According to the team, this delay comes as the result of a few fundamental changes that occurred at Telltale since it first announced the game last summer.
Wolf Among Us Season 2 was announced past year in July which was said to bring a brand new story due to release in 2018 which has now been officially postponed by Telltale games until 2019. "In addition to that, the statement also implied that the developer is taking time to "[explore] new ways to tell [its] stories", which implies that The Wolf Among Us 2 may be an attempt to break out of the company's design habits. The developer is now eyeing a 2019 release for the episodic video game.
The original 'The Wolf Among Us' game followed Digby as he tried to solve a murder and it allowed players to choose how he interacted with the various other characters in the game. As part of the delay announcement, Telltale also gave an update on how Season 2's development has been progressing.
Though the news of a delay might be disappointing, it will be interesting to see what kind of changes Telltale is bringing to the game. That's not going to happen, though, as Telltale has now officially confirmed that The Wolf Among Us 2 has been delayed to 2019.
As the long-awaited follow-up to one of their most acclaimed series, Telltale Games's upcoming season season of The Wolf Among Us is one that many fans are surely looking forward to, though unfortunately the wait will be just a little longer for the premiere. The Wolf Among Us' first season was a hit among fans and received scores in the 80s in most episodes on Metacritic too.
