Previously, Telltale Games' The Walking Dead Season 3 received a delayed release date for its third episode after the game's two-episode premiere. It made fans wait for too long to get their hands on the new episode. The release took over three months before it was officially made to the public. Now that most of the players are done with Episode 3, they are wondering if how much time they will have to wait for Episode 4. Fortunately, fans would not wait for long compared last time, as the developer already plans for an April release date.
According to Attack of the Fanboy, the April release was not fully announced. However, the developer made it clear that they are currently working on it. That means troubles in the development might be still a factor for a possible delayed release. However, the developer assures fans one thing, saying that the wait for episodes 4 and 5 will be much shorter compared to episode 3.
Meanwhile, the upcoming episode 5 will mark as the season finale and aims a much shorter waiting time. Job Stauffer, Telltale Games' Head of Creative Communications, states that they are hoping for a May release for the final episode. If these two episodes hit the planned release, it would help those players who feel waiting between episodes is a loss to their hype on the series.
Apparently, most players who feel this way will most likely choose to wait until the full season is released. By this, it allows them to play through all five episodes in one outing. However, some might still enjoy the feeling of playing periodically. It will also help the developers regarding the choices they made in the game. The feedback from the fans is a critical factor for the developers to consider as a basis for their changes for the future episodes. Several known franchises have made this kind of move which is working well for both parties.
