The next episode of The Walking Dead will be available “in the middle of August,” it has been revealed.
Posting on their blog, Telltale Games apologised for releasing episode two of The Walking Dead later than planned, saying: “We want to thank everyone for their patience with regard to the launch of episode two of The Walking Dead. As you may know, it arrived later than anticipated and this has been a cause of frustration for everyone.”
The apology continued: “Our goal from day one has been to deliver your game episodes as quickly as possible, and where we can, simultaneously across all platforms and regions. We've been working closely with our phenomenally supportive partners to try to make this a reality.
"We will continue to work on this and furthermore, we will strive to improve our communication with you so that you know what’s happening. Please rest assured that we are doing all we can to get your game episodes to you as quickly as possible.”
Finally, Telltale Games, who have previously worked on episodic games for Wallace and Gromit, said: “For many of you, the most important thing is to let you know when the next episode (Episode 3: Long Road Ahead) will be available, and although we can't give you an exact date at this time, we can say that episode three will be ready in the middle of August, and that we and our partners will do all that we can to release all platforms and regions as close together as possible.”
Five episodes in total will be released for The Walking Dead, a downloadable adventure game based on the comic book series of the same name. The third episode will be released next month.
