A new episodic Batman video game wasn’t the only thing Telltale showed off at The Game Awards 2015. The award winning studio also revealed that their upcoming three part mini-series starring Michonne, will now release in February of next year instead of this month.
When it was first announced, Telltale Games stated that players would be required to have at least completed the first episode of The Walking Dead: Season Two, in order to play the mini-series. Now that will no longer be the case as Telltale’s Head of creative Communications, Job Stauffer has confirmed via Twitter, that Michonne “will now be a stand-alone series”.
Confirmed: You *will* get your 1st look at TWD:Michonne @thegameawards. It won't premiere this month, but will now be a stand-alone series.

Telltale Games announced a three-part mini-series starring Michonne, as the next installment for The Walking Dead series. The three episodes will follow Michonne’s absence between issues #126 and #139 of the popular comic book series. Players will learn why she she left her group and she inevitably rejoined them.
“In many ways, Michonne herself is a reflection of the world of The Walking Dead. She is brutal and cold on the outside, but deep beneath what is broken, she remains hopeful, trying to claw her way out of the darkness that surrounds her,” said Robert Kirkman, creator of The Walking Dead. “In our effort to bring the world of the comic and the world of the Telltale series closer together, there is no greater character than Michonne to help bridge that gap.”
“Michonne’s complexity and range make her an ideal lead for the compelling interactive drama fans have come to expect from Telltale,” said Kevin Bruner, Co-Founder and CEO of Telltale Games. “With this mini-series, players will experience Michonne’s challenges first-hand, and the choices they make will shape her journey. We’re incredibly honored by Robert for the opportunity to share this untold story in The Walking Dead universe.”
The Walking Dead: Michonne will release later this year on PC/Mac, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, and compatible iOS and Android-based devices. Completing the first episode of The Walking Dead: Season Two is required in order to play the mini-series. Stay tuned for more info.
