Many things were announced and revealed at the Game Awards this year, with some of the revelations being massive and the others just being news about upcoming games. One great piece of news that some people might have missed out on or forgotten about under the shadow of the Xbox Series X is the revival of The Wolf Among Us series. LCG Entertainment, which relaunched Telltale Games earlier in 2019, revealed a teaser trailer of the sequel during a press release. Of course, we don’t actually know much of anything about the sequel at all. All we know is that it is being developed for both PC and consoles, and that it will be an Epic Games exclusive. Other than that, we know nothing; no details about the plot, no timeline on whether or not it will always be an Epic Games exclusive, not even a potential release date. That said, that lack of detail doesn’t change the fact that the revival of the franchise is a quintessential miracle: considering how Telltale Games closed down last year, many fans believed The Wolf Among Us was doomed to remain a singular title that would never be touched again.
