[UPDATE: According to this tweet from developer Telltale Games, launch dates for The Walking Dead Season Two – Episode Two is as follows: PC/Mac on March 4, Xbox 360 on March 5, and iOS on March 6.]
The Walking Dead Season One put players in binds, episode after episode, for an entire harrowing five-episode run.
Season Two is no joke either, with Episode One not exactly out to get laughs. Now, we've got a launch date for Episode Two: A House Divided — it's tomorrow, March 4 — while we wait for the usual Telltale Games song and dance for release dates on the other platforms.
It should be on Xbox 360 and iOS the following day, March 5, but I'm only guessing. I know Sony probably handed over a bagfull of cash to get a 24-hour jump on the competition, but let's just go ahead and have the release calendar nailed down for the public when there's only 48 hours to go, ok, Telltale Games? It was cute having these at-the-last-minute launch announcements during Season One, but ithis routine's gotten old. Same goes for The Wolf Among Us. You're not in danger of overhyping when you give me a one or two-week launch announcement. I'm capable of managing my own hype levels, thank you.
