As we all know by now, Telltale Games stopped just short of completely shuttering on Friday, with all but the Netflix Minecraft project ostensibly cancelled. Over 200 employees were let go without notice, days before the second of four planned episodes of The Walking Dead: The Final Season was set to release. While many have wondered what the fate of that game is now, a statement from the company may provide an answer.
The statement reads:
Hi everyone, we have a Walking Dead update for you. Multiple potential partners have stepped forward to express interest in helping to see The Final Season through to completion. While we can’t make any promises today, we are actively working towards a solution that will allow episodes 3 and 4 to be completed and released in some form. In the meantime, episode 2 will release tomorrow across all platforms as planned. We hope to have answers for your other questions soon.
So there’s no guarantee anything will come of this, but whatever work that went into the rest of The Walking Dead: The Final Season before the layoffs hit may not go to waste. It’s just a shame there’s as much, if not more, attention on the fate of this game than on the way the people at Telltale Games who made it were treated.
