The Wolf Among Us, The Walking Dead Head to PS4, Xbox One
Telltale Games announced The Wolf Among Us and both seasons of The Walking Dead: A Telltale Games Series will be released on PS4 and Xbox One. Some big retailers–Best Buy and GameStop–recently listed The Wolf Among Us for pre-order ahead of the announcement. This probably forced Telltale’s hand to have an official post on its release plans.
This is great news for gamers that haven’t played these games yet, and prefer physical over digital, but maybe not so great for Telltale. Even though we know a hit game from Telltale would eventually see retail release, announcing the retail versions so soon may cut into their digital sales. There are gamers that will wait for the next-gen release to experience the “best” version–assuming these versions will run better that the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions.
To put a positive spin on this, there may also be gamers that would want to experience it again on their new shiny console just to have something to play. Hopefully these games will see release before the great gaming flood coming in October, and who knows what will come out of E3.
Will any of you pick these up for the PS4 or Xbox One releases?
