The Walking Dead: Episode 2 release date announced

The first episode of Telltale's video game adaptation of The Walking Dead was a fantastic surprise when it launched back in April. Not only did itimpress (opens in new tab)us quite a bit, but it also sold through the roof, becoming amillion-seller (opens in new tab)in no time at all.

In a last minute surprise, Telltale announced today that the next episode in the series will be landing on XBLA tomorrow, while the PS3 and PC versions will arrive on Friday.

It will be really interesting to hear a bit about how the next episode in the series sells. Telltale is one of the only companies left in the business that still sticks to the episodic release structure (though games like Halo 4 are somewhat resurrecting it,) and we're curious how many users will stick around for future episodes. Or will the game's positive word of mouth actually increase the rate of sales over the last game? Who knows! We're interested to find out.

We'll have our review of Episode 2 posted as soon as possible.
