By

"A huge goal for us is what happens between episodes. How do you carry the experience through? How do you use this ability we have to keep people engaged and talking?" Connors said.

"The team is looking at ways to allow the community to stay connected with one another during and between episodes. There's also talk of perhaps tying the game, or at least the game's characters, in closer with the show.

"There's nothing saying our characters couldn't cross over with their characters at some point in the timeline. It's a very interesting concept for us."

It was recently revealed that The Walking Dead has sold more than 8.5 million episodes across all platforms.

The game has earned Telltale an estimated $40 million, with the average revenue per user valued at around $16.

The Walking Dead was voted Digital Spy's 2012 game of the year, beating the likes of Far Cry 3, Black Ops 2 and XCOM: Enemy Unknown.
