Adventure studio Telltale Games has a bona fide hit on its hands in The Walking Dead, and the company has now announced it is expanding to handle a larger workload. This spring, Telltale will begin an expansion plan that will continue through the next few years.

The expansion applies to both the physical space and number of employees. It has signed a lease on a new office with nearly double the space, and the new building will support up to 160 employees compared to its current 125. The company says it will be expanding its staff over the next few years. This is after the studio has already doubled in size over the past two years.

"We've maxed out where we're at," CEO and co-founder Dan Connors told the North Bay Business Journal (via Develop). "Civic Center will give us room we need to grow our team and take on more projects on a yearly basis."

One of those projects will certainly be Season Two of The Walking Dead. The Season One finale, No Time Left, is debuting this week. Check out our review for more details.

      I hope it works out for them. From what it looks like with their release schedule, and what I hear on Idle Thumbs, those guys are working really hard to meet their deadlines. I think Sean or Jake was saying recently that there's really no time on a product to take a break and play around with different ideas. Adding more team members might not get games out the door faster, but I hope it reduces some of the load on those guys so they don't burn out. Although it sounds like they love what they're doing, as well.

        I think they were just in crunch time for the final episode, so I'm sure things get crazy for a while. Now that the episode is out I'm sure they get a little break for a bit. And yeah, they seem to love what they do so there are worse situations to be in.

      They should hook up with Stephen King and do a Dark Tower game.
