Telltale Games announces next release date for The Walking Dead

It’s alright sweetie, Episode 4 is almost here

Thanks to a self-professed Hello Kitty lover, Telltale Games have revealed the latest news on their episodic Walking Dead series. It’s a release date, but not for Episode 4: “Around Every Corner”.

Instead we’ve been given the release date for the disc version of their wildly successful downloadable game. The Walking Dead Season 1 disc release will show up in North American retail stores on December 4th, and in Europe at a to be determined date.

An ambitious release date that puts the release dates for episode 4 and 5 at sometimes before December. The Walking Dead has had a relationship with Halloween since the series premier back in 2010. Perhaps this year we’ll see an episode of the game premiering that week as well.

    I honestly didn’t expect this series to be so successful. I’m glad I was wrong.

    That’s actually the big question up in the air. PSN did something completely unexpected when they made episodes 1 and 2 Free for PSN+. They’ve given absolutely no indication that the entire season would be made available free. There are few common thoughts on what’s going on here

    – It takes a long time for episodes to release. Perhaps they saw how popular it was doing but couldn’t wait for the full season to release so they just gun jumped after 2.
    – Given the popularity of Walking Dead it’s entirely possible they won’t make the rest free. After all it doesn’t need the boost.
    – Based on how the game works episode 1 is the application and 2-5 are all DLC. They may do as they’ve done with Sam and Max before it and just make the first episode free. Perhaps that was the plan all along. Thus to give PSN+ users a value they give you TWO episodes.

    My personal prediction was that IF it goes free. It won’t happen until Christmas time which does match up with the now announced disc version. By that time all five episodes will be out. Either they go free for all five or they don’t go free anymore. It just doesn’t make much sense to keep making one episode at a time free. Again my personal prediction was an IF. I don’t think it will happen. I don’t think any more episodes will go free.
