Taking to Twitter, the studio wrote: “Hi everyone we have a Walking Dead update for you.
“Multiple potential partners have stepped forward to express interest in helping see The Final Season through to completion.
“While we can’t make any promises today, we are actively working towards a solution that will allow episodes 3 and 4 to be completed and released in some form.
“In the meantime, episode 2 will release tomorrow across all platforms as planned.
“We hope to have answers for your other questions soon.”
Of course, Twitter had a lot to say, but most people are concerned about the staff at Telltale who’ve lost their jobs…
Even God of War‘s Cory Barlog weighed in, tweeting: “I would hope this means that you will first pay your entire team their severance, and then proceed to finish the final episodes. ”
I would hope this means that you will first pay your entire team their severance, and then proceed to finish the final episodes. I would be fine waiting however long it took to ensure we first treated those who worked so hard with the humanity and respect they deserve.❤️

The closure of Telltale Games has left hundreds without jobs, and as the gaming industry struggles with the news of its closure, Twitter is working hard to connect individuals to the right companies.
to the people excitedly replying to this thread: i love these games too, but the people whose work you love are no longer making them. they were unjustly fired with no warning and no severance.
the company is just a name and those who made this decision now. don’t support this

DICE, Epic Games, Naughty Dog Blizzard and more have come out in support of helping those affected to find new roles. Let’s hope they do!
