Recently it was confirmed that Skybound would be taking over the development duties of Telltale Games’ The Walking Dead series following the studio’s announcement that they would be shutting down. The announcement was sudden which led to many wondering about the state of some of the studio’s games that have yet to be completed.
Now recently in a Reddit AMA, Skybound’s CEO Ian Howe has revealed that the plan is to have the game completed 100% by former Telltale staff. Howe was asked about the transfer of Telltale employees to Skybound, and what percentage they would make of the team that would finish up the game.
According to Howe, “The plan is for it to be staffed 100% by former Telltale staff, the only time we’d look elsewhere is if we can’t fill a particular role from former TT people.” This is good news for those who loved The Walking Dead series and it makes sense as well. After all the former Telltale employees are probably more familiar with the tone and direction that they wanted the game to head towards, so it makes sense to get them to try and complete the game.
However there is no word on when we can expect to see the final two episodes of the game. The previous report claimed that Episode 3 was essentially done and just needs some polishing, so hopefully we won’t have to wait too long, but we’ll keep our eyes and ears peeled all the same.
