Telltale says episode two of The Wolf Among Us is coming and that the delays that held back its release shouldn’t happen again.
When the first episode of Telltale’s The Wolf Among Us was released back in October 2013, it was easily one of the month’s best treats. Building off of the mechanical foundation laid down by The Walking Dead: Season One, it delved into the world of Fables in a way that was both accessible for franchise newcomers and interesting for veterans of the acclaimed comic series.
That being the case, news about the game’s continued release became somewhat scant following the release of its initial episode. With the months dragging on Telltale did manage to make several other announcements about new games and partnerships, but failed to update gamers as to when The Wolf Among Us would be continuing. Now, Telltale has finally broken the silence and revealed that the game’s second episode will be coming next month in the first week of February.
Posting on its forums, Telltale also assured its customers that the multi-month wait between episode one and episode two would not be the norm for the rest of the series. “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),” said a Telltale staffer. “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.” That’s probably little solace for eager fans, especially after the cliffhanger at the end episode one. That said, we’re willing to give Telltale the benefit of the doubt and look forward to playing through episode two in a few short weeks.
