LCG Entertainment, doing business as
Telltale, today confirmed that The Wolf Among Us 2
is again in development. Telltale has partnered with AdHoc Studio, a creative
house formed by former Telltale Games employees and focused on interactive
narrative, to resume work on and co-develop the second season of the
award-winning The Wolf Among Us series.
In August of this year, 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 games based on the company’s popular licensed IPs. 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 title was revealed tonight
during the telecast of The Game Awards. 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 popular 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, CEO of LCG
Entertainment/Telltale. “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 Game’s former VP of Engineering, Zac Litton, has joined
the new Telltale team as CTO.
“When the opportunity came up, it was an
easy decision for us.” said Pierre Shorette, CCO of AdHoc Studio. “Developing The Wolf Among Us was my first
project at Telltale and the start of a creative partnership with Nick and
Dennis, so obviously we’re excited to further explore the Fables universe.”
Based on Bill Willingham’s Fables comic book series from DC, The Wolf Among Us is a five-episode prequel, 20 years prior to the events of the comic books. The series features various characters from fairy tales and folklore, known as Fables, who inhabit a clandestine community within New York City known as Fabletown. Having won critical acclaim and nominations for BAFTA and D.I.C.E. Awards, as well as garnering awards for Game Direction and some of the performances, The Wolf Among Us has amassed a significant fan following and anticipation for a second season.
