Skybound Games, who have acquired rights to develop and finish Telltale Games' The Walking Dead game series, have announced the release date for their first in-house episode in the game series. Titled "Broken Toys", the third episode in the season of four will showcase Skybound's ability to execute on the tale started and guided by Telltale. It won't be the time to finally finish our companionship with Clementine, but the second-to-last step will be available come January 15th.
It's been quite a ride for fans of the series (and Telltale Games' games, in essence), after the company has practically crumbled under its own weight, leaving greatly-executed (and some not-so-greatly executed) explorations of a myriad franchises in their wake. However, with Skybound games and Robert Kirkman behind the saving of one of Teltale's most beloved franchises, expectations are set for a rewarding, full-circle closure of Clementine's story. Afterwards, maybe The Walking Dead will finally see some well-deserved rest.ETeknix
