Telltale reveals Batman: The Enemy Within, The Wolf Among Us 2 and 'final' Walking Dead season

Batman season two debuts in August 2017, other episodic sequels scheduled for 2018.

Telltale has detailed its release schedule for the rest of 2017 and beyond at San Diego Comic-Con including one game that leaked less than 24 hours ago, a notable series finale, and a big surprise. You can watch Telltale's "Summer 2017 Update" event in the video above.

The first is a five-part follow-up to its Batman series subtitled "The Enemy Within" which debuts on 8 August on Xbox One, PS4 and PC via digital download. A boxed release for consoles and a mobile version for iOS and Android devices has also been confirmed.

The first episode is dubbed "The Enigma", which, as you may have guessed from the title, stars long-time Batman villain The Riddler. "In this latest chapter, both Bruce Wayne and Batman will be forced into precarious new roles," said Telltale in a press release.

"The Riddler has returned to terrorise Gotham City, but his gruesome puzzles merely foreshadow an even greater crisis. With the arrival of a ruthless federal agent and the return of a still nascent Joker, Batman must navigate uneasy alliances while Bruce Wayne undertakes a perilous series of deceptions."

The second game announced at SDCC brings a close to the series that arguably drove much of Telltale's success when it started back in 2012. That series is, of course, The Walking Dead.

Tentatively named The Walking Dead: The Final Season, the fourth and final set of zombie-heavy episodes brings the story's focus back to fan favourite character Clementine. The Final Season is set to launch in 2018 for consoles, PC and mobile.

And finally, in a move that suggests Telltale likes to tease us after all, the studio confirmed that a sequel is in the works for its cult classic series, The Wolf Among Us - yes, just a day after one of its employees played down fan hopes. Crafty.

Loosely penciled for a 2018 release window (again on all the usual platforms), the untitled second season promises to "begin a fresh story arc for its returning cast of characters, featuring the return of Adam Harrington as Bigby Wolf and Erin Yvette as Snow White."
