The Walking Dead co-creator Robert Kirkman wants to make sure Telltale Games' Clementine story is told

The Walking Dead co-creator and writer Robert Kirkman told fans that there are efforts underway to resolve the unfinished story of Telltale’s lead character Clementine.

The future of The Walking Dead: The Final Season is in serious doubt after its developer Telltale laid off the majority of its staff before completion.

Speaking at a Q&A session during New York Comic-Con, Kirkman was asked by one audience member if Clementine’s story would be concluded in the long-running comic book series.

The Walking Dead co-creator made no promises but assured a troubled fanbase that the creative minds behind franchise are looking to give the beloved character closure.

"Stay tuned," said Kirkman. "Everyone involved is trying to make sure Clementine's story is told. I'm not concerned at the moment with telling that story in the comics."

Initially, it appeared Telltale was keeping a small skeleton crew aboard to finish vital projects - The Final Season among them. Word later spread that Telltale management was looking for another studio to hire former staff and complete the season.

Now, it appears even that 25-person skeleton crew has been let go. If there’s ever going to be an end to Clementine’s story, Telltale Games is looking less and less likely to be the company to finish it.
