In a statement released to Polygon, VP of Marketing Steve Allison talks about the first episode’s sales and how fans can expect more.
Our first episodic game series based on The Walking Dead has sold nearly 1.7 million episodes to consumers in just our first 8 weeks with no signs of slowing down. We have three more episodes to go with Episode 3 targeted for August as we confirmed yesterday.
“Following the digital release of our fifth episode we will also be coming to North American retail shortly thereafter and this will not be the last The Walking Dead game series that we do.
Telltale has also confirmed that following the digital release of all five episodes of The Walking Dead’s “first season,” the game will see a retail release — though this hasn’t been given a specific date.
The Walking Dead’s Episode Three will arrive to gamers in August.
