Sad news for Fables fans today, as Telltale Games revealed that the second season of its critically acclaimed series The Wolf Among Us will be delayed and pushed back to 2019. The company posted a small blog entry letting fans know the details. Here’s a snippet from the post.
This delay comes as the result of a few fundamental changes here at Telltale since we first announced the game last summer.
Most importantly, we’re committed to exploring new ways to tell our stories. Taking this extra time will allow us not only to focus on quality but also to experiment and iterate in order to craft something truly special.
Ultimately our goal is to deliver an experience deserving of the passion you’ve consistently shown for The Wolf Among Us, and these extra months will give us the time we need to do our best work. We’re extremely enthusiastic about how the game is progressing so far, and we can’t wait to dig even deeper.
It kind of sucks, but it also kind of makes sense. After their version of Guardians of the Galaxy was finished in November, the company let go of 25% of their staff. That had to do some damage at some level with games that were in production, so it only stands to reason that the loss of staff would put a few delays in The Wolf Among Us.
