Telltale’s The Walking Dead to go beyond current season

The current five episode season of Telltale’s The Walking Dead won’t be the last, the studio has said. Plus, a retail release of the first season is in the cards as well.

Says senior vice president of marketing Steve Allison: “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.”

No word on a possible Euro release yet.

The third episode will be released digitally in August as announced just earlier in the week.

Publisher Activision just announced that one of its own studios is working on a Walking Dead game as well — a first-person shooter — something Allison doesn’t seem to mind one bit: “As huge fans of the franchise and the show, we’re looking forward to seeing Terminal Reality’s game when it comes out.”
