With Telltale games recently shutting down and only this week letting their small skeleton team of staff go, we didn’t know where the final Walking Dead game in their series will actually go.
Many rumours were circulating stating that we would never see the end of the Final Season as they wouldn’t be publishing anymore episodes after season 2. A few were saying that the skeleton staff will handle it, but due to them being let go, we just didn’t know.
Now, at New York Comic Con, a panel with Skybound Entertainment, a company founded by Robert Kirkman believe it or not, has agreed to publish the rest of the series on behalf of Telltale Games. The following statement was released by Skybound Entertainment:
“We have taken ownership of Telltale’s The Walking Dead: The Final Season and will finish the season. Skybound will work with members of the original Telltale team to finish the story in a way the fans deserve. Skybound will continue to update fans on the status of the game on Skybound.com, Twitter, and Facebook.”
We’re SO happy to announce that we’ve reached a deal with @telltalegames that will allow Skybound to continue #TheWalkingDead: The Final Season! Let’s wrap up Clem’s story right! More details to come soon. pic.twitter.com/ShyREw65iq
