Telltale Games has announced this week that Gary Whitta (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) will be returning to Telltale’s The Walking Dead for the fourth and final season.
Whitta will be returning as a Story Consultant for Season Four of Telltale’s The Walking Dead which is currently titled The Walking Dead: The Final Season. Whitta isn’t a stranger to the series as he was a part of the BAFTA Award-winning team of writers for the very first season where we were introduced to Clementine and her heartbreaking story.
Since the launch of the first season, The Walking Dead: A Telltale Games Series has gone onto sell more than 50 million episodes worldwide and earned itself more than 100 Game of the Year awards. The series also helped pave the way for a number of other Telltale Games Series featuring properties such as Minecraft and Batman.
“Collaborating with Telltale on the first season of Clementine’s journey through the world of The Walking Dead was one of the highlights of my career, so reuniting with them to now bring her story to a close with this final season feels like a homecoming,” said Whitta. “Clementine has become not just one of the most compelling characters in the Walking Dead pantheon but one of the great video game characters of all time. I hope we’re able to do justice to her and to her millions of fans. This one feels special.”
For those yet to get into the series, Telltale has also announced the launch of The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series Collection, a bundle of the first three seasons as well as the 400 Days anthology and Michonne mini-series, coming in 2018.
“Clementine has meant so much to fans since the series premiered in 2012,” said Melissa Hutchison, the award-winning actress behind the iconic character. “It’s incredible to see this series collection arriving all in one place for players to relive the journey or catch up on her tragic tale of survival before we head into the final chapters of her storyline next year.”
The Walking Dead: The Final Series is set to land sometime in 2018.
