Just a few days ago the news broke that Telltale Games was in the process of shutting up shop. Over 200 people were made redundant in a day – many of whom didn’t receive severance pay – and all projects were cancelled, including Stranger Things and The Wolf Among Us 2.
The initial reports stated that around 25 members of staff were going to be kept on to finish up the final season of The Walking Dead. However, it has since been suggested to USGamer that the remaining staff will not be working on The Walking Dead, but instead “fulfill the company’s obligations to its board and partners.” What this means is not clear at the moment.
It would be a crying shame if The Walking Dead’s final season was cut short without a conclusion, but it’s looking like it may be what’s going to happen.
