Netflix still wants to make Stranger Things game despite Telltale closure

Streaming giant Netflix’s game adaptation of TV show Stranger Things may yet happen, despite developer Telltale recently announcing its intent to close.

In a statement issued to Polygon, Netflix confirmed it was in the process of evaluating other options regarding bringing the Stranger Things universe to life in the games market.

Netflix and Telltale had revealed their collaboration back in June, but the status of the project was unclear following the studio announcing its intent to close, with 225 staff let go without severance pay.

In a statement on its official Twitter account, Telltale confirmed that a small group of 25 employees were staying on to fulfil the company’s obligations to its board and partners.
