Telltale Games may finish The Walking Dead's final season after all

"Multiple potential partners have stepped forward to express interest in helping to see The Final Season through to completion", Telltale said in a statement on Twitter last night.

Story-driven pseudo-cel-shaded adventure creator Telltale Games has confirmed that it is effectively shutting up shop, laying off the vast majority of its staff and retaining only a skeleton crew to finish its contractual obligations on a streaming title for Netflix.

These two next clips show the updated look for Telltale's conversation system, and a bit of exploration around the house.

So maaaybe. In some form.

Before Telltale let 250 of its developers go ahead of an upcoming closure, the studio was working with Netflix on a Stranger Things game. In fact, even the voice over actors were left unsure of whether or not all four episodes would be released as promised.

"We released some of our best content this year and received a tremendous amount of positive feedback, but ultimately, that did not translate to sales", Telltale said over the weekend when confirming the huge layoffs.

Today Telltale Games made the hard decision to begin a majority studio closure following a year marked by insurmountable challenges. The studio kept hush on who these potential partners may be, and stressed that this was not a guarantee of any kind while talks are still in motion.

Game Workers Unite says incidents like these are prevalent in the game industry. 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.
