In the wake of the news, the fate of the studio's current project, The Walking Dead: The Final Season, was left hanging in the balance, and now for the time being, the game is being removed from sale on digital platforms.
Netflix have stated that they are still planning on a creating a Stranger Things game even though Telltale Games have collapsed. Who knows, the publicity that the studio and property have garnered from this ongoing saga may end up being the driving force that the last two episodes need in order to become a reality. This allegedly included The Walking Dead: The Final Season, along with the second season of The Wolf Among Us and a Stranger Things project.
Episode Two of The Final Season launched on Tuesday, September 25, but whether or not episodes Three and Four ever release is in question. Following news that none of the employees were given severance or a heads up, Co-Founder Dan Connors recently took center stage to explain what happened behind the scenes and how they had "no choice" in how it all went down. Telltale Games fired 250 people without a 60-day warning. Are you happy that they are attempting to find solutions to at least finish the final season of The Walking Dead?
CEO of Telltale Games Pete Hawley said it had been an "incredibly hard year" for the company, which saw its games fail to sell enough to avoid the mass layoffs.
It's been an incredibly hard year for Telltale as we worked to set the company on a new course.
