Skybound Entertainment has announced that development on the remaining episodes in The Walking Dead: The Final Season has resumed.
This news comes after Telltale Games had suffered “majority studio closure” and Skybound Entertainment stepped in to see the season through to completion, which, they have now added, has seen “many” of the original team members return to work on the last two 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,” Skybound Entertainment social media manager Johnny O’Dell explained in an update.
“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.”
