Walking Dead Saves Will Carry Over
Telltale is working on a way to implement a save import feature for the next season of The Walking Dead game, an interview on Red Bull’s website reports.
“Right now we are just starting to form the concept for season two. This all remains to be seen but we are definitely figuring out how to carry the saves over,” said Telltale’s CEO and co-founder Dan Connors, asked what the plans were for a second season of the game.
The implications for such a feature are many and various; The Walking Dead ends on a pretty definitive note, as anyone who’s finished it will know, but is it possible that you’ll encounter surviving characters again in Season 2, or learn what happened to those characters whose fate was ambiguous at the end of episode 5?
Telltale has also recently revealed sales figures for the game of 8.5 million individual episodes, which the Wall Street Journal calculates at more than $40m of revenue.
We speculated recently about what might be next for Telltale after the immense success of The Walking Dead – Connors has his own ideas. “Coming from LucasArts we always felt we could do a great Star Wars story game,” says Connors. “We also love the idea of building out a deeper story to a great game franchise, something like Half Life Stories or Halo Stories.”
We’d be very much up for that. Would you?
