Today, the video game developer Telltale Games officially unveiled the forthcoming release of The Wolf Among Us Season 2, confirming fan speculation that the next run of content for the series was to be revealed soon after the studio offered up an announcement teaser regarding the title just a couple of days ago. As it so happens, the second season of the episodic and interactive fantasy/mystery game is currently slated to be released sometime in the “second half” of 2018.
As seen toward the end of Telltale Games’ video below, The Wolf Among Us Season 2 was not revealed outright, as the footage begins with the first season’s voice actors and developers poring over tweets from fans online who have been clamoring for a sequel. After that, the clip segues into some looks of the game interspersed with the title’s team discussing what made the first season a solid achievement and how the dedication of fans’ support led to Season 2 coming to pass.
For those unaware, The Wolf Among Us is based on Bill Willingham’s Fables comic book series, with the Telltale Games title focusing on the character Bigby Wolf as its protagonist. As of now, the second season for the game lacks an official title, specific details regarding what the plot will contain, and an exact release date as to when fans of the series should expect to continue the story after the last season’s great, but rather ambiguous ending.
Telltale Games’ announcement of The Wolf Among Us Season 2 has the developer confirming that it will be available for “all major gaming consoles and mobile gaming devices,” including Mac, PC, PS4, Xbox One, and iOS and Android devices. However, Nintendo Switch launch hasn’t officially been revealed, but the studio has made sure to state that “additional platforms are yet to be announced,” leaving open the possibility of the title coming to the Big N’s newest console.
All things considered, The Wolf Among Us Season 2 ought to satisfy fans who have been craving a followup since the last episode’s release in July 2014. The season finale received rave reviews, and ultimately set the bar on a significantly high rung for the forthcoming season to clear, so it will be interesting to see what Telltale Games has cooked up this time around.
The Wolf Among Us Season 2 is expected to launch sometime in the second half of 2018 for Mac, PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, as well as iOS and Android devices.
