At New York Comic Con this weekend, Kirkman told an audience that his company Skybound has negotiated with Telltale Games to take over development of The Walking Dead and see it through to completion.

Fortunately, it seems that Skybound will be able to pick up where Telltale left off, since The Walking Dead: The Final Season was almost finished at the time of the studio's closure. The shutdown included major layoffs and closing its major studio.

"We're SO happy to announce that we've reached a deal with Telltale Games that will allow Skybound to continue: The Final Season!".

Kirkman, who created The Walking Dead comics series, says his company Skybound will work with former Telltale developers who had been working on The Walking Dead in order to complete the final season.

Skybound is the owner of The Walking Dead franchise, and was founded by series creator Robert Kirkman back in 2010.
