The Walking Dead: The Final Season Isn't Necessarily Telltale's Last Game With the Series

The Walking Dead

For a while now, Telltale Games has been teasing the conclusion of Clementine’s story in The Walking Dead: The Final Season, which is set to debut in just a few weeks. However, just because this episodic series has a huge emphasis on closure doesn’t necessarily mean it’s the end of the story.

During a recent livestream over at IGN, Telltale creative director Kent Mudle was asked if this five-episode arc would truly wrap everything up. But...it doesn’t quite look that way.

“This season is the end of Clementine’s journey, and that’s as much as I’ll say on that,” he said.

So what does that mean? The trailers have indicated a finish of sorts, but it looks like it’s just Clementine’s wrap-up. There’s a good chance that, considering it’s beneficial for both parties, Telltale’s relationship with Skybound will continue for more stories.

But which direction could they take? Could we see more of Lee’s side of things before the initial season of The Walking Dead began? Could Michonne make a return? Could another character from AMC’s The Walking Dead make their debut? There are possibilities galore.

For the moment though, Telltale is focusing on finishing up Clementine’s tale, and rightfully so. These new screens tell quite a bit, and soon we’ll see even more gameplay from the Final Season.
