Skybound keeps details on The Walking Dead: The Final Season's future vague

The Walking Dead license owner Skybound has taken over development of the Final Season of the game from original maker Telltale following its closure - but it's keeping the details really vague.

Speaking to Variety, Skybound Interactive president Dan Murray was asked about the commitments the company has made about hiring back former Telltale staff who lost their jobs last month.

The exec sure isn't giving much in the way of details.

"Human cost"

“The game industry is always filled with challenges. It’s hard making games,” Murray said.

“Whenever something like this comes up, our intention is to try and do the right thing, not just by the brand, but by the fans. This was our chance to do both. It’s also our intention to make sure to do right by the people we were working with.

"This is a business that is made by people, and when things like this happen there is a human cost. We are trying to do what we can to work with the original staff and provide a soft landing.”
