"....There may be something in the works, even as we speak, that will make the wait for season two slightly less agonizing.”
Yeah, because your adventure game was just so good that waiting for the sequel is just painful. Such arrogance upsets me.
O-kay? That's an odd reaction.
That quote is most likely responding to an interviewer asking him for the umpteenth time when there will be more Walking Dead episodes to play. Acknowledging that many people want to play a follow-up to this thing that won multiple GOTY awards is not arrogant, it's just acknowledging a reality. Nor is Whitta claiming ownership of the franchise. It's this very successful entity, separate from him, that he's been honored to pitch in on.
If you are implying that you don't think the games are good, you know that you are an outlier. There is nothing uncouth about acknowledging that tens of thousands of people are dying to know what happens next in that story.
