Following the "majority studio closure" of Telltale Games last week, the future of many of its planned projects has been up in the air. Rumors suggest that The Walking Dead: The Final Season has been canceled, incomplete, while The Wolf Among Us 2 has been scrapped entirely. Also on the chopping block is the much-anticipated Netflix partnership for a game version of Stranger Things. And to rub salt into the wound, clips of what the game could have looked like have now emerged on Reddit (admittedly from a random user, but we're pretty sure they're legit -- it'd take a lot of work to mock these up). As you can see, it's a bit of a departure from Telltale's usual artistic style.
It's not all bad news, though. In a statement released to Polygon, Netflix said it was "evaluating other options for bringing the Stranger Things universe to life in an interactive medium." So it's likely that a game in some shape or form will arrive eventually. Netflix has a lot of pull, and Stranger Things is one of its most popular franchises yet. It won't be too difficult to find a studio willing to pick it up.
