The Walking Dead Season 2 & Season 1 Retail

Polygon, the gaming site of The Verge, received confirmation direct from Telltale that "the five-episode series would not be the only games set in the Walking Dead universe that the studio plans on creating".

Telltale also plans to bring it's first five episodes to retail in stores in North America after the fifth episode has been released.

Also, it's not adventure game news, but it's related and it's intriguing: Activision announced that they will be publishing a first person shooter by Terminal Reality based on the television series, rather than the comic (the universe in which Telltale's games are based), confusingly named The Walking Dead Video Game. A first person shooter based on the character-driven The Walking Dead universe seems like a poor fit, but there is supposedly limited ammunition and stealth options available as well. The Walking Dead Video Game will be released in 2013. Telltale's game has not yet received a release date, but I'd imagine the FPS announcement might have an impact. I'm sure they don't want to go head to head with Activision.
