More is planned within the universe of The Walking Dead
and TellTale Games' CEO, Dan Connors, has revealed that the team is trying to work out how to carry saves over from the first season. This would be similar to how events unfolded differently in the Mass Effect series based on your choices from previous games. It would be interesting to see how this is implemented as, depending on your choices, the fates of certain survivors weren't fully sealed. Who knows who we may run into in one form or another in the future. However, at the same time it is unlikely that the storyline would differ too much from playthrough to playthrough. However, Connors explained in an interview with Red Bull UK
that the concept is only being formed for Season 2, so it will be some time before we see more from the zombie-infested universe.
The Walking Dead, has sold over 8.5 million copies to date according to Connors in an interview with The Wall Street Journal
. He added that the iOS version of the game series was responsible for approximately 25% of the total revenue. The Walking Dead launched in April, but Connors revealed that November and December were the biggest months. The series received a variety of Game of the Year awards, was pushed at retail in North America, was included in a variety of sale promotions, and received constant praise from gamers who helped crown The Walking Dead as the highest rated game of 2012 on Metacritic.
TellTale Games is currently working with Warner Bros and DC Comics on an episodic game based on the Fables comic series from Bill Willingham. Outside of this, Connors mentioned other universes that the team would like to work with. Members of the team have experience with LucasArts, so Connors always felt that they could do a great Star Wars story game before adding that they would like to build a deeper story element for a great video game franchise such as Half-Life or Halo. TellTale Games is certainly ambitious and after its success with The Walking Dead Season 1, among others, we are looking forward to what it produces next.
