Video Game Developer Telltale Games Is Shutting Down; THE WALKING DEAD And STRANGER THINGS Games Cancelled

The Walking Dead: The Final Season will reportedly end after episode two as Telltale puts a skeleton crew on Minecraft: Story Mode. Netflix comments on the future of its Stranger Things game.

The gaming community was thrown for a loop this week when it was reported that Telltale Games, developers of episodic adventure games like The Walking Dead, Batman: The Enemy Within, Game of Thrones and more, is shutting down. Numerous reports of massive layoffs spread throughout social media before Telltale finally confirmed the reports with a message from CEO Pete Hawley.

While it was initially reported that the 25-person skeleton crew would remain to finish on board to finish The Walking Dead: The Final Season, it appears that has been scrapped as well. According to USGamer's Matt Kim, Telltale has cancelled TWD: The Final Season and will instead remain working on Minecraft: Story Mode for Netflix. Episode two of The Final Season, which is due out next week, will reportedly be the last of the series.

Telltale was also supposed to be working on a new Stranger Things game for Netflix as well, but it seems has been cancelled as well. In a statement provided to Variety, Netflix revealed they are looking for other ways to bring the Stranger Things universe to life in the interactive space.

We are saddened by the news about Telltale Games - they developed many great games in the past and left an indelible mark in the industry. Minecraft: Story Mode is still moving forward as planned. We are in the process of evaluating other options for bringing the Stranger Things universe to life in an interactive medium.


The Walking Dead: The Finale Season - Episode 2 "Suffer the Children" will release on September 25. Obviously, this is incredibly sad news for everyone involved and our hearts go out to all of those affected by the layoffs.
