Telltale’s sticky situation, to put it mildly, meant that every single project they were working out (outside of Minecraft: Story mode for Netflix) was cancelled all at once, and while this means the fan-pleasing prospect of The Wolf Among Us Season 2 won’t ever see the light of day, it also means that The Walking Dead: The Final Season, which was already underway, won’t see the light of day.
At least, that’s what you’d expect when the entire development team for the series is laid off, but Telltale’s Twitter account has offered a ray of hope:

Of course, given the manner in which Telltale let their employees go, without even giving severance pay, God of War director Cory Barlog’s reply is pretty much on the button:
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.❤️
