Telltale has offered a tentative release window for Episode 3 of The Walking Dead, with plans to avoid a repeat of the delayed launch of Episode 2.
Episode 2 finally launched on the European PlayStation Store yesterday, following a release last week on other platforms. Telltale promised to do its best to avoid a similar delay with Episode 3, the developer wrote the following on its official website:
“For many of you, the most important thing is to let you know when the next episode (Episode 3: Long Road Ahead) will be available, and although we can’t give you an exact date at this time, we can say that Episode 3 will be ready in the middle of August, and that we and our partners will do all that we can to release all platforms and regions as close together as possible.”
Telltale failed to explain the reasons behind the Episode 2 delay, but thanked fans for their patience:
“First and foremost we want to thank everyone for their patience with regard to the launch of episode two of The Walking Dead. As you may know, it arrived later than anticipated and this has been a cause of frustration for everyone.”
“Our goal from day one has been to deliver your game episodes as quickly as possible, and where we can, simultaneously across all platforms and regions. We’ve been working closely with our phenomenally supportive partners to try to make this a reality.”
“We will continue to work on this and furthermore, we will strive to improve our communication with you so that you know what’s happening. Please rest assured that we are doing all we can to get your game episodes to you as quickly as possible.”
