Telltale Games will release Fables: The Wolf Among Us Episode 2 in the "first week of February", the developer has announced.
Telltale co-founder Kevin Bruner delivered the news following "long delays" to the episode's release due to a series of unspecified "unusual" issues during development.
"We are working hard with all of our partners (Xbox, PlayStation, Steam, Apple) to coordinate everything, but we're confident enough to announce that," said Bruner.
"The episode is looking really good (as is the rest of the season!). We are very concerned about the long delay for this episode, but this is one of those occasions where several things conspired against us (not to mention the additional delays due to the holidays).
"I won't dive into the details, but it's been an unusual and specific set of circumstances and we do not anticipate it happening again as we go forward with the rest of the season," he said.
The Wolf Among Us takes place prior to Bill Willingham's award-winning series and casts players as Bigby Wolf (Big Bad Wolf), who has been exiled to New York from the land of the fable homelands.
In Telltale's new episodic, decision-based quest, Bigby must keep fairytale characters including Mr. Toad and the Three Little Pigs undetected in the human world.
The first episode was released for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC versions of the game in October 2013 to widespread critical acclaim. The iOS version followed in December. A The Wolf Among Us review roundup is here.
