Skybound brings on ex-Telltale staff for TWD: The Final Season

If you’ve kept your ears even relatively close to the ground, then you’ve heard about Telltale Games shutting down. Thankfully, last month Skybound Entertainment put forward their initiative to finish the remaining episodes in The Walking Dead: The Final Season.

Well, there’s been an update that will brighten the gloomy situation. Skybound Entertainment has brought on a large amount of the ex-Telltale staff to finish the project, the company announced on their website.

We’re excited to let you know that many of the talented, passionate team members who originally worked on the game are resuming development efforts today,” said Johnny O’Dell of Skybound.

You won’t have to pay again

Skybound has said that the final two episode release dates will soon be announced. Plus, if you’ve already paid for the entire final season, they’ve stressed that you will not have to pay again.

All in all, this is great news! I personally was worried about a lot of the staff there. I’m glad the industry so quickly supported those who fell on hard times. What do you think? Are you excited for the newly renewed final season? Let us know down in the comments.
