The Wolf Among Us 2 is launching next year and uses Unreal Engine
The Wolf Among Us 2 has recieved its first trailer, showcasing what the successor to the 2013 Telltale classic will look like under Unreal Engine. The game now has a 2023 launch date, and AdHoc Studio, the game's developer, has confirmed that the game's new trailer uses in-engine footage.
The Wolf Among Us 2 was re-revealed at 2019's The Game Awards, with the game being published by a resurrected Telltale Games and co-developed by AdHoc Studio, a new game studio that is made up of almost 50% Telltale staff.
The Wolf Among Us 2 will retain the episodic structure of older Telltale games, though the company has confirmed that all five of the game's episodes will be completed before the game's 2023 launch and that all of the game's episodes will be launched on a regular schedule. This means that the release of specific episodes should not be delayed, and that fans should be confident that the game will be completed.
Despite the game's use of Unreal Engine, The Wolf Among Us 2 retains the same artstyle as the 2013 original. That said, animations appear smoother in The Wolf Among Us 2's new trailer, and the game appears to make greater use of lighting effects.
The World Among Us 2 will take place six months after the original game, with Bigby Wolf adjusting to his new life as a "Private Investigator". Bigby is no longer the sheriff of Fabletown, and that doesn't mean that be will be free of trouble. Adam Harrington and Erin Yvette will be reprising their roles as Bigby and Snow respectively, though at this time it is unknown how many voice actors will be taking up their prior roles with this new game release.
The Wolf Among Us 2 will be launching sometime in 2023 on PC, Xbox, PlayStation, and Switch.
