Queue up the “it’s been 84 years” jokes, folks, because the long-awaited second episode of Telltale Games’ The Wolf Among Us now has an official release date of… the first week of February. Yeah, it’s still pretty vague, but at least now we have a time frame!
Telltale Games’ Kevin Bruner commented first on community forums, explaining,
“It’s been a struggle to get this episode out, for a variety of reasons, but it’s finally ready to go, and you heard it here first! …
Ep 2 should be available the first week of February. We are working hard with all of our partners (Xbox, PlayStation, Steam, Apple) to coordinate everything, but we’re confident enough to announce that here. The episode is looking really good (as is the rest of the season!). We are very concerned about the long delay for this episode, but this is one of those occasions where several things conspired against us (not to mention the additional delays due to the holidays). I won’t dive into the details, but it’s been an unusual and specific set of circumstances and we do not anticipate it happening again as we go forward with the rest of the season.
So there you have it. First week of February!”
Fingers crossed that’s closer to February 1 than February 7, because my god, it’s been 84 years.
