While many video game rumours turn out to be true, a lot of them also end up getting completely out of control. One that's gained traction over the past week is about a potential fifth season of the Skybound and Telltale Games' video game series, The Walking Dead. It was even believed to be called "A Fatal Frontier".
In a post over on The Walking Dead game subreddit, Skybound VP of Online Content Brian Huntingdon explained how the team normally let speculation go, but in this particular case felt the need to speak up to confirm the "leak" was fake before things got out of hand. The official Skybound Twitter account followed this up:
One fan asked Huntingdon if season five had even been considered, and what the overall chances of it happening were. The Skybound official said it was "very unlikely" and that taking over season four was crazy enough:
I never say never in these parts, but how close can you get to zero? Especially in these crazy times, very unlikely. Taking over development to finish Season 4 was crazy, especially for us since we're not a development house.
So, there you have it Walking Dead fans - season five won't be happening and the associated rumours and leaks are fake.
How do you feel about this news - were you hoping for a fifth season of TWD? Would you like to see more companies shutdown rumours like this before they gain traction online? Leave a comment below.
I know it's not going to happen, but I'd prefer a BTTF season 2 if we get any "future" games under the Telltale brand.
Time to put the entire TWD IP and all its knockoffs out to pasture .
TWD franchise needs a proper conclusion.
Holy hell people, give Clem a break.
Not a fan of this whole obsession with sequels, even for perfectly wrapped up stories. Let things just run their course.
I miss Clem, but I think that game series is all done now. Let it rest.
Sounds like this has run to it's end now...
Especially as they say that finishing series 4 in itself was "crazy" and that they "are not a development house".. Chances of a fifth series seem extreamly unlikely.
I thought there would t be new season as this is called the final season
Mehh the final season wasn't that good anyways. Telltale also lost a bunch of money on this franchise only the first season actually made a profit.
So yeah better let it die than dissapoint further.
Fan entitlement is a mental disorder.
I wish to be part 5 I'm addicted to this game please do part 5 I'm willing to pay $ 1 billion please
