Skybound Games to complete Telltale Games' Walking Dead series

Skybound Games to complete Telltale Games' Walking Dead series

Skybound Games plans to complete work on The Walking Dead: The Final Season following the impending closing of developer Telltale Games.

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. Skybound's founder, Robert Kirkman, is also the original creator of The Walking Dead comics, so it seems a natural enough fit, but questions remain about what this will mean for the original workers.

Clementine's story will be completed. Things were looking grim for The Walking Dead: The Final Season when it was removed from digital stores following the initial closure announcement, but positive developments have followed since.

Pakistan vs Australia, 1st Test: Hafeez hits hundred as Pakistan dominate Australia
Thanks to Hafeez's century, Pakistan ended the first day of the first Test on 255/3 (90 overs). Recalled all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez could too prove risky for Australian left-handers.

A statement by Skybound reads that it will be taking full ownership of Telltale's series and will finish off this final season (though with an unspecified timeframe). The Walking Dead: The Final Season was abruptly pulled from digital storefronts late last month, just as the second chapter was set to debut; the previously available first chapter was pulled from the PlayStation Store, Xbox Store and Steam. Following the second episode, many fans were left wondering what would happen next and soon they will have their answer. Skybound will continue the game to see it to completion.

It looks like at least one of those potential partners had been Skybound Games, a studio which is not only an offshoot of the company which owns The Walking Dead IP, but one which has a strong history of working with other developers to produce and publish indie titles.
