There has been some confusion it seems. Telltale Games has confirmed in a statement to GameInformer that season two should be around in fall [Northern Hemisphere] 2013, and not 2014.
“The current estimated release window for Season Two of The Walking Dead is for fall of this year (2013), and not next year (2014) as has been reported after a recent interview.”
“We apologize for any confusion and thank you and all of our fans for your continued excitement for Telltale’s series.”
Telltale Games is targeting 2014 for the release of the second season of their episodic zombie infected series.
Studio co-founder and CEO Dan Connors told Eurogamer: “We’re aiming for fall next year.”
On being asked whether the game will arrive on next-generation consoles, he replied, “Gee I don’t know. I would think so, though, but it’s all going to depend on timing I guess. But we don’t have enough information from them [Sony] to announce it or anything,” but he did say that the PS4’s deep integration of online connectivity offers “a huge opportunity” for the game.
“I love that they’re going to invest in the connected experience,” he said. “I think there’s a lot of room for us to grow there and take advantage of that and create new experiences with the stats and the shared experiences. There’s a huge opportunity there.”
If the wait feels a little long, there may be something to keep you occupied for a while, as Telltale Games writer Gary Whitta revealed: “You won’t have to wait for season two to play more Walking Dead,” hinting that there might be a stop-gap of some sort.
Jokingly (at least we hope so), Connors said: “He’s been sacked. We threw him into the zombie pit.”
He did go on to add: “We’ll probably have something to announce fairly soon about what we’re going to do.
“It’ll be different.”
