Season 3 of Telltale’s The Walking Dead is expected to arrive at some point this year, but things have been quiet while their Michonne miniseries got some time on the zombie-splatting stage. The first details have now started to emerge, however, from none other than The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman himself.
While you’re waiting for more TT walkers, why not check out our list of the best zombie games.
Speaking in an IGN video, Kirkman speaks candidly about his trust for Telltale to expand on his universe, and how Season 3 will fit into that world.
“Season 3 of the Telltale series is really exciting to me just because the way that the timeline works, Season 3 will actually be getting pretty close to where we are in the comics concurrently, like the books that are coming out now are roughly in the same time-frame that Season 3 will be in,” Kirkman explained. “There’s a lot of really cool, really exciting things coming that I don’t think people will expect.”
He continued to reveal that Clementine, your companion in the first season and the protagonist of Season 2, will be returning in some form. Hopefully not as a zombie.
“We’ll be checking in on Clementine again, so we’ll be seeing her, seeing where she’s at and what’s going on with her, which is going to be great,” Kirkman said.
Judging by the time-line, Clementine will be a bit older in this season, but it’s not clear whether we’ll be playing as her this time. Telltale aren’t scared of playing with different perspectives, after all.
Whatever they are going with, though, apparently it will tie in a bit more with the universe as a whole.
“I think, similar to the Michonne series, there will probably be some more comic book elements that will be working into things in some interesting ways,” Kirkman revealed. “I don’t want to reveal too much, but it’ll definitely go hand in hand with the comics a little bit more than Season 2 did.”
The Walking Dead Season 3 is expected to release some time this year.
