Today Skybound Games announced at New York Comic Con that Telltale’s The Walking Dead: The Final Season will be completed.

The publisher founded by Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman echoed the announcement on Twitter.

An article on Variety also mentions that the company will work with members of the original team to finish the story and complete the fourth season of the popular game series. Kirkman himself said at New York Comic Con that  “We can’t lose Andrew Lincoln and Clementine in the same year.”

While details of the deal have not been finalized or announced, so we don’t know what will happen to those who will continue working on the game series after it’s completed, at the very least this is a spot of good news in a rather sad situation.

Things started going downhill last month with most of the Telltale team facing layoffs without warning, following by the official announcement of the closure of the company. Everything culminated a few days ago when the remaining skeleton crew was also fired.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
