Almost a year ago, Telltale announced that The Wolf Among Us, a series based on the Fables comics by Bill Willingham, was finally getting a second season. Many fans, including myself, were overjoyed. Unfortunately, it looks like we’ll be waiting a little bit longer to step back into the shoes of the Big Bad Wolf. Telltale has just confirmed today that The Wolf Among Us Season 2 Has Been Delayed into 2019.
Here’s what Telltale had to say about how The Wolf Among Us Season 2 has been delayed:
We’re here with some news: The Wolf Among Us 2, based on Bill Willingham’s award-winning Fables comic book series from DC’s Vertigo imprint, will now launch in 2019, rather than the latter half of 2018. This delay comes as the result of a few fundamental changes here at Telltale since we first announced the game last summer.
Most importantly, we’re committed to exploring new ways to tell our stories. Taking this extra time will allow us not only to focus on quality but also to experiment and iterate in order to craft something truly special.
Ultimately our goal is to deliver an experience deserving of the passion you’ve consistently shown for The Wolf Among Us, and these extra months will give us the time we need to do our best work. We’re extremely enthusiastic about how the game is progressing so far, and we can’t wait to dig even deeper.
Still, we know we’ve just made a long wait even longer, which is why we sincerely appreciate your patience. We’ll have more Wolf news for you later this year, and for now, you can follow us on Twitter and Facebook to ensure you’re always up to date. Thanks…and see you around.
This is definitely disappointing news. With that said, at the end of the day it’s best that the game be delayed for quality purposes than come out and not meet fans expectations. Since they say we’ll learn more information later this year, maybe we’ll get a teaser trailer of some sort in the months to come.
