There is good news surrounding the final season of Telltale Games’ The Walking Dead. Developers at the studio now in charge of the series, Skybound Entertainment, say they’re moving forward with production of the final episodes. Skybound announced the team is hard at work in the development process.
“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!”
The team at Skybound thanked fans for their patience while they take control of the series and make sure it gets the ending it deserves. Telltale Games shut down their studios in September. Creator of The Walking Dead comic book series, Robert Kirkman, announced at San Diego Comic-Con that his company will be taking over the development of the game series. Skybound said in a statement posted to their official site on November 19, 2018.
“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. 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!”
Since Telltale’s closure, earlier seasons of The Walking Dead have been removed from digital stores. Skybound announced fans will be able to access the games again as soon as possible.
The team at Skybound also wants fans to know they don’t have to worry about paying twice for the final episodes, saying, if they paid for the two remaining episodes, they will not have to pay again.
Any and all content concerning the future episodes of the final season for The Walking Dead will be announced on Skybound’s official website. No release dates for the last remaining episodes have been released.
