Telltale Games have used their own engine (Telltale Tool) for quite a while. Ever since 2004, in fact. The engine was getting updates for quite a while too, but it's starting to age badly. Telltale people noticed that as well. That's exactly why they decided to make The Walking Dead: The Final Season the very last game to use the dated engine.

The news came from Variety. As it was reported, people from Telltale games are finally ready to let their 14-year old engine to rest. Minecraft: Story Mode, Batman: The Telltale Series, The Wolf Among Us, and The Walking Dead will be the series to use it.

Telltale Games will switch to the Unity engine. The first games that will adopt it will be Stranger Things and (most likely) The Wolf Among Us 2. It's interesting to add that this news comes right after Telltale was sued by their former boss. Coincidence?

The Walking Dead: The Final Season will arrive in August and that's when we can finally say goodbye to Telltale Tool. Rest in peace buddy.
