One of our first projects at Skybound was Telltale’s The Walking Dead. It’s something we’ve been very closely involved in since it’s inception, a big piece of Skybound’s history, and a series that we hold dear to our hearts. After Telltale Games’ announcement, many fans were left wondering if they’d see the end of the saga they’d invested so much time in.
This didn’t just affect us as partners—we were among those fans. Since Telltale’s closure notice, we’ve been spending long hours figuring out if we could help complete this game. And as of today, we are VERY pleased to announce that we are taking on the job of finishing The Walking Dead: The Final Season and seeing an end to Clem’s story line, while working with with members of the original Telltale team.
We’re currently ironing out some of the details as this is a pretty major deal, so we’ll have more info on the who/what/where/when/how very soon as those details are finalized. We appreciate your patience during this process. Thank you to the fans for being so supportive of this series and vocal about wanting to see Clementine’s story continue! We’re going to do right by you (and also for ourselves, because WE want to play it too!).

Telltale's The Walking Dead: The Final season to be completed by Skybound Games
Skybound Entertainment is best known for creating their long-running "The Walking Dead" comic series, making them the perfect developers to complete Telltale's work. Beyond that, Skybound Games plans to take on former Telltale developers to complete the project, with the studio stating that they want to "finish the story in a way the fans deserve".
Last month, Telltale Games was forced to lay off the majority of the developer's staff, forcing future projects like The Wolf Among Us 2 and a game based on Netflix' Stranger Things IP to be cancelled.
Below is Skybounds full statement regarding their plans to complete season 4/"The Final Season" of Telltale's The Walking Dead, including their plans to work with former Telltale developers.
Creator Robert Kirkman announced during The Walking Dead New York Comic Con 2018 panel that Skybound will be taking on the rest of Telltale’s TWD game following their plans to close last month. “We’ve successfully negotiated with Telltale Games for our company Skybound to come in and see Season 4 of the Telltale game to completion,” Kirkman announced to the crowd. “We can’t lose Andrew Lincoln and Clementine in the same year.”
