The Wolf Among Us 2 is back in development, according to Telltale Games.
The news broke during The Game Awards 2019, with the short teaser trailer you see below. It’s a short one, but fans will undoubtedly love it.
The trailer shows we will once again step into the shoes of Bigby Wolf, aka The Big Bad Wolf of legend. We see him sitting in his apartment, with his back to the camera, as Snow White asks him to protect Fabletown from a mysterious new threat. It seems that Bigby might have to return to his Big Bad days to save the Fables.
The Wolf Among Us 2 was first announced in 2017, but since then, developer Telltale Games declared bankruptcy and closed its doors. Earlier this year, a company named LCG Entertainment bought Telltale’s name and IPs and brought the studio back from the dead.
Now, Telltale’s new iteration is working together with AdHoc Studios to co-develop the second season. AdHoc is a relatively new studio formed by former Telltale Games devs after the company closed down last year.
“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.”
The Telltale brand isn’t the only big name returning. Directors Nick Herman and Dennis Lenart, as well as writer Pierre Shorette and composer Jared Emerson-Johnson, all of whom worked on The Wolf Among Us, are coming back to work on the sequel.
And as you can clearly hear in the video, voice actors Adam Harrington and Erin Yvette are reprising their roles as Bigby Wolf and Snow White, respectively.
The Wolf Among Us 2 will be an Epic Games Store exclusive on PC, and will also be available on consoles.
