Telltale’s The Walking Dead Season 3 is expected to shamble onto our screens sometime this year, and Robert Kirkman (the man responsible for the entire franchise) has shared a few details.
In a video interview with IGN, Kirkman discussed the trust he has in Telltale to expand the post apocalyptic world he created all those years ago.
He also talked about where Season 3 fits in the series’ timeline – though I should point out that the Telltale games share a universe with Kirkman’s Walking Dead comic book, not the increasingly lackluster TV series.
Season 3 of the Telltale series is really exciting to me just because the way that the timeline works, season three will actually be getting pretty close to where we are in the comics concurrently, like the books that are coming out now are roughly in the same time frame that season three will be in. There’s a lot of really cool, really exciting things coming that I don’t think people will expect.
Kirkman also went on to confirm that we’d be seeing more of Season 2 protagonist Clementine – but stopped short of sharing in what capacity she shows up. Can you imagine if it was a brief cameo as a Walker? The rage would be real.
Probably not though, since apparently she’s aged a few years since Season 2. Kirkman also teased that the new season would tie in to the comics a lot more than previous games did.
I think, similar to the Michonne series, there will probably be some more comic book elements that will be working into things in some interesting ways. I don’t want to reveal too much, but it’ll definitely go hand in hand with the comics a little bit more than season two did.
That teasing little minx. The Walking Dead Season 3 is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC sometime before the end of 2016.
