Telltale's The Walking Dead: Season Three premieres this year, according to a recent Mashable article. They said we can expect to hear more about the zombie series' third season around 2016's San Diego Comic-Con, while the game will premiere later this year.

Mashable's interview with CEO Kevin Bruner doesn't reveal many details on the third season, but it does talk about season two's multiple endings and how Telltale will deal with them.

"The way that we're dealing with and validating and retaining all those different playthroughs is really cool and unexpected and, I think, pretty innovative from the storytelling point of view," Bruner said.

Bruner also wants to welcome more fans of The Walking Dead show and comics, who might not have played the first two seasons. He says he thinks "where [Telltale] is landing with the story for season three does a really good job of" bringing in new players and keeping its current storylines going.

"It allows people who maybe haven't people [the first two seasons] to come in and get up to speed really quickly. But it definitely respects, honors, and facilitates all of the various end points that Season Two had," he explained.

He also mentioned a solution for the lack of cloud save services in season one, which will hopefully help season three players retrieve their data. Unfortunately, he didn't reveal any details about said solution.

The Walking Dead: Season Three wouldn't be the only Telltale game releasing this year. The developer's Batman series debuts this summer and lets you play as both the Caped Crusader and Bruce Wayne.
