When season one of The Walking Dead hit last year, a lot of people assumed that the episodic adventure series would turn into an annual thing. Many of us thought season two would be out in 2013.


But alas. Season two of the critically-acclaimed series might not hit til fall of 2014, according to Telltale boss Dan Connors, who spoke to Eurogamer at the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) awards last night.

"We're aiming for fall next year," Connors said, adding that something else will help fill the gap while we wait. "We'll probably have something to announce fairly soon about what we're going to do... It'll be different."

Hopefully it's a first-person shooter. Just kidding.

Update: Speaking with Game Informer, a Telltale representative said that the second season is in fact targeted for the coming fall, not next fall.

"The current estimated release window for Season Two of The Walking Dead is for fall of ‘this' year (2013), and not ‘next' year (2014) as has been reported after a recent interview. We apologize for any confusion and thank you and all of our fans for your continued excitement for Telltale's series."

I'm anxious to understand how they plan to handle Season 1 saves.

Will Season 2 be launched for both current and next-gen consoles?

Will Season 1 saves be transferable across consoles or, on next-gen consoles, will there be a set of input boxes (as Mass Effect has used) to indicate appropriate scenarios?

A fall 2013 launch raises a lot of questions and issues...
