With Telltale Games laying off almost most of their employees, many fans were concerned over the fate of The Walking Dead: The Final Season. The day of the layoffs, it was reported that Telltale would not finish the season but finish their work on The Minecraft Story for Netflix. Fans were heavily disappointed considering The Walking Dead was Telltales biggest game and many were invested in the life of Clementine, the main character. However, it looks like Telltale will continue making The Walking Dead.

Telltale hasn’t state who “the partners” are or when the the new episodes are expected to launch. Despite the good news, many people are pushing Telltale games to pay the laid off employees severance. Over 200 employees were suddenly released from Telltale without severance pay. Without future notice, one former employee is filing a class action lawsuit.
The future of Telltale remains to be unclear but hopefully the employees are compensated accordingly.
