The Wolf Among Us 2 isn't coming until 2024 so Crunch doesn't stand a chance

Do you still remember the “hot” phase of Telltale adventures that was started by The Walking Dead in 2012? The episode game may not have been a great success in terms of gameplay, but the adventure of Clementine and Lee, with all the difficult decisions, was told all the more vividly. From then on, several of the interactive stories from Telltale followed every year, for all sorts of well-known franchises such as Borderlands, Game of Thrones, Minecraft, Marvel (Guardians of the Galaxy) and DC (Batman) – until the studio had to be closed in 2018.

However, one of the best Telltale games of this period was based on Bill Willingham’s comic book Fables, which previously probably only enthusiasts knew about.

Then, in August 2019, Telltale Games was revived. The year’s Game Awards was followed by the announcement of the first project: The Wolf Among Us 2 (Telltale is also working in parallel with Deck Nine Games on The Expanse: A Telltale Series). The release year is 2023. But now we know that nothing will come of it. Via Twitter and with a Interviewed by IGN the developers announced that the adventure will be released in 2024 at the earliest.

The reason for the postponement: You want to take the chance to bring the game from Unreal Engine 4 to the new Unreal Engine 5. Above all, the team’s engineers and artists are convinced that the new features of the more modern engine are worth the effort. However, the switch means a lot of extra work, because some things that were already done in Unreal Engine 4 now have to be redone.
