Telltale's The Walking Dead to get second season, retail box

How hot is The Walking Dead? Hot on the heels of Activision's announcement of a game based on AMC's television series, Telltale has announced a follow-up to its currently ongoing adventure game based on the comic book.

After all five episodes of the current season of Telltale's adventure game are released, Telltale will be producing a compilation that will be available at retail. Then, the studio will be working on a second season. "Following the digital release of our fifth episode we will also be coming to North American retail shortly thereafter and this will not be the last The Walking Dead game series that we do," senior vice president of marketing Steve Allison said.

With so many differing games based on the popular zombie apocalypse universe, one has to wonder: is it too much? "Regarding today's announcement of a project based [on] the AMC TV series coming in 2013," Allison told The Verge, "as huge fans of the franchise and the show, we're looking forward to seeing Terminal Reality's game when it comes out."

Episode three of season one of Telltale's game will be available next month.
