"The Walking Dead" for the PS3, Xbox 360, PC and iOS devices won much critical acclaim and commercial success for Telltale Games. Naturally, CEO Dan Connors confirmed that the studio has begun work on a second season of the episode adventure game and shares a little on what other franchises the team would like to work on.
"Right now we are just starting to form the concept for season two," Connors told Red Bull UK. "This all remains to be seen but we are definitely figuring out how to carry the saves over."
The news that Telltale is attempting to carry saves from "The Walking Dead" season one over to season two should raise some eyebrows given the first season's ending.
Connors also dropped names of both games and TV shows that inspired Telltale's work with "The Walking Dead.
“I think the games that we talked about the most during development were Heavy Rain and Uncharted from a cinematic standpoint, and Mass Effect from a choice standpoint,” he said.
“For other media we always look at the best episodic series out there - obviously the Walking Dead TV show, but also Game of Thrones and Mad Men, for the way they handle characters and are able to present them with so much depth.”
Telltale has already worked on games based on the "Jurassic Park" and "Back to the Future" movies so there's a history of working with established franchises. Connor shared some other well-known properties that the studio would like to work on.
“Coming from LucasArts we always felt we could do a great Star Wars story game,” he says. “We also love the idea of building out a deeper story to a great game franchise, something like Half Life Stories or Halo Stories.”
A Telltale 'Star Wars' title is a definite possibility since George Lucas sold the franchise to Disney. The House of Mouse isn't as keen into developing big console and PC titles itself these days and said that it would license out its properties for game development. 'Halo' and 'Half-Life' are very much not likely to happen though.
