The Voice of Clementine from The Walking Dead Weighs In On Telltale Games Shutdown

Fans are still reeling over the fact Telltale Games closed and will no longer be working on the final season of the popular The Walking Dead game. The series has struck a chord with fans especially with the games main protagonist, Clementine. Over five seasons fans have watched the character grow up and were promised a definitive ending to Clem’s story.

With Telltale Game now closing up, the series has been declared canceled. During the mass layoffs at Telltale, the team of developers who worked on the game was unceremoniously laid off before the series could be completed. Now even the voice actress who portrayed Clementine has weighed in on The Walking Dead game cancelation.

Per Game Rant:

Voice actress Melissa Hutchison – famous for her portrayal of several popular Telltale Games characters such as The Walking Dead’s Clementine – has now shared her disappointment regarding the current state of the developer. In her rather detailed address, she indicated that Friday was a particularly difficult day and that she too remains unsure about the future of The Walking Dead: Final Season.

Melissa Hutchison released this statement and tweet:

While it is known that more than 90% of the Telltale Games team have been retrenched, a skeleton crew consisting of 25 people have been retained with the purpose of completing the developer’s final commitments to the board as well as other outside parties. Currently, it is widely thought that this team has been kept back to finish Minecraft: Story Mode for Netflix and that all other projects have been canceled. This includes The Walking Dead: Final Season (which has a second episode scheduled for next week), The Wolf Among Us Season 2, and a Stranger Things title.
