Love The Walking Dead? Well, then you will be pleased to know that Telltale has pretty much confirmed that they will be making more games in the series beyond the five episodes of the current game.
Senior Vice President of Marketing, Steve Allison, recently said; “Our first episodic game series based on The Walking Dead has sold nearly 1.7 million episodes to consumers in just our first 8 weeks with no signs of slowing down. We have three more episodes to go with Episode 3 targeted for August as we confirmed yesterday.”
He also went on, confirming that not only will the currently digital-only release be coming to retail, it will also not be the last Walking Dead game coming to us from Telltale Games.
“Following the digital release of our fifth episode we will also be coming to North American retail shortly thereafter and this will not be the last The Walking Dead game series that we do.”
I, personally, am very pleased to hear this. I am thoroughly enjoying Telltale’s episodic series, and would love to see more done in this style. Interestingly, Allison also commented on Activision’s upcoming Walking Dead FPS saying, “Telltale looking forward to seeing Terminal Reality’s [game’s developer] game when it comes out”.
