The developer has now confirmed via Twitter that nothing will come of it. The title will certainly not be released this year and there is currently no new date.

Wolf Among Us 2 was first announced at San Diego Comic-Con 2017 and is slated to be released in 2018 for PC, Mac, consoles and mobile devices. It was pushed back to 2019 before Telltale Games ran into serious financial difficulties at the time. After the rescue, it was confirmed that development work would resume at Game Awards 2019 – and it should have happened this year.
