The Walking Dead season 3, the latest season of Telltale Games’s critically acclaimed series The Walking Dead, might have been delayed until February of 2017, possibly adding the season to a very busy month of other games. The information comes from a German Amazon leak, which put the release date at February.
If it does come out in February of next year, The Walking Dead season 3 will be coming out alongside two other highly-anticipated games in the West: For Honor, Ubisoft Montreal’s team-based medieval combat game, and Persona 5, the latest in Atlus’s dungeon-crawling role-playing game, which has already become Atlus’s best-selling game in Japan.
The Walking Dead Season 3 will likely continue to focus around Clementine, the protagonist of Season 2 and major character of Season 1. While the game did have a brief break in the Michonne series that came out earlier this year, we’ll likely be returning to a more familiar face.
Whether the new season is actually delayed or not will be the start of another busy year for Telltale, after the studio finished its Game of Thrones series, Minecraft Story Mode series, and Tales from the Borderlands series over the past year to a variety of different receptions from gamers and critics. Telltale also recently started a Batman game, which released its second episode several weeks ago.
It’s possible that Telltale is only delaying the physical release of The Walking Dead to next February, as they did the same with Batman (releasing it digitally in one month and releasing it physically at a different point in time).
Regardless of when the new season comes out, it will be available on the Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC, much like Telltale’s other games. In the meantime, we’ll just have to wait and see if an official statement from Telltale will come out and confirm whether or not the game is actually delayed.
