The lights are on
Telltale is returning in full force to the world of The Walking Dead this year. The studio is currently in the midst of the three-part Michonne miniseries, but there’s something more in store.
Speaking with Mashable, Telltale has confirmed that The Walking Dead Season 3 is in development and on the way. We learn more later this year, but the big news is that at least one episode will be out in 2016.
Because many players have upgraded or otherwise switched platforms, Telltale recognizes that it needs to improve its save porting. Choice is important in Telltale games, and having to replay earlier seasons on new platforms to get things just right is a bit of a drag.
Thankfully, a solution might be on the way. "We've got a strategy to help Season 3 players ... collect all their data from the previous games,” CEO Kevin Bruner told Mashable. “[W]e didn't have the cloud services in Season 1 that we have now. So we're going to have a solution for everybody that we're not talking about it yet."
Our TakeTelltale is working on improving its technology, which is music to my ears. With such enormous properties on the way, including Batman and unspecified Marvel project, and a faster cadence for episode releases, the studio seems to have found a great rhythm.
