Netflix evaluating other options for Stranger Things game after Telltale closure

A few days ago, Telltale Games announced that the studio was in the process of closing down, and that only 25 employees would remain to finish off a project. One of the games that was in development at the studio was Stranger Things. Unfortunately, the closure resulted in the cancellation of this game, but it seems like Netflix wants to find another partner.

Polygon contacted Netflix and the company said that it was considering other options. This most likely means that the search for a new studio is taking place. The company said the following to the outlet.

We are saddened by news about Telltale Games. They developed many great games in the past and left an indelible mark in the industry. Minecraft: Story Mode is still moving forward as planned. We are in the process of evaluating other options for bringing the Stranger Things universe to life in an interactive medium.

Hopefully Netflix will partner up with another studio to make Stranger Things into a game. There are many qualified companies out there that specialize in interactive adventures. For example, Big Bad Wolf is one of them.

Big Bad Wolf is the team behind The Council. In our review, we said that even "though rough around the edges overall due to some performance issues... The Council has laid a strong foundation for this intriguing story and fun gameplay to continue down the line."
