Telltale Games' The Walking Dead episodic video game is coming back for a third season, Telltale president Kevin Bruner and The Walking Dead comic creator Robert Kirkman confirmed at San Diego Comic-Con today. Release date and story details on The Walking Dead Season 3 weren't divulged, but considering that the game's second season is still incomplete, it's unlikely we'll see it anytime soon. Telltale Games also has Game of Thrones and Tales from the Borderlands on its plate. The Walking Dead Season 2's fourth episode, "Amid the Ruins," was released earlier this week. Read our review of the season's penultimate chapter here.
