The final two episodes of Telltale’s The Walking Dead: The Final Season are on the way, but you’re going to have to wait longer to play them. Skybound, which is finishing the episodes after Telltale collapsed, confirmed that Episodes 3 and 4 have been delayed.
This is due in part to the fact that no work could be done on them in the time after Telltale closed and Skybound sorted out the logistics and legalities of starting production again.
“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,” Skybound said in a statement.
It was also confirmed that, as reported, a number of former Telltale developers will be working on Episodes 3 and 4 to see the season finished up. Work began today, November 19.
Skybound, which is Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman’s media company, said it will announce the release dates for Episodes 3 and 4 “soon.” The company also said previous Walking Dead seasons may vanish from storefronts “for a few days” due to the transition from Telltale to Skybound, though everything should be back to normal “ASAP.” What’s more, those who already bought The Final Season won’t have to pay again, thankfully.
In other recent news, Telltale is now officially closing down; the studio has enlisted the help of an outside company to oversee the liquidation of Telltale’s remaining assets.
