One of Telltale's Best Games, The Wolf Among Us, Probably Won't Get a Sequel Soon [Update]

One of Telltale's Best Games, The Wolf Among Us, Probably Won't Get a Sequel Soon [Update]

No announcement at San Diego Comic-Con it seems.

Update: Looks like we got the wool pulled over us. The Wolf Among Us Season 2 and a bunch of other projects were announced as part of Teltlale's Summer 2017 update. Read more about it here.

San Diego Comic-Con is fast approaching, and with it came rumors that Telltale could release a long-awaited second season of The Wolf Among Us. That is until Telltale effectively put an end to those rumors with a statement the company released yesterday.

"I worry about people getting their hopes up in the wrong direction," wrote Telltale's communications head Job Stauffer said on Twitter.

Here's how it went down: over the weekend, Telltale tweeted out an announcement that the company will be delivering a Summer 2017 update at San Diego Comic-Con. That tweet was then retweeted by voice actor Adam Harrington, who voiced Bigby Wolf in the first season of The Wolf Among Us. Naturally, fans took this as a winking nod to a second season of Telltale's adaptation of the long-running Vertigoi comic book series, Fables.

However, Harrington actually voices a bunch of characters across Telltale's many games including starring turns in Telltale's Minecraft: Story Mode, Tales from the Borderlands, Guardians of the Galaxy, a fact Stauffer wrote on Twitter. "Adam also voices Groot in our GotG. ;)"

In short, the Telltale announcement is probably related to Guardians of the Galaxy or the new Telltale Batman DLC that was leaked on NeoGAF (or both). As far as a second season of The Wolf Among Us goes however, Stauffer writes:

"We'd KILL to step back into the world [of The Wolf Among Us] some day and we know our fans would too... Your voices and your passion will never go unheard here at TTG."

As for Tales from the Borderlands Stauffer writes, "As we've said before, we LOVE that project with all of our hearts... But the next entry in the Borderlands story will be from Gearbox Software."

Both The Wolf Among Us and Tales from the Borderlands rank as my favorite games from Telltale. The first was a pitch perfect adaptation of Fables, with a healthy dose of noir, while Tales from the Borderlands distilled the best of Gearbox's zany Tarantino space western. It's a shame that neither will have a sequel in the near future.
