The Wolf Among Us 2 does not assume that you have played the first one

The wolf among us is coming back, but the long-awaited sequel won’t seem to lean too much on 2013’s original episodic adventure. According to an interview with Telltale CEO Jamie Ottilie in Edge magazine, picked up by IGN, newcomers to the series can play the upcoming sequel without catching up with the original.

“We strive to craft our narratives so that they can stand on their own,” Ottilie said. “We think the opening of the first episode sets things up so that the player understands how the characters got to where they are now.”
