After creating games based on famous franchises like The Walking Dead, Batman, Minecraft, Game of Thrones, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Jurassic Park - all based on the same game engine - it's finally time for developer Telltale Games to move onto something brand spanking new. Well, maybe not brand new, but different at least.
The Wolf Among Us: Season 2 (which was delayed into 2019 recently) will likely be the developer's very first game running on the super-popular Unity engine. Also, at the beginning of the year Telltale began scouting for Unity-experienced engineers as spotted on the studio's own website, and now Variety reports that the move to Unity will serve as a fresh start for the studio after there were massive job cuts together with a lawsuit filed by its former CEO.
Developers are allegedly readjusting to this new engine as they're moving forward, which in turn causes a longer development process than we've come to expect from Telltale, who have been pumping out games on a very regular basis for years.
Is this the right time to change engines?
