Skybound Games, the video game division of Skybound Entertainment, has confirmed that Telltale Games' The Walking Dead: The Final Season has resumed development, with Skybound utilising the talents of some of Telltale Games' former staff. 

Skybound Entertainment is best known for creating their long-running "The Walking Dead" comic series, making them the perfect developers to complete Telltale's work. Beyond that, Skybound Games plans to take on former Telltale developers to complete the project, with the studio stating that they want to "finish the story in a way the fans deserve".

The Walking Dead Season 4 will receive two new episodes in the future, episodes 3 and 4, with existing owners of season 4 receiving these new episodes for free, despite the games development changes. Over the next few days, older seasons of Telltale's The Walking Dead series will not be available for purchase on digital platforms, as each title will transition over to Skybound Games. 

Below is Skybound's full update on The Walking Dead: The Final Season's development. 

     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.

Please continue to check back here on our Skybound site for future updates on the game!
