The sudden closure of Telltale Games came as a surprise to both fan and employees of Telltale alike. This affected not games that they were in the early stages of development on, like Stranger Things, but The Walking Dead: The Final Season, which already had its first episode released. The status of the game had been in limbo, but we had a feeling that the final episodes were going to be completed, and Robert Kirkman made the announcement at New York Comic Con yesterday: Skybound will complete and release the remaining episodes.
Per, Skybound's TheWalkingDead.com: "This didn’t just affect us as partners—we were among those fans. Since Telltale’s closure notice, we’ve been spending long hours figuring out if we could help complete this game. And as of today, we are VERY pleased to announce that we are taking on the job of finishing The Walking Dead: The Final Season and seeing an end to Clem’s story line, while working with with members of the original Telltale team.
We’re currently ironing out some of the details as this is a pretty major deal, so we’ll have more info on the who/what/where/when/how very soon as those details are finalized. We appreciate your patience during this process. Thank you to the fans for being so supportive of this series and vocal about wanting to see Clementine’s story continue! We’re going to do right by you (and also for ourselves, because WE want to play it too!)."
According to an official statement from Skybound, they are going to work with original members of the Telltale development team to finish the game. We'll be sure to share more details with Daily Dead readers as they become available.
