Telltale Games is dead, but the Stranger Things game lives ⚡⚡⚡ Esports and gaming news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!

The gaming community is still getting over the news about Telltale Games closure. The most successful project of the studio, The Walking Dead, might finish abruptly without a proper finale and we won’t find out how Clementine’s story ends.

 As we know, Telltale Games suddenly laid off about 90% of the staff, keeping a skeletal crew of 25 employees who will fulfil “the company’s obligations to its board and partners.” The press release didn’t specify what those obligations include, but there is an argument to be made, that the remaining Telltale workforce could finish the remaining Minecraft: Story Mode episodes the game adaptation of Stranger Things.

 Polygon asked Netflix to comment on the fate of the games that were planned according to a deal between streaming service and Telltale Games in June. Back then Stranger Things was announced as the first major project that would come out of the partnership.

 Here is what Netflix said in response:

 

—  We are in the process of evaluating other options for bringing the Stranger Things universe to life in an interactive medium.”

 

Netflix also confirmed that Minecraft: Story Mode will be developed by Telltale as previously planned. If Netflix agrees to sponsor the project (they might have to do it anyway), there could still be a chance that the Telltale skeletal crew also will be tasked to work on Stranger Things.

 A couple of other games, that were in the plans for the future, most likely will be transferred to other game studios.
