Skybound Games Will Be Finishing The Walking Dead: The Final Season

Finally, we have a bit of good news relating to the recent Telltale closure saga. With the studio’s closure, the fate of the remaining half of The Walking Dead: The Final Season hung in the balance, though the studio has been working to find a studio to finish it. All those efforts have paid off as Skybound Games announced this weekend that they had reached a deal with Telltale to finish the two unreleased episodes.

Skybound Games, a division of The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman’s Skybound Entertainment, has previously brought Slime Rancher and The Long Dark to retail stores on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. No further details have been revealed for The Walking Dead: The Final Season as of yet, but Skybound says to expect more soon.

Telltale’s The Walking Dead: The Final Season Has Been Pulled From Sale


Telltale’s closure announcement couldn’t have come at a worse time for fans of The Walking Dead. The Walking Dead: The Final Season is only halfway completed but, due to the coming closure, will not currently be finished. There is hope, but only if another company swoops in to finish the remaining two episodes. As a result of this inability to complete the promised content, sales of The Walking Dead: The Final Season have been indefinitely halted across digital platforms.

Telltale posted the following on the game’s Steam page:

ATTENTION: We have removed season passes for The Walking Dead: The Final Season from stores for the time being. We’re currently still working to find a way to hand off production of episodes 3 and 4 so that the season can be completed. The outcome of those efforts will determine when and how The Final Season returns to stores. We hope to have a firm announcement before the end of the week. For now, we apologize for any inconvenience.

While it may seem like an obvious move, it’s nice to see Telltale looking out for potential consumers, protecting them from buying a half-finished product. Now if only they
would look out for their former employees as well.

Telltale Still Hopes to Complete The Walking Dead

Last week, Telltale Games announced that they are closing down due to financial woes and lackluster sales. A small skeleton crew remains employed at the company in order to finish Minecraft: Story Mode, their co-production with Netflix. All other planned titles, including second seasons of The Wolf Among Us and Game of Thrones, were reportedly canceled.

However, they kept mum on their current project, The Walking Dead: The Final Season. With only two episodes released, the second half of the game remains incomplete. Even the voice actress of Clementine, Melissa Hutchinson, was unaware of the game’s future. But after much anticipation, Telltale released a statement via their Twitter on the fate of the ultimate The Walking Dead episodes.

“Hi everyone, we have a Walking Dead update for you. Multiple potential partners have stepped forward to express interest in helping to see The Final Season through to completion. While we can’t make any promises today, we are actively working towards a solution that will allow episodes 3 and 4 to be completed and released in some form. In the meantime, episode 2 will release tomorrow across all platforms as planned. We hope to have answers to your other questions soon.”

The statement remains vague about when the episodes will be released. Their use of “in some form” also calls into question whether the episodes will be video games at all, and perhaps Telltale will simply release cinematic episodes in order to complete the story. It’s also entirely possible that Telltale will pass on development to another company, or that they will use outside resources to keep their skeleton crew together until they can finish both Minecraft and The Walking Dead.

Speculation aside, only time will tell when and how Clementine’s story be completed. But, at the very least, it now sounds like it probably will be completed.
