Skybound Games Will Finish The Walking Dead: The Final Season

Robert Kirkman, the creator of The Walking Dead comics which spawned a horror empire, announced today at New York Comic Con that the games division of his label Skybound has agreed to terms with Telltale to finish The Walking Dead: The Final Season.

Fortunately, it seems that Skybound will be able to pick up where Telltale left off, since The Walking Dead: The Final Season was almost finished at the time of the studio's closure. He said Skybound will hire on developers from Telltale's Walking Dead team in order to see the project through to completion. When Telltale announced the "majority studio closure", it seems likely that some of the affected staffers on The Walking Dead team sought other work.

Today, the company made the announcement we've all be waiting for, revealing Project xCloud. Currently, the test experience is running at 10 megabits per second.

It may be the end of Telltale as a studio, but the final season of its Walking Dead series doesn't look like it will go unfinished. Thank you to the fans for being so supportive of this series and vocal about wanting to see Clementine's story continue! With Skybound taking over development and publishing of the game, fans will thankfully be able to finish Clementine's story, fears put to rest. More than 200 people lost their jobs at Telltale, and a portion of them were working on The Walking Dead.

Reportedly, most of Telltale's employees were laid off without notice or severance on September 21st, with the final skeleton crew also being axed just two days before this announcement.
