While Telltale is yet to offer a specific release date for Episode 2, it has said it's targeting the "first week of February".

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.

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.
