The Walking Dead: Season Two is Coming This Fall
Last week the superb writer that oversaw the first season of Telltale’s Walking Dead adaptation suggested it’d be a while yet before gamers’ get to chomp down on Season Two.
I guess it really depends on your definition of “a while” since it was announced today to IGN that a freshly rotten order of downloadable episodes will commence in the Fall. Despite Telltale’s CEO, Dan Conners, insisting 2014 would be the earliest Season Two would drop, a company representative corrected his statement by saying, “The current estimated release window for Season Two of The Walking Dead is for Fall of ‘this’ year (2013), and not ‘next’ year (2014)." So there you have it.
With the resounding thud that was Telltale’s disappointing take on Jurassic Park still stinging the pain responders in my brain, I had cavernously low expectations for The Walking Dead: The Game. It almost seemed Telltale was destined to goof up another of my favorite properties. But I plunged into Episode 1 and came out the other side of Episode 5 a changed man. Some sort of devil’s magic occurred between Jurassic Park and Walking Dead because the ladder is high brow, gut punching drama fantastically executed – if it weren’t for their logo on the box, I would’ve figured a completely different studio handled the game; a game that quickly and surely has become one of my absolute favorites of this generation.
In short: I want Season Two something fierce.
