The Walking Dead's third episode due 'middle of August,' Telltale says

Despite some launch setbacks with its last Walking Dead episode, Telltale Games wants to reassure fans that the third episode in the series – "Long Road Ahead" – launches in "the middle of August." The company's blog announced as much in an apologetic letter, where a company rep said, "Although we can't give you an exact date at this time, we can say that episode three will be ready in the middle of August, and that we and our partners will do all we can to release all platforms and regions as close together as possible."

The Walking Dead's episodic series received critical praise and commercial success since the first episode launched earlier this year. The game's third episode is set for launch this August, with two more planned episodes launching in subsequent months.
