Huge Telltale Games Update Drops Before SDCC


Getting the San Diego Comic Con news started right, Telltale games has made three comic related announcements regarding their upcoming projects.

First up, the second season of their recent Batman series titled “The Enemy Within” will be five parts, and the first of them will drop August 8th.

Next, arguably their most popular series based on Robert Kirkman’s The Walking Dead will see its fourth and final season debut in 2018. “It’s going to be an amazing experience. Thank you all so much, from the bottom of my heart,” said Melissa Hutchison, the award-winning actress who has been the voice of ‘Clementine’ since 2012. “It’s been a lot of blood, sweat, and tears, and so much love has been behind this whole experience. Good luck, I’ll be right there with you.”

Lastly, a big shocker here, the cult classic Wolf Among Us will see a second season in 2018 as well. Based on the hit Vertigo comic Fables, the first season was released in 2013. Since little had been said about a follow-up, fans had given up hope until now.

Stay tuned for more details about these releases and more as we get closer to release date. Check out the announcement video below!
