Telltale Games made the announcement at Comic-Con this weekend, delighting fans of the series, which has sold more than 28 million ‘episodes’ to date. Word of the renewal comes while the second season of the game is still ongoing. (Because of its episodic format, each story is referred to a season, rather than chapter or some other term.)
Last year, Telltale Games gifted gamers with The Walking Dead, a deeply emotional episodic adventure game that offered a breath of fresh air for the video game industry, capturing “Game of the Year” honors from a host of publications – including us.
Unfortunately, a much different Walking Dead game shambled into stores this week, and the only air surrounding it is the rot of decay.
