Telltale Games has announced that The Walking Dead: The Game will receive at least one more season. The company confirmed that the first season of its episodic game based on Robert Kirkman’s hit comic series will have a retail release, and announced its plans for future series.
“Our first episodic game series based on The Walking Dead has sold nearly 1.7 million episodes to consumers in just our first eight weeks with no signs of slowing down,” Steve Allison, senior vice president of marketing for Telltale, told The Verge.
Allison said Telltale will release three more episodes with Episode 3 targeted for August. He added that following the digital release of the fifth episode, the game will be coming to North American retail.
“…this will not be the last The Walking Dead game series that we do,” Allison said.
Gamers can look forward to yet another Walking Dead title, as Activision announced last week that it is working on its own game based on the comic series. It will be a first-person shooter set within the zombie series’ universe.
Walking Dead: Episode 3 – Long Road Ahead will be released in August.
