Telltale Games officially states intentions to complete The Walking Dead: The Final Season

The last two episodes of Clementine's saga may reach our hands after all.

The updates surrounding Telltale Games and their intellectual properties have been coming in at a rapid pace and we've got another one to deliver just as the day is wrapping up. The second episode of The Walking Dead: The Final Season comes out in a couple days and, while former devs hope everyone plays the new episode, the remaining episodes were essentially canceled as the company continues forward with a couple other obligations. That may change, as Telltale put out an official statement suggesting episodes three and the final fourth episode finishing up Clementine's Walking Dead saga may be released in some fashion after all.

The state of Telltale's other projects outside of the Minecraft game seems to be pretty much written in stone, but Netflix also wants to finish their Stranger Things game that allegedly fell through with the company. After opening up the doors to teams wanting to work on it, Devolver Digital unofficially applied for the Stranger Things job via social media.

While it is exciting as a fan of the games to potentially see this saga completed, I wonder if any new deals will be worked out to better support the many employees laid off. Stay tuned to Shacknews for additional updates.

      Excellent news amidst a tragedy. It sucks to be an artist with a story left unfinished.

        Especially, as I understood this, they worked this story backwards: they knew where they wanted Clem and AJ to end up by Ep 4, and worked the narrative in reverse.

        It's just a matter of executing on a story that's been fleshed out.

        Maybe we could build a fire, sing a couple of songs?

        Maybe another publisher could get involved, like devolver digital?

        No big change for them, really. Telltale sucked at paying their employees when they actually worked there.

        they will rehire them, and then immediately fire them again when it goes gold

        Won't hold up. The Staff has every right to angry. but the Warn Act won't hold up in this case, since the studio was actively searching for new means on income.

          That's likely going to be a detail to be figured out in court, the timing of all the events and what was documented.

            Ya we know what was said. However what is truth is unknown. The company had claimed they had a Netflix deal, and when that fell through they went under. Not Sure if it's true or not, but a judge will look into it. I've been in the same boat many times, and I've been super pissed, depressed, and angry. Thinking, how could i just lose my Job Today! without warning? Only to find out I basically have no say in the matter, just boils down to a really bad luck. As of the Info right now, if it is true. They have no case.

            The exceptions to 60-day notice are:

            Faltering company: The faltering company exception covers situations where a company has sought new capital or business in order to stay open and where giving notice would ruin the opportunity to get the new capital or business. This applies only to plant closings;

            Unforeseeable business circumstances: This exception applies to closings and layoffs that are caused by business circumstances that were not reasonably foreseeable at the time notice would otherwise have been required

            I'm just see the facts, when you get emotional bad things tend to happen. everyone seems to be mad at the Company, when they should be pissed at the CEO, it's his/her job to make sure they have work and are profitable in order to have their business open. Yet I see no one calling the CEO out. Everyone's pointing to "The Company" as a whole.
