Telltale Games Might Finish The Walking Dead Final Season
Telltale Games was hit with news of a sudden shut down last week. The studio laid off most of its staff, reportedly without severance pay, and cancelled its upcoming slate of projects.
Amongst the games hit by the abrupt collapse of the company is the final season of Telltale’s Walking Dead series. The second of that game’s four episodes launches today, but the fate of the remaining episodes has been unclear.
Several potential partners have shown interest in supporting the series, Telltale say, though this is far from settled and it could all still collapse for business reasons. Not to mention that some former staff have said Telltale’s Walking Dead team were amongst those laid off, so they’d need to rehire more people. But it’s a glimmer of hope for the game, at least.
“Multiple potential partners have stepped forward to express interest in helping to see The Final Season through to completion,” Telltale said in a statement on Twitter last night. “While we can’t make any promises today, we are actively working towards a solution that would allow episodes 3 and 4 to be completed and released in some form.”
Telltale’s potential closure leaves several high-profile projects in the lurch. Among them is a collaboration with Netflix to produce games based on the hit 1980s-themed science fiction drama Stranger Things. The streaming giant tells Polygon that one of those games could still be completed by the 25-person team left at Telltale. It’s unclear if that same team would also be responsible for work on final episodes of The Walking Dead.
