The Wolf Among Us was released by Telltale Games in 2013 to positive reviews. Fans have since been waiting for the sequel which the developer has already confirmed to be in development. The sequel was originally announced in July last year and Telltale was aiming for a launch in late 2018. That’s not going to happen, though, as Telltale has now officially confirmed that The Wolf Among Us 2 has been delayed to 2019.
The developer mentioned in its blog post that the game is now going to launch in 2019 because of a new “fundamental changes” at Telltale since the game was announced in July last year.
The changes it’s referring to are likely the employee layoffs late last year, Telltale laid off almost a quarter of its staff in a restructuring effort. It also mentions that taking this extra time for The Wolf Among Us 2 is going to allow Telltale to “not only to focus on quality but also to experiment and iterate in order to craft something truly special.”
It reiterates that the goal remains to deliver an experience that’s in line with the passion the fans have shown for The Wolf Among Us so these extra months will help Telltale do its best work.
The developer hasn’t provided a confirm release date as yet, though, so it’s unclear right now when we can expect The Wolf Among Us 2 to arrive next year.
