Telltale Games Reaches Deal With Skybound Games to Finish The Walking Dead: The Final Season

We’ve just learned that Telltale Games has reached a deal with Skybound Games to finish The Walking Dead: The Final Season. Previously, the remaining episodes were going to be left unfinished and unpublished. No schedule for the last two episodes has been announced however, Skybound Games has said that more information is coming soon.

The announcement from Skybound Games:

According to Variety, Skybound Games will work developers from Telltale who were laid off, though not many other details have been made available. Skybound Entertainment (the parent company of Skybound Games) was founded by Robert Kirkman, a co-creator of The Walking Dead franchise. Skybound Games was opened earlier this year to support and develop games based on The Walking Dead.

Robert Kirkman spoke to an audience at New York Comic-Con, saying “We’ve successfully negotiated with Telltale Games for our company Skybound to come in and see Season 4 of the Telltale game to completion,” adding that “We can’t lose Andrew Lincoln and Clementine in the same year.”

Earlier this year, developers at Telltale Games were hit by massive layoffs, leaving all but 25 of their developers without jobs or even severance pay.  Recently, we learned that even the skeleton team of 25 remaining developers has been affected by layoffs. It’s good to see that The Walking Dead: The Final Season will be finished but I hope we see the affected employees paid their severance pay.
