There are no plans for a new season of The Walking Dead game, Skybound says

'We currently have no plans for a Season 5'

It looks like it's the end for several Walking Dead properties in this octopus of an IP.

In case you missed it, Robert Kirkman, creator of the original comic, secretly ended the core run in the middle of 2019, after soliciting several fake "future issues" to throw everyone off the scent. Now, it seems like Skybound Games is ready to sunset the game franchise...for now.

Speaking on Twitter and responding to recent rumors about a new season, the official Skybound account noted the following this week: " Thank you to the fans who have reached out in recent days! While we wholeheartedly appreciate your enthusiasm for Telltale's TWD, we currently have no plans for a Season 5."

Following any number of these franchises has been an extreme roller coaster, to say the least. It seems like creatives always start out really well, then as time goes on and the money starts rolling in, that creative control shifts and the series becomes a sort of soulless cash cow. It happened with the game series for a while (and Telltale as a whole, really) and it happened with the TV series (though Angela Kang is trying their best to right the ship).

Perhaps it's for the best that it sunsets for a long period of time.
