Bad news for fans of The Wolf Among Us. Telltale Games has confirmed it will not be showing any new look at the sequel to its cult hit adaptation of the Fable series at 2020’s Game Awards.
Telltale posted a message on Twitter to let fans know the company plans on taking more time on the series, saying they are developing the entire season at once.
“We know you’re excited to hear more about TWUA2 [sic],” Telltale wrote. “And we look forward to telling you more when the time is right. What we can say is that we are developing the entire season at once and there is more to do before we’re ready to share what’s next for the Fabletown gang. It’s just not time yet.
Telltale also reiterated that the rights to some of the properties they previously developed games for have reverted back to their original owners, and “their fate is not currently in our hands.”
“For now, think of us as fans — just like you!” Telltale’s statement continued. “We are a team dedicated to the Telltale legacy for narrative games, here to celebrate the classics with an eye on what’s to come. And trust us, when the time is right, we’re going to have a LOT to talk about.”
The Wolf Among Us 2 Reveal Screens
The Wolf Among Us 2 has had something of a tumultuous development history, to put it lightly. The sequel series has actually been announced at the Game Awards twice now — once in 2017, which was then followed by Telltale Games being shut down in 2018 due to longrunning management issues, crunch, and creative meddling. That was then followed by Telltale Games being purchased by Malibu-based LCG Entertainment and revived as a new brand, although no creative leads or game designers from the original team have returned.
The Wolf Among Us 2 was then finally announced again at the 2019 Game Awards for consoles and an Epic Games Store PC exclusive.
Sad news for fans of gritty detective noir starring talking pigs, but the 2020 Game Awards are sure to feature some high-profile game reveals. Here’s how to watch the Game Awards today. Famous stars like Keanu Reeves, Brie Larson, Tom Holland, and others are scheduled to appear. We also know that a new Super Smash Bros. Ultimate fighter reveal is coming, plus a first look at Call of Duty: Black Ops Warzone season one, and a look at the next Dragon Age, and more. Click the link above for more info.
