After revealing the sad news about their “majority studio closure,” Telltale Games has provided an update to share that they are in conversation with “multiple potential partners” to complete development on The Walking Dead: The Final Season.
This comes after most of the developer’s employees were dismissed to leave 25 staff remaining “to fulfil the company’s obligations to its board and partners.”
Those obligations have been reported to relate to Minecraft: Story Mode, meaning that The Walking Dead: The Final Season would be shelved. That would leave the last two episodes, and, more significantly, the finale to Clementine’s story untold.
“Hi everyone, we have a [The] Walking Dead: [The Final Season] update for you,” Telltale Games wrote in a statement.
“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.”
