Telltale Games is pretty much gone, but thanks to Skybound Games, The Walking Dead: The Final Season will still be completed. In a recent update, Skybound’s social media representative Johnny O’Dell revealed that development has resumed on the title. Though Episodes 3 and 4 have been delayed from their original release dates, many of the original team members from Telltale are working hard to get them ready.

“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,” he wrote. “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!”

He also noted that the next two episodes would have their release dates announced soon. Furthermore, The Walking Dead’s previous seasons should be available in online stores “ASAP.” “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.”

Telltale Games announced in September that it was facing a “majority studio closure” and laid off a number of employees, before cancelling projects like Stranger Things and The Wolf Among Us: Season 2. The studio proceeded to shop The Walking Dead: The Final Season around for other studios to pick up, and eventually, Skybound Games – a division of Skybound Entertainment, founded by The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman – took charge.
