Wolf Among Us 2 delayed until 2019

The Wolf Among Us 2 was announced many months ago, and was previously scheduled to release in 2018. Unfortunately, it looks like a lot of changes are taking place at Telltale Games and now the game will launch in 2019. No new release date or release window was provided.

The studio explained the delay in a short post on its website. It seems like the title needs more polishing to the developer is taking a few more months to make it better on every front.

The Wolf Among Us 2... 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.

Hopefully The Wolf Among Us 2 will be a worthy experience when it launches next year. If you haven't played the first game, be sure to check it out at retailers. It's regarded by many as a modern cult classic.

  • I wasn't expecting much, but the original TWAU was really good, well written, very interesting and lots of fun.
  • Yep. Liked it a lot.
  • "Most importantly, we're committed to exploring new ways to tell our stories." Translation: We played "The Council" and that game makes us look bad.
  • That's actually accurate. That game is incredible! I usually can't get into Telltale Games but I've played both episodes of The Council and loved them.
  • Telltale Games delaying a game gives me the feeling that they will stop releasing fast games but actually make time to make it a bug-free, compelling experience. So let's hope this story will be a great one. And I actually liked every telltale game until now (except maybe the one about Game of Thrones). Just think they could do a better job to make it bug-free and more visually attractive.
