Telltale is getting ready to launch season 2 of its successful episodic point-and-click adventure game series – The Walking Dead. The company has released a short 6-second video on Vine that teases season 2 of the game. The video is dubbed Day 2 and shows nothing more than pictures of a couple of characters, and the picture of one particular character – named Vince – being pinned to a board. We can only guess that Vince will be the focus of season 2.
Other than the Vine video, there has been no word from Telltale Games since it announced the autumn release window for season 2 of The Walking Dead back in March. The release date lends credence to the rumours that the next season will be making its way to the next-gen consoles along with the present-gen ones. It helps that Telltale has the habit of releasing its games on multiple platforms without too many porting issues.
Back in February, writer Gary Whitta had revealed that Telltale may have some more Walking Dead content planned before the release of season 2. "You won't have to wait for season two to play more Walking Dead," he had said.
"I can tell you what you already know, which is season two is coming. There’s not much to say because it really is very early…it’s a way off," said Whitta. "But, knowing that it’s a way off, and knowing that people are hungry for more Walking Dead…there may very well be more Walking Dead from Telltale before season two. We may have a little something extra for you between season one and two. That will make the wait for season two slightly less agonizing.”
Although this is great news for fans of the award-winning game, Telltale is not limiting itself to one franchise. Back in January, Connors had said he'd like the studio to work on large-scale projects. He cited Half-Life and Star Wars as examples. “Coming from LucasArts, we always felt we could do a great Star Wars story game,” he said. “We also love the idea of building out a deeper story to a great game franchise—something like Half-Life stories or Halo stories.”
