The Walking Dead Season 2 May Contain TV Series Tie-Ins
The first season of The Walking Dead adventure game by TellTale Games was by all accounts a smashing success, earning the studio numerous awards and selling more than well enough to guarantee the development of a second season.
Today, the company’s CEO Dan Connors told Polygon that there is a distinct possibility that the second season of the game will tie into the TV series.
“There’s nothing saying our characters couldn’t cross over with their characters at some point in the timeline. It’s a very interesting concept for us,” said Connors.
It wouldn’t be the first time the game has crossed over with characters from the TV series on AMC, which closely follows that of the comic books. The first episode of the game’s first season featured Glenn, a main character in both the TV show and the comics.
“A huge goal for us is what happens between episodes. How do you carry the experience through? How do you use this ability we have to keep people engaged and talking,” he said.
As the game is currently in its planning stage, Connors says that “anything is possible,” and that they may look into using the events from the TV series to tie the first and second seasons of the games together.
