The Wolf Among Us 2 is back in development

Telltale Games’ The Wolf Among Us 2 is back in development, having been shelved when Telltale Games closed in 2018.

That is according to LCG Entertainment, who bought up the Telltale brand and all of its assets following the original studios closure. Announced at The Game Awards 2019, The Wolf Among Us 2 is being developed by AdHoc Studio, a new “interactive narrative” company made up of former Telltale Games employees, which is based in Los Angeles, California. A number of developers who worked on the original The Wolf Among Us are involved, including writer Pierre Shorette, directors Nick Herman and Dennis Lenart, and composer Jared Emerson-Johnson. Voice actors Adam Harrington and Erin Yvette are also on board. Want a trailer which gives away absolutely nothing? No problem.

Originally released in episodic format between October 2013 and July 2014, The Wolf Among Us is a “gritty, violent and mature thriller based on the award-winning Fables comic books by DC Comics/Vertigo”. The game was well received, picking up numerous award nominations and being praised for its story, atmosphere, and visuals. Speaking on the sequel, LCG Entertainment CEO Jamie Ottilie said:

“The Wolf Among Us is one of the most beloved titles in the Telltale catalog, so we are thrilled to announce that development on Wolf 2 has again started and assure all of the series’ fans that it is in good hands. Partnering with AdHoc Studio enables us to work with many of the key creative and development talent from the original Wolf series while strategically growing the new Telltale.”

The Wolf Among Us 2 is coming to PC via the Epic Games Store and consoles, although which exact platforms hasn’t been announced yet, and we also don’t have a release date as of yet. As always, we’ll keep you updated as and when that information becomes available.
