"we currently have no plans for a Season 5"
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...
Earlier this week, Skybound Games announced it would be hosting a Reddit AMA focused on The Walking Dead: The Final Season. Now that it’s wrapped up, here’s what we found out.

Zombies are impossible to avoid. Not that the living dead are walking among us and causing havoc, but the media has been absolutely permeated by them.
