Telltale's The Walking Dead Season 3 screenshot of Javier and Clementine

If you were hoping that Telltale's The Walking Dead: Season 3 would release in November as previously announced, I am afraid I have a bit of bad news. According to the newly updated release dates on both the official site and Steam, Season 3 will not be releasing in November, but rather on December 20.

As with all of Telltale's modern games, Season 3 - A New Frontier will be broken up into five episodes, so it is important to note that this December will only bring with it the first episode. On the positive side, if the trailer is any judge it appears to be quite an intriguing first episode! Have a look:

While I would love to offer you more information, especially about the story premise and the characters, there is unfortunately very little to share right now. And if you're wondering how little this really is, let's just say that the entirety of information can be summed up with this one quote from Telltale:

"This third new season will serve as both a continuation of what's come before in our story, as well as an all-new beginning set nearly four years after the outbreak events of Season One. As a harrowing and horrific drama, 'A New Frontier' will explore beyond what it means to survive in a world ravaged by the undead, and will see our characters confronting the new rules of order and justice in a land being brutally reclaimed and rediscovered by what's left of humanity itself.

When we began this series, we explored what it meant to protect a character like Clementine at all costs. Years later, meeting her for the first time, Javier will begin to unravel the mystery of who Clementine has become, as her story intersects with his - both of them still driven by the things they value most long after society's collapse."

And finally, since I can't offer you much in terms of information, here's a couple of rather interesting images instead:
