Telltale's Executive Producer Kevin Boyle announced that "The Walking Dead" season 3 adventure game series release date will be in late 2016. During a conference at 2016 PAX West, Boyle said that the game will be playable in November this year for PC, console and mobile devices.

While Telltale Games has yet to confirm the official release date of "The Walking Dead" season 3, a Reddit user claimed to have seen JB Hi-Fi posted a suggestive question of the actual release date as November 15, 2016. The speculated release date falls on Tuesday itself which is the current US industry standard for releasing games. On top of that, the rumored release date agreed with the details about the game on Amazon. Nevertheless, only the official release date announcement from the game's publisher can verify if the information were accurate.

Gamerant says that in "The Walking Dead" season 3 game, Clementine will be returning as a playable character along with a newbie named Javier. The trailer below which was originally revealed during an IGN Live Stream will show a teenage Clementine who put a zombie down with a gunshot. It is also quite noticeable that she is missing a finger on her left hand. It appears that the place where the two characters were seen walking has been abandoned.

During an interview with Mashable, Kevin Bruner, Telltale's CEO said that "The Walking Dead" season 3 game will have an unexpected approach as how to thread the endings from the previous season to the beginnings of season 3. He also added that the different playthroughs are going to be creatively presented in a storytelling perspective.

In addition, Bruner told the source that they have already come up with an approach that will allow the players of the "The Walking Dead" season 3 to gather all their data from the earlier seasons. Gamers can now save their game progress on Telltale's servers as cloud services are expected to come alongside with the game's launching.
