‘The Wolf Among Us: Episode 2′ Releases in February
Telltale Games‘ newest episodic series, The Wolf Among Us, which launched its first episode to critical acclaim back in October. Since then, players have been left with jaws dropped for the second episode, but without any explanation for its absence coming from the developer.
Now Telltale has broken the silence, but is still keeping the exact reason for the delay to themselves. The good news is that Episode 2, titled “Smoke & Mirrors” will be arriving in the first week of February, and the team expects future chapters to be released without similar delays.
As fan concerns grew – understandable, since the series’ first episode ended with a cliffhanger now three months old – Telltale president and co-founder Kevin Bruner took to the company’s official forum to confirm that the wait was nearly over:
“It’s been a struggle to get this episode out, for a variety of reasons, but it’s finally ready to go, and you heard it here first!
Ep 2 should be available the first week of February. We are working hard with all of our partners (Xbox, PlayStation, Steam, Apple) to coordinate everything, but we’re confident enough to announce that here. The episode is looking really good (as is the rest of the season!). We are very concerned about the long delay for this episode, but this is one of those occasions where several things conspired against us (not to mention the additional delays due to the holidays). I won’t dive into the details, but it’s been an unusual and specific set of circumstances and we do not anticipate it happening again as we go forward with the rest of the season.
So there you have it. First week of February!”
Now those fans of the adventure game studio who aren’t already dreading/incredibly hungry for the next episode of The Walking Dead Season 2, or anticipating more details on their upcoming Game of Thrones and Borderlands titles, can mark their calendars.
