When are the final episode of The Walking Dead coming out? Any update on the games?
When Telltale Games went under, it caused a lot of confusion for what was going to happen next. This went especially for The Walking Dead, as the final season was underway and yet it was “canceled” because the team had to close the studio.
Enter Skybound Games, founded by Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman, who picked up the rights so that the games could be finished. And now, it appears as though work has begun on them. For they released this statement today:
“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.”
Stay tuned for more details.
