Wolf Among Us: Season 2 delayed to 2019 to further innovate gameplay
News Post: The Wolf Among Us 2 Coming in 2019
We’re here with some news: The Wolf Among Us 2, based on Bill Willingham’s award-winning Fables comic book series from DC’s Vertigo imprint, will now launch in 2019, rather than the latter half of 2018. This delay comes as the result of a few fundamental changes here at Telltale since we first announced the game last summer.
Most importantly, we're committed to exploring new ways to tell our stories. Taking this extra time will allow us not only to focus on quality but also to experiment and iterate in order to craft something truly special.
Ultimately our goal is to deliver an experience deserving of the passion you’ve consistently shown for The Wolf Among Us, and these extra months will give us the time we need to do our best work. We’re extremely enthusiastic about how the game is progressing so far, and we can’t wait to dig even deeper.
Still, we know we’ve just made a long wait even longer, which is why we sincerely appreciate your patience. We’ll have more Wolf news for you later this year, and for now, you can follow us on Twitter and Facebook to ensure you’re always up to date. Thanks...and see you around.

Tweet from Bill Willingham ('Fables' series creator): I had my first unofficial meeting with one of the writers of Telltale’s Wolf Among Us 2 (which probably won’t be called that) today at C2E2.
Tweet from Bill Willingham ('Fables' series creator): The probable story makes me giddy. But no hints will be forthcoming. My lips are sealed and my keyboard is frozen.

- "We're thrilled to be able to do a second season. Living up to expectations - we have on our plate - so I can say it'll be in the second half of 2018, after seeing the final Walking Dead season in the first half."
