- ‘The Wolf Among Us 2’ is set six months after the first film’s events and takes place in New York City during the winter.
- Telltale Games has remained silent on their highly anticipated sequel to The Wolf Among Us since its announcement at The Game Awards 2019.
However, while many assumed that the project had been shelved yet again, a new feature on Game Informer provides some inside information on the subject.
The sequel, like the first, will take place before the events of the ‘Fables’ graphic novels, with the story taking place six months after the original. The game is now in total production, with the script now completed, and it is expected to feature a winter setting, with snow falling all over New York City.
As a “newly formed” company, Telltale will abandon its outdated engine, which was riddled with visual bugs, and will instead use Epic Games’ Unreal Engine. This would result in minor changes to the game’s iconic point-and-click mechanic and the introduction of motion capture for more interactive actions.
‘The Wolf Among Us 2′ is a direct sequel to the original and will be released in the series’ trademark episodic format. However, unlike “old” Telltale, the episodes will only be released once the game has completed development, so players will not have to wait months for the next one. The team is considering a release strategy that would allow for a few weeks between episodes.
Telltale was known for creating great story-driven games such as The Walking Dead series, the first of which won several Game of the Year awards in 2012.
They also rehired some of the original title’s lead writers, developers, creative/game directors, and composers as part of the process. In addition, award-winning voice actors Adam Harrington and Erin Yvette return to bring the beloved main characters from the DC/Vertigo comics franchise Bigby Wolf and Snow White – to life.
Because The Wolf Among Us 2 has only recently begun production, we can expect it to be released in late 2022 or early 2023. In collaboration with Nine Deck Games, the company recently released a trailer for their upcoming game based on the TV show ‘The Expanse.’
