Expect the 'unexpected' this time around

The third season of Telltale Games' The Walking Dead series will arrive later this year, according to the developer. CEO Kevin Bruner nailed down the release window in an interview with Mashable, during which he hinted at what to expect from the next entry in the choice-driven, episodic adventure series.

The interview is light on details, but Bruner said that the goal of Season 3 is to bring in new fans to the series. How this affects the storyline — which, based on the ending(s) of Season 2, might be hard to keep following — is still anyone's guess, although Bruner said it will take an "unexpected" turn.

More details are expected out of this year's San-Diego Comic-Con, according to Bruner.

The Walking Dead's second season finished back in 2014. In 2015, the studio confirmed it wouldn't release a follow-up that year, instead focusing on other titles. Telltale has kept busy since then with games like Minecraft: Story Mode and a three-part miniseries focused on Michonne, a character from Robert Kirkman's The Walking Dead comic book series.
