Despite the promise to share more details in 2022, we already have some details
Wolf Among Us 2, or the second season, was announced earlier this week by Telltale Games. This is a follow-up that has been in the works for some time, especially after the previous award-winning iteration, The Wolf Among Us.
While we thought the details would have to wait at least a week or more, apparently some details have already been leaked. Thanks to Game Informer Magazine and Insider Shinobi602 (at least, that’s his Twitter username), we’ve learned the status of current developments, as well as the current timeline of the upcoming Wolf Among Us game.
For the story, according to the leak, the Telltale game will take place six months after the original game, ensuring that the setting for the game is a “winter wonderland” of New York City. The only character we can be sure of will be in the Wolf Among Us game is Bigby Wolf, as he is the one who is named after the game. Everything else in the story is shrouded in mystery.

But on the production side, Wolf Among Us seems to be doing quite well. The script is in the process of being finalized and motion capture is currently in the works. There has also been a change from Unity to Unreal Engine 4 for the game itself, which has apparently helped streamline current development. This is all good news, as before this quick news breakout, Wolf Among Us 2 has seemingly been shelved since its announcement in 2019.
All that said though, there is currently no known release window for Wolf Among Us 2. We know it will be released on PC, PlayStation, and Xbox, but neither is the price.
Fortunately, 2022 is not far off. We may know more about this sooner than we think.
