individualized,” tailor-made to the particular recreation slightly than a company-wide components, author Nicole Martinez replied “that’s certainly the plan for Wolf.”
Exactly what which means stays to be seen, although it’s heartening to listen to additional affirmation that the Telltale components is getting shaken up. We’ve heard from the builders that the original series’ ambiguous ending received’t be addressed within the new collection, and the one clue we’ve actually gotten the content material of the sequel is the snowy imagery accompanying at this time’s announcement.
Telltale did additionally verify in these comments that The Walking Dead’s fourth and final season might be at E3 in some kind. As the primary new collection to come back out after the studio’s shakeup, it would simply shine a lightweight on Telltale’s continued route.
