The Walking Dead Season 2 could carry over saves

The first season of Telltale Game's The Walking Dead is done for (much like half its cast, you monster) but players may not be able to escape their pasts so easily. Telltale CEO and co-founder Dan Connors told Red Bull UK the studio is looking into carrying over choices from one season to the next.

“Right now we are just starting to form the concept for season two,” Connors said. “This all remains to be seen but we are definitely figuring out how to carry the saves over.”

The original series put player choice in the spotlight with unrelenting judgment calls, many of which forced gut decisions on a panic-inducing timer. A plethora of decisions led to a complex array of relationships with survivors and not-so-survivors, which could be an interesting challenge to integrate with a new story.

Connors said comic series creator Robert Kirkman allowed a great deal of autonomy in the process of forming the first season's narrative. Telltale would like to pursue further licenses, perhaps even in other game worlds.

“Coming from LucasArts [former home of many Telltale employees] we always felt we could do a great Star Wars story game,” Connors said. “We also love the idea of building out a deeper story to a great game franchise, something like Half Life Stories or Halo Stories.”

    I've played the game a few times. When I last completed the game which was a few minutes ago,the guy in ep5 said I that I allowed something to happen to Clementine in ep2 which was not true and the game stats at the end said I helped Kenny do something in the meat locker in ep2 which was also untrue. If there are still problems with game choices carrying over from episode to episode on ps3 I don't have much faith in Telltale enabling game choices to carry over from ps3 to ps4 for season 2.

    I always figured that it was a possibility, but I wasn't positive that season two would continue in a way that would allow it. It might follow different characters, it might start off way into the future... Who knows. It looks like the game will be following at least some of the characters from season 1, however, and I'll be curious to see who makes the, uh, cut.

    I'm with you there Edias. I believe that it should start out with you playing a completely new character, and YOU as the character see Clementine on the coutryside sitting on a log. I also bet that the two silhouettes that Clementine sees are her imagination.

    (Potential Spoilers here) I kinda already seen this coming since whenever you have your last conversation with Clementine, notifications still pop up of her "remembering that". But still, can't wait for season two!

    I just hope the success doesn't go to their heads. The Walking Dead was surprising, and excellent. . . that much is true. However, it is also merely a high note in a recent string of, shall we say, not-so-high-notes. Please keep your Walking Dead franchise strong TellTale

    I imagine that they will try to stick with their current formula as much as possible. It's working for them, obviously, and there is no real strong reason to change it. The only quesiton is whether they can tell as compelling of a story this time around, but I would like to think that they can.

    TellTale grinds my gears so much, they have so much potential but their constant naiveity sets them back.
