Telltale's remains are still twitching, as it turns out! In a recent tweet, the former adventure game developer has announced that there are, in fact, plans to wrap up The Walking Dead: The Final Season.
However, pro-videogame union group Game Workers Unite have slammed the move, calling it "disgusting" and saying that if Telltale has the money to finish The Walking Dead, they have the money to pay their workers severance pay.
In a recent tweet, Telltale Games have let loose the info that they've been in contact with "multiple potential partners" who may yet help in finishing the final season of the zombie-themed adventure series. According to this tweet, a solution is actively being worked on.
That being said, Game Workers Unite, a grassroots organisation dedicated to safeguarding video game developers' rights as workers, has railed against Telltale: "This is disgusting," they said. "Pay your 250+ previous employees' severance."
This is disgusting. Pay your 250+ previous employees' severance. https://t.co/VscGNrKWi0— Game Workers Unite (@GameWorkers) September 25, 2018
Game Workers Unite have also mentioned that The Walking Dead's finale can't possibly be the game that it was supposed to be "without the craft and care of the workers who were fired." Further, they've also said that, if Telltale can afford any sort of partnership and continue the production of The Walking Dead, they might also be misrepresenting their real financial outlook, and perhaps even violating the Californian rule of law.
We'll keep a close eye on things as they develop, but the options aren't looking good either way.
