Bigby and Snow are finally back for the long awaited second season of Telltale’s The Wolf Among Us, based on the popular DC Fables comic series.
The Wolf Among Us 2’s development was interrupted when Telltale Games ran out of money and shut down in 2018.
In August, Malibu, California-based LCG Entertainment completed its purchase of the Telltale Games brand, assets, and technology with the intent to revive the original company’s back catalog of games and to develop new works based on the company’s popular licensed intellectual properties.
The Wolf Among Us 2 is the first new game to be announced since the purchase and is licensed by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment on behalf of DC. The game will initially be released for PC as an Epic Games Store exclusive, and on consoles.
The Wolf Among Us is one of the most beloved titles in the Telltale catalog, so we are thrilled to announce that development on Wolf 2 has again started and assure all of the series’ fans that it is in good hands,” said Jamie Ottilie, the CEO of LCG Entertainment/Telltale, in a statement. “Partnering with AdHoc Studio enables us to work with many of the key creative and development talent from the original Wolf series while strategically growing the new Telltale.”
Returning to work on The Wolf Among Us 2 via AdHoc are directors Nick Herman and Dennis Lenart, along with writer Pierre Shorette. Also returning are the award-winning voice actors, Adam Harrington as Bigby Wolf, and Erin Yvette as Snow White and composer Jared Emerson-Johnson. Additionally, Telltale Games’ former vice president of engineering, Zac Litton, has joined the new Telltale team as chief technology officer.
The Wolf Among Us 2 storyline comes after the events of the first, but it is still a prequel to the events of DC’s (Vertigo) Fables graphic novels.
The story will be told in episodes but how it is released is still being determined. The game is in preproduction and does not yet have a launch date.
The Wolf Among Us 2 is being built using the Unreal Engine. To celebrate, the first Wolf Among Us will be free on the Epic Game Store from December 12 to December 19.
