Sometimes the silence can be deafening. For example, that of The Wolf Among Us 2, of which we have hardly heard after its announcement, back in The Game Awards 2019. There have been more than two years without knowing the title And, aware of the suspicions and suspicions raised, Telltale Games came out a few weeks ago to thank the support, apologize for the wait and give explanations. The developer promised that we would learn more about the status of the project in the January issue of Game Informer, than we have now been offered. a first preview.
The details come thanks to Shinobi62, a regular source in the industry and one of the lucky ones who has already been able to see what this will be like back to Fabletown and to the universe of Bill Willingham. Confirmed his information by Telltale herself, Shinobi62 tells us that the game will be placed 6 months after the original (released in 2013 and with a final cliffhanger that has kept us on our toes ever since), unfolds and sets throughout a winter in new york and it is in full production phase. It also confirms that the script has been finalized and that the capture of movements is already underway, as well as that this time the game will use the Unreal Engine, a change of engine has allowed to optimize the graphics like never before in the works of the study.
Will it be a game by chapters?
The data is more technical than anything else, but it is appreciated after such radio silence and it also seems to anticipate that the development problems have been solved (it even restarted from scratch) and perhaps we will even see it. Sooner than later. By way of curiosity, this The Wolf Among Us 2 it will be the first game of “the new Telltale” and will put its new publishing philosophy in motion. Your games will remain episodic, yes, but the different chapters will not start to launch until they are all finished, thus avoiding the waits of almost a year that until now we were subjected between the beginning and the end of each season. Who knows, maybe this time there will be a happy ending and all for the Big Bad Wolf.
