Telltale Games will release a second season of The Wolf Among Us: A Telltale Games Series, an adventure game based on the comic series Fable, in 2018. The developer revealed that the game was in the works as part of its summer 2017 update, embedded above.
Bigby Wolf, the hero of the first game, returns for the sequel. Expect to make more tough choices in the darkly tinged fairy tale world when it launches next year.
Fans of The Wolf Among Us’ first season have pelted Telltale with sequel requests since it wrapped three years ago. Telltale made light of this in the video update, highlighting tweets from fans begging for more from the world. As recently as this week, the studio denied any hint that a second season was in the works, throwing fans off their trail with some success.
In an Ask Me Anything session earlier this year, Telltale communications head Job Stauffer gave fans hope that The Wolf Among Us would return.
"We have been asked over and over again for some insight into the mystery at the end of the finale for [The Wolf Among Us],” Stauffer wrote. “Something I've always wanted to admit is that while we do have a clear answer to who was who at the end of that story... we had also agreed to keep it a mystery for the fans to ponder on their own. Definitely fun to see all of the theories pour out, and exciting to pay off our neon-noir story with a femme fatale twist.”
The conversation restarted this week, when Stauffer tweeted about his own wish to come back to the series.
“We'd KILL to step back into that world [of The Wolf Among Us] some day and we know our fans would too," Stauffer wrote on Twitter, just after saying, "Your voices and your passion will never go unheard here at [Telltale Games]."
Also on its way is Batman: The Enemy Within, a second season of Telltale’s Batman series, which debuted in August 2016. The first episode will launch Aug. 8 and features new villains like John Doe.
Telltale also teased The Walking Dead’s fourth and final season, which will complete Clementine’s story in 2018.
