Telltale Games is back and better than ever before as the team hints at new projects for 2022 and shares some information about The Wolf Among Us 2’s development in an end-of-the-year update. On Dec. 21, Telltale Games released an update on Twitter and their website that covered a bit of the game studio’s rebirth, current partnership, and plans for the future. Telltale reminded fans of their improvement as a new studio, where they stated that they’re “doing things different this time.” If you recall Telltale Games’ difficulties in the past, you might remember that the original Telltale Game studio officially closed in 2018. Telltale Games was later revived and renewed after LCG Entertainment took over the game studio in 2019. Due to new management, Telltale Games has been developing games using Unreal Engine and re-releasing previous games that they currently hold the rights to.
END OF 2021 UPDATE:
It’s been a busy year and things are only going to get more exciting from here. Thanks for being with us on this adventure so far – and we can’t wait for what’s next.
Have a happy, healthy rest of the holiday season and see all you folks in 2022! pic.twitter.com/D7vzArpfBN

In the update, Telltale shared their enthusiasm to work harder as a new studio regarding their current projects and future plans. They currently have a partnership with Deck Nine Games on The Expanse: A Telltale Series that was first revealed during the 2021 Game Awards. They also told fans that they plan to continue developing The Wolf Among Us 2, which was delayed for release in 2018 but later announced to be in pre-production during the 2019 Game Awards.
The Telltale team also shared that some news regarding The Wolf Among Us 2 will be included in this month’s issue of Game Informer, and some information about the game has already been shared on Twitter. The Wolf Among Us 2 will take place six months after the events that occurred in the original game. The story will happen during winter and span across different locations within New York. The game is also in full production, with the script finished and mocap underway. The Wolf Among Us 2 will use Unreal Engine, which Telltale has mentioned in their update. The game will be released in episodes, but Telltale plans to release new episodes every few weeks instead of releasing every few months.
