Last November, Telltale Games announced the reduction of its workforce, separating 25% of its employees. As a result of this restructuring, The Wolf Among Us 2 has been postponed to 2019.
It is the developers themselves who have announced the news via the publication of a press release on the Telltale website:
We’re here with some news: The Wolf Among Us 2, based on Bill Willingham’s award-winning Fables comic book series from DC’s Vertigo imprint, will now launch in 2019, rather than the latter half of 2018. This delay comes as the result of a few fundamental changes here at Telltale since we first announced the game last summer.
Most importantly, we’re committed to exploring new ways to tell our stories. Taking this extra time will allow us not only to focus on quality but also to experiment and iterate in order to craft something truly special.
The studio also mentioned more “news” by the end of the year to give us more details on the new direction the game has taken.
The Wolf Among Us 2 will be released in 2019 on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Mac, iOS, and Android.
