Closing out the Kind Funny Games Showcase was a surprise announcement. Skybound Games had reformed as much of Telltale as they could under the new studio name Still Not Bitten. In addition to getting back up the first three seasons of The Walking Dead, they had an important announcement. The Walking Dead: The Final Season is back, and more importantly it’ll be here soon. January 15th, to be exact.
The status of The Walking Dead: The Final Season has been in the air since Telltale surprised everyone by closing their doors. While they managed to get two episodes of the season out, half of it, they couldn’t manage the other two. Skybound Games has stepped in however, and have rehired as much of Telltale’s staff as they could with the intention of getting The Final Season completed. This new studio is called Still Not Bitten and they’re well on their way to their promise.
Not only that, but Skybound has gotten the other seasons of The Walking Dead put back on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch after they had to be removed due to licensing issues. They’re still working on the PC version, and said in an e-mail that they will have an update for PC users some time before Broken Toys launches. In addition, they noted that anyone who purchased the original season pass before Telltale went under will still be getting both episode 3 and 4 without having to buy anything new.
The Walking Dead: The Final Season – Episode 3: Broken Toys will launch on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch on January 15th, 2019.
