If you're looking forward to The Wolf Among Us 2, good news: you get to look forward to it for much longer than you expected. Telltale Games has just announced a delay to the anticipated sequel in a statement released on social media:

In a further explanation over on IGN, the team goes over a few reasons it's pushing the release out of 2023. To summarise, Telltale has delayed the game in order to move it from Unreal Engine 4 to 5. Switching to the more modern engine will eventually lead to a more technically impressive title, but the studio wants to avoid crunch and/or releasing the game in a sloppy state.

"Making games is difficult and they need time to be right," says CEO Jamie Ottilie. "And it doesn't do any of us any good to ship something that's not ready."

He continues: "If we put this game out and it's not ready, we're going to get torn to shreds. The expectations are pretty high, and we want time to meet those and we want to be proud of it and know that, 'Hey, this is the best game we could have made.'"

So, it's going to be a long while until we see The Wolf Among Us 2 again, but it sounds like Telltale is going about things the right way. Are you excited for this one? Tell us in the comments section below.
