It looks like the final arc of Clementine’s story in The Walking Dead will get resolved after all.
Telltale’s The Walking Dead: The Final Season was originally believed to be cancelled after the closure of adventure game company Telltale earlier this year. Almost immediately, rumors began to swirl that companies were working with Telltale to continue the series though. The studio that did eventually revive the project would pick up where Telltale left off, and round out the final season with a final few episodes.
After a couple of weeks, during New York Comic Con, Skybound Entertainment announced that they would be continuing work on the series through a deal with Telltale. The company would even bring in some former Telltale team members to help ensure development continued smoothly. Fans were eagerly awaiting more news, and especially release dates for the last two episodes, and now we’ve got that news.
Today, the company started by The Walking Dead comics creator Robert Kirkman, Skybound Entertainment posted an update on the project. You can read the full statement over on their website, but here’s the important bit:
“It’s been a ton of work logistically and legally to get us to a place where we’re able to roll up our sleeves and get to the actual work. […] We’re excited to let you know that many of the talented, passionate team members who originally worked on the game are resuming development efforts today!”
According to the company, the release dates of both episodes will be revealed shortly, and we can expect more news then.
So it would seem that despite some of the Telltale library of games disappearing from Steam and other platforms as a result of reported asset liquidation, the project is continuing.
