It was swift, it was brutal, and it upended the lives of hundreds of employees without warning.

Fortunately there's good news for both players and those who made the game, because Robert Kirkman's Skybound will complete the last season of the game, and they're hoping to work with the former staff of Telltale to do it.In news we first came across atÂ Variety, Kirkman announced at this year's New York Comic Con that Skybound Entertainment, which he founded in 2010, has negotiated to complete The Final Season's remaining episodes and publish them. Furthermore, they plan to use the same team from Telltale that worked on the game originally, though nothing is official yet.
