Telltale Games has delayed The Wolf Among Us 2;. The game will no longer be released in 2023.

The developer announced this yesterday. Telltale CEO Jamie Ottilie gave more context to IGN. For example, during the development of Unreal Engine 4, a switch was made to Unreal Engine 5, which “produced quite a bit of work”.

Ottilie reports that they should have worked too hard to release the game in 2023, or that the development could not have been completed properly as a result. “If we released this game before it was ready, we would be destroyed. Expectations are high and we want to live up to them. We want to be proud of it and deliver the best game possible.”

The Wolf Among Us is based on the acclaimed Fables comics, where characters from fairy tales live alongside humans in the real world. The first season, which appeared in 2013 and 2014, was appreciated by many players. The Wolf Among Us 2 is due out on Epic Games Store, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X and S, and Xbox One.
