Writer Teases Something New For Walking Dead

Telltale Games' interpretation of The Walking Dead was kind of a big deal last year, scooping up dozens of game-of-the-year awards. Thanks to that success, Telltale has revealed that another series of the episodic game is on the way. Meanwhile, the wait may not be as bad as you may think.

According to Walking Dead writer and consultant Gary Whitta, Telltale has a little something in the works that may bridge the gap between episode five of the first season and the start of season two. Whitta revealed the info on IGN's Up at Noon show, saying "I can tell you what you already know, which is season two is coming. There’s not much to say because it really is very early…it’s a way off. But, knowing that it’s a way off, and knowing that people are hungry for more Walking Dead…there may very well be more Walking Dead from Telltale before season two."

He clearly refers to it a bit later as something that's played, which rules out a passive solution like a digital comic. Whitta and Telltale Games' founder Dan Connors are hosting a panel on game writing during SXSW Interactive, which is held from March 8-12. We could be learning more about whatever Whitta is talking about at that event.
