So Telltale have announced that season 2 is out in the Autumn of 2014. That's a very long wait, longer than I was expecting.
It also means it'll likely be a next generation game, although it's possible it could be out on current consoles, although they'll be a bit old by then. If it is next generation only, then there won't be any save transfers most likely.
Looks like it's time to look ahead to other games for the foreseeable future, then.
