With news that Telltale Games was facing closure, initially it was thought that The Walking Dead: The Final Season would have been cancelled. Now, it looks like episodes 3 and 4 could be released in the near future after all.
Telltale Games announced the following over on its official Twitter account: “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 for other questions soon.”
This is good news since it was initially feared that episodes 3 and 4 would have never been made. Now it looks like Telltale Games is making sure the final episodes get made. This does not mean the company itself is revived, but at least The Walking Dead: The Final Season will actually see a proper conclusion.
If you are interested in playing The Walking Dead: The Final Season, below is a small synopsis as seen in a press release.
