The voice actress behind The Walking Dead heroine Clementine has indicated that development of The Final Season has been scrapped following news of Telltale Games' impending closure.
Writing on Twitter, Melissa Hutchinson expressed her thanks to fans of the narrative-based zombie drama, and noted that while she isn't privy to the official word on the future of The Final Season, things aren't looking too optimistic right now.
'I, unfortunately, like most of you, do not have the details on how this all came to be and I also do not know the fate of the final season of TWD,' she commented.
'To my knowledge, they will release Episode 2 and then that will be it. It hurts me that you, the fans, will not get to see Clem’s journey through to the end. It hurts me that all of the insanely talented people who made this game won’t get to see all of their hard work played out, and are instead thrust into now having to look for work.'
Telltale announced Friday that they were beginning a 'majority studio closure' following a series of major layoffs.
While originally it was thought that the remaining 25 employees would be polishing off work on The Final Season, anonymous sources have since come to suggest that this is no longer the case. Hutchinson's statement further adds credence to claims that The Walking Dead has been cancelled without wrapping up Clementine's final journey.
At the time of writing, we still have no idea what will become of The Wolf Among Us Season Two and Stranger Things, though it appears they've been shelved too.
