Back in October, Skybound Games announced that they would finish The Walking Dead: The Final Season after Telltale’s closure. An update posted yesterday announced that production has resumed and release dates will be announced soon.
Delisted episodes returning, as well
In the update, Sally Jacka wrote the following:
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.
Back when it announced that they would be finishing The Walking Dead: The Final Season, Skybound CEO Ian Howe said in a Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything) that they would try to get some former Telltale staff working on the game. They won’t be able to get all of them, but hopefully they can finish what they created.
