The Walking Dead Clementine's Voice Actress Writes Letter Thanking Fans
"No closing of doors will ever take that away."
Telltale announced majority layoffs recently, throwing the fate of several of its series into question. Some reports indicated that The Walking Dead, its longest-running series in the current process of releasing its final season, wouldn't ever be complete. In a letter, that series' thanks fans for their support and laments we may not ever see the end of the story.
Melissa Hutchison is the voice of Clementine, who went from a young girl in the first season to the main protagonist and caretaker in her own right.
"To my knowledge, they will release Episode 2 and that will be it," said Hutchison in a statement on Twitter. "It hurts me that you, the fans, will not get to see Clem's journey through to the end. Telltale games will always be the best narrative, story-driven game company ever. No closing of doors will ever take that away."
In the latest developments, Telltale has said it will give an update on its upcoming roadmap in the coming weeks, but all indications are that most projects have been put on the shelf. The timing is particularly poor for The Walking Dead, which was critically acclaimed in its first season and helped define Telltale as a narrative powerhouse. This final season is in the midst of release, with the second episode coming this week, but we may not see any more after that--which could leave Clementine's story without a proper conclusion.
