It feels like only yesterday, that Telltale Games closed. One of the most shocking studio closures in recent memory, it left many fans with a lot of questions. Especially in regards to whether or not we would ever see a finish to Telltale’s Walking Dead Final Season. It was announced a while ago that Skybound Entertainment would be taking over the development of the game to bring the series to a conclusion. Today, Skybound released a blog post detailing more information development, and potentially when we could see the final episodes.
“Thank you for your patience while we worked with Telltale to take control of TELLTALE’S THE WALKING DEAD. It’s been a ton of work logistically and legally to get us to a place where we’re able to roll up our sleeves and get to the actual work. After Telltale shut its doors, the game was, unfortunately, unable to be worked on and hence the release dates of Episodes 3 and 4 have been delayed. But, we’re excited to let you know that many of the talented, passionate team members who originally worked on the game are resuming development efforts today!
Soon, we will be announcing release dates for the two remaining episodes. It’s likely that previous seasons of the game may be unavailable to purchase for a few days as we transition—but don’t panic!—we’ll have everything back online ASAP. If you already purchased Season Four, you will NOT have to pay again; future episodes will be available to download as soon as they are released via your original point of purchase.”
It is good to see that some of the Telltale employees were able to transition to Skybound Entertainment for employment. Here is hoping that the development goes smoothly and that all those that were affected by Telltale’s closure have landed on their feet.
