The Wolf Among Us Episode 2 releases on PC, PlayStation 3 Feb. 4, Xbox 360 Feb. 5

The second episode of Telltale's adventure series based on the Fables comic will hit PC and PlayStation 3 first, then Xbox 360 and iOS.

Episode two of The Wolf Among Us, Smoke & Mirrors, will hit PC, Mac, PlayStation 3, and PS Vita in the US Feb. 4, and Xbox 360 and Sony platforms in Europe Feb. 5, developer Telltale announced on Twitter. The game will come to the iTunes App Store next week.

It's been four months since the first episode of The Wolf Among Us came out, a much longer wait than Telltale had hoped for, but it said that this is an unusual case. "We are very concerned about the long delay for this episode," Telltale's Kevin Bruner said on the company forums, "but this is one of those occasions where several things conspired against us (not to mention the additional delays due to the holidays). I won't dive into the details, but it’s been an unusual and specific set of circumstances and we do not anticipate it happening again as we go forward with the rest of the season."

The first episode of The Wolf Among Us, which is based on Bill Willingham's Fables comic book series, was released back in October 2013. The total season will have five chapters, which Telltale said would be released by the end of summer 2014.

GameSpot's Kevin VanOrd awarded the first chapter of the series a score of 8.0.

Telltale also released the following trailer for Smoke & Mirrors.

really enjoyed it, and I'm enjoying this series so far, hoping that the next episode will come out soon and not in another 4 months. I'm finding this to be much more enjoyable than Walking Dead, guess I'm just not enjoying the story anymore, and I'm hoping by the time Wolf Among us ends, they'll make a season 2!

The first paragraph mentions episode 2 also coming to Vita on Feb 4th, however, I can't seem to find episode 1 on the the PS Store. Am I doing something wrong? Or was that a misprint?

Played the first episode and really liked it. But now, I can't remember 80% of what happened. Episodic content sucks. Never buying again until all episodes are out.

As much as i like Telltale games, the the most important thing about episodic game is hitting at regular and close intervals, which telltale couldn't do as of yet. I fear it will only get worse with them handling multiple projects this year.

These episodes take too long to come out one after another. Too long.

I bought a season pass knowing I would have to wait 6 months before all episodes are out.  I'll start playing them when the 4th in the series has been released.

It goes from "It might be released soon" to "It will be released three days from now." I lost my save so I'll do another playthrough.

Sweet, this game looks really cool but I haven't made the purchase yet, kind of waiting to see if the quality is maintained for the next episodes, but mostly because It would probably drive me crazy to have to wait months between playing each episode!

I wasn't into episodic games before The Wolf. The Walking Dead was decent, but didn't excite me too much. But Episode One from The Wolf changed all that! It was fantastic! Can't wait for Smoke & Mirrors!

@enoughofthis What constitutes a real game is a never ending subject of debate. To me, if I can play it and my involvement is required to progress then it's a game. But that's just my personal opinion.

The fact of the matter is that no one has any right to define what a game is considering that it's still evolving. That is if you ignore first person shooters, which have evolved slower than any other genre.
