Episode 2 of Telltale Games' The Wolf Among Us, titled Smoke and Mirrors, will release in the first week of February, Telltale Games confirmed today.
It's been three months since the debut of The Wolf Among Us, which is based on Bill Willingham's Fables comic book series.Telltale acknowledged that it's "been a struggle" getting this episode out "for a variety of reasons," but they didn't go into further detail. Normally, the developer has a rather quick turnaround time for new episodes, but this one was unusually long. Here's what they had to say about the whole thing.
Ep 2 should be available the first week of February. We are working hard with all of our partners (Xbox, PlayStation, Steam, Apple) to coordinate everything, but we’re confident enough to announce that here. The episode is looking really good (as is the rest of the season!). We are very concerned about the long delay for this episode, but this is one of those occasions where several things conspired against us (not to mention the additional delays due to the holidays). I won't dive into the details, but it’s been an unusual and specific set of circumstances and we do not anticipate it happening again as we go forward with the rest of the season.
There you have it, folks. First week of February. We'll be sure to keep you updated as they confirm specifics. That should give ample time for people to play Episode One if they haven't yet done so. Check out GameZone's review here.
