It was very much expected, and there’s certainly a demand for it, so it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that Telltale Games’ The Walking Dead is now confirmed to continue into a third season. The confirmation came during The Walking Dead panel at San Diego Comic Con this weekend, with Telltale tweeting the world to let us know it’s really happening.

Telltale Games has already confirmed new game series’ are in development, as well as The Walking Dead. The Wolf Among Us Season One just came to end and there’s likely to be more to come in the future. Tales From The Borderlands, a Telltale series based in the Borderlands game universe, is also in development. Further to those three series’, Telltale Games are also working on an episodic side story based in the Game Of Thrones series, based on the George R R Martin book A Song Of Fire And Ice.

The Walking Dead games have received critical acclaim, picking up a whole stack of awards including Game Of The Year awards along the way, releasing on the Vita, PS3, Xbox 360, PC, iOS and Android with the early series collection looking set to jump into next-gen consoles and arrive for the PS4 and Xbox One.

The Comic Con panel, which featured The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman and Telltale Games president Kevin Bruner, didn’t let slip any other details about the next season. Clementine could continue her adventures or we could see the series move in a different direction entirely with new characters, locations and stories to uncover.

    Although I love the Walking Dead (TV Series and the game) it still kinda sucks that the game itself contains so much slow downs and short freezes…

    • Karl Smith

      Especially when Season 2 on Vita has this annoying border during cutscenes.

    • James Gough

      I gave up on the comic at the All Out War arc, and the TV show after a few epsiodes watching the mess they made of Andrea’s character … this is all I have left for The Walking Dead so I hope it gets better or at least stays as good!

    Hell to the yes, can’t wait!
