The next episode of Telltale’s adventure game retelling of The Walking Dead arrives next month.
The company announced the mid-August target for the third episode on a blog post earlier today that focused on addressing the tardiness of the second episode.
“Although we can’t give you an exact date at this time, we can say that episode three will be ready in the middle of August,” the announcement read. “And that we and our partners will do all that we can to release all platforms and regions as close together as possible.”
The second episode arrived a lengthy two months after the first, and PS3 owners in Europe were out of luck for an extra week to boot. It’s something Telltale apparently is looking to remedy as soon as they can.
“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.”
