Developer Telltale announced the release of The Walking Dead Collection – a bundle featuring all 19 episodes of the adventure game, spanning multiple seasons. More interestingly however, they confirmed that writer Gary Whitta will be returning for the fourth and final season.
Whitta penned some of the critically acclaimed first season, including Episode 4: Around Every Corner, and DLC episode 400 Days. More recently, Whitta is known for co-writing Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
"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 in a press release. "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."
The final season is slated to arrive in 2018.
Apart from featuring every episode, The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series Collection will also be visually remastered. You can check out the trailer above for some comparison shots.
