Telltale, has announced that Season Two of the gripping series, TWD: The Game, is set for release in the fall.
After the gripping Season 2 of The Walking Dead, Telltale Games has announced that they plan to release the Season 2 version of the game in the fall of this year. However, in respect to what Telltale CEO Dan Connors told Eurogamer a couple days back, another representative from Telltale informed Game Informer overnight that the Season 2 game has an “estimated release window for Season Two of The Walking Dead…this Fall (2013), and not next year as has been reported after a recent interview” After this announcement, the spokesperson proceeded to “apologize for any confusion and thank you and all of our fans for your continued excitement in the series".
The Walking Dead: The Game has won multiple Game of the Year Awards, and will most likely be seen as next year’s winner, as a result of something mentioned back when Gary Whitta accidentally mentioned that “we have a little something extra for you between Season One and Season Two”. If Season Two is able to offer a little something extra this time around, I think it can ensure its place alongside its predecessor, Season One, as Game of the Year.
Telltale has always been known for making their games available across all platforms, and judging from their flexibility in the past, players should expect to see Season Two on next–gen consoles. Something promising for the transition into next–gen is when other representatives from Telltale noted that, “a lot more social and in-between episode features for Season Two that definitely exploit what the new platforms have to offer". What proved even more exciting is that Telltale developers have been discussing the possibility of allowing the transfer of saved games from PS3 to PS4; this is something that many gamers have wanted since the beginning. If the developers pull through with this, they will definitely gain my vote for the next Game of the Year awards.
