The Walking Dead Final Season Cancelled

Earlier this evening, news broke that Telltale Games has laid off 285 employees, effectively closing the developer down. However, initial reports suggested that a "skeleton crew" was being kept on to finish up the final season of The Walking Dead, but now new reports are saying that isn't actually the case.

Sources have told USGamer that the aforementioned skeleton crew isn't working on The Walking Dead -- it's in fact working on the "Minecraft Story Mode project for Netflix". This means that the remaining episodes of the final season of The Walking Dead have been cancelled alongside The Wolf Among Us 2 and Telltale's planned adaptation of Stranger Things.

It's unclear what Telltale's plan of action is for those who have bought the episode pass for the final season of The Walking Dead, but we'll keep you updated once we know more.
