The Wolf Among Us 2 is one of the most awaited sequel games. Back in 2013, fans wanted more from Telltale after the success of The Walking Dead. People realize there is a market for interactive movies because of its success. In a world were online multiplayer games are dominating, this series proves there is still market for single player games.
The answer to the question in the headline is “it depends on your definition of ‘revived’.” A company called LCG Entertainment has purchased the name and brand of Telltale, and is looking into buying back many of the former outlet’s output. So something that calls itself Telltale Games will exist, just like something that calls itself Atari exists in France. But it will never be the same company again — those guys are gone.
Telltale’s The Walking Dead series has had a long and bumpy road to completion, but you’ll at last be able to slip the entire saga onto your shelf as one solid package. Or at least slip the digital copy into your hard drive folder, depending on your preference. Digital preorders for the game have opened today, for all platforms.
Telltale’s The Walking Dead series has had a long and bumpy road to completion. Its future was in question when its parent company collapsed, suspending development of all its signature point-and-click adventure stories. Some of them were removed from digital marketplaces, and it looked like The Walking Dead would share that fate until Skybound Games, part of Robert Kirkman’s own production company, stepped in. They gathered much of the original team from Telltale and completed the final season.
If you go to the XBox 360 marketplace this week and look up the serialized video game Minecraft Story Mode, you might get a little sticker shock. Okay, more of a lighting bolt frying your brain — $99.99 is the tag.
Telltale’s The Walking Dead is at last complete. And while it’s possible now to buy the entire series separately, Skybound Entertainment is preparing the ultimate Limited Edition — the Telltale Definitive Series — for those who can’t get enough.
Today is the day some thought would never come: the day Telltale’s The Walking Dead becomes a complete, finished product with a definitive ending. If you need an explanation why, Telltale Games’ adaption of the Walking Dead comic book hasn’t had the smoothest development ride — it had to survive no less than the complete destruction of its developer.
We don’t feel so good. Thanos, God of Bankruptcy, raised his Infinity Gauntlet this afternoon and snapped his fingers — and now the library of titles produced by Telltale Games appear to be vanishing into dust.
A giant shockwave hit the gaming newsfeed Friday afternoon with reports that Telltale Games was filing for bankruptcy and would cease operations immediately. Their entire payroll was let go that very day save for 25 people, who were being kept on to finish up an unspecified project.
Telltale Games have become world-renowned experts at taking story-rich properties and mining them for their full potential, whether the property is as obscure as Fables or as permanently zeitgeisty as Batman. Now they’re going back in time (no, not Back to the Future…they already did that one) to the early 80s — the era of creepy creatures, mirror dimensions, children with destructive psychic powers, and shoulder pads. Ah, the memories.
It may be hard to believe, but TellTale Games first launched their Walking Dead saga back in 2012. Since then, video games have evolved quite a bit, and so, with the final season of the series coming next year, the team decided to do something special. They were going to combine every single episode from the main game and the spinoffs and upgrade them for players. Thus is born The Walking Dead Collection.
Today, TellTale Games revealed that the final episode of their Guardians of the Galaxy series is coming out on November 7th. The episode is called “Don’t Stop Believin”, and will wrap up all storylines within the game. Given that they’re calling this the “final episode”, it may be that they won’t come back to this group after the season wraps up. Hard to say at present.
