Telltale Games Confirms ‘The Walking Dead’ Sequel and ‘Fables’ Video Game for Upcoming Releases
TellTale Games, the developers behind the popular Monkey Island and Sam and Max episodic adventure games, recently confirmed that they were starting work on a sequel to their recent The Walking Dead video game, based on the comic series created by writer Robert Kirkman and artists Tony Moore and Charlie Adlard. Additionally, TellTale Games CEO and co-founder Dan Connors emphasized that the long-postponed Fables game, adapting the similarly popular comic series created by Bill Willingham, was still in production, even if the final product might not be called “Fables” at all.In an interview with IGN, Dan Connors reiterated the pride he had in The Walking Dead‘s success, saying that “We’re going to continue to work on it. It’s a rich world for what we’re trying to do. We still have a lot of ideas to explore in that world.”
With regards to the Fables game, Connors said that although they were continuing to work on it, the name of the final product might not match what fans would expect.
“We won’t be using the name Fables. We’re based on the property, but we’ll have a new name. We haven’t announced it yet. We’re still hammering it out. We want to make sure that people know it’s associated with the DC comic and Bill’s work and everything else. It’s delicate. But it won’t be called Fables.
With Fables, or the game associated with the comic Fables, it kind of… Walking Dead has had a huge impact on the company as far as how we look at things and how we do what we do. We’re taking a lot of what we learned from that and making sure that Fables can execute on the same things. That’s taking longer. But we’re definitely in full production on it. We’re working hard. It’s coming together really well. We’ll probably have more to talk about on it pretty soon, with a name and everything else, in the near future.”
As of yet, neither game has an official release date, but you can expect more details sometime in the coming months.
