The second season of The Wolf Among Us was already cancelled even before the shutdown of Telltale Games.
The first season of The Wolf Among Us received critical praise for its choice-driven story, so fans were excited when Telltale Games announced that it would release the second season.
Now it appears that The Wolf Among Us 2 was never actually going to happen, according to a Eurogamer report that about the final year of Telltale Games.
“[The budget was] shoe-string, even by Telltale standards,” said a former staff member to Eurogamer, who added that Telltale Games employees knew that The Wolf Among Us was not a commercial success.
The Wolf Among Us 2 started development in the summer of 2017, with Telltale Games releasing an announcement trailer and bringing back most of the people that worked on the first season. However, even with the declaration of a 2018 release date, there were doubts within the studio.
“Even when the marketing team recorded the [The Wolf Among Us 2] announcement trailer, many people within the studio doubted it would ever see the light of day,” said one of Eurogamer’s close sources.
