Netflix still intends to make Stranger Things game following Telltale closure

After the devastating news last week that The Walking Dead developer Telltale Games would be closing and operating with a skeleton crew to finish existing obligations, there was much discussion surrounding the future of projects already announced or underway at the studio.

One of those projects was a recently announced collaboration between Telltale and Netflix to work together on a Stranger Things game. Since the collapse of the company, though, Telltale will no longer be involved in the project, but Netflix is still looking at producing an interactive adaptation of the spooky, nostalgia-laden series.

“We are saddened by the news about Telltale Games,” Netflix said in a statement to Polygon. “They developed many great games in the past and left an indelible mark in the industry. Minecraft: Story Mode is still moving forward as planned. We are in the process of evaluating other options for bringing the Stranger Things universe to life in an interactive medium.”

Elsewhere, footage was apparently leaked of a very early in-development build of the Stranger Things game at Telltale. The clips feature Will and Joyce Byers, as well as a frightening hide-and-seek sequence with a Demogorgon. All of the clips and some concept art are available to view on Reddit.

In terms of Telltale’s other work, it’s now become clear that The Wolf Among Us – Season 2 has been cancelled, but there is still some hope that The Walking Dead: The Final Season may be finished in some form, according to a Tweet from the developer. Meanwhile, a collaboration with Netflix on Minecraft: Story Mode will also be fulfilled.
