Following the sudden and major layoffs over at Telltale Games, it was no surprise that the unfinished final season of The Walking Dead was pulled from all stores this week.
Unfortunately, it’s looking to be a little too late for those eager fans who went and bought a season pass ahead of time, with no word of refunds in sight. Telltale explained earlier this week that the reason they pulled their final season from sale was because of the uncertain fate surrounding the final two episodes. If they manage to find a way to save them, the game will probably be put back on shelves.
In a statement to Polygon, Telltale Games said:
“Yes, 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.”
With the ending of Clem’s story hanging in the balance, it looks like Telltale Games is trying to get a third party to help push the final two episodes out but there’s been little news on how that’s going for them as of yet.
While it seems like there’s some sort of effort being made for The Walking Dead, it’s looking pretty definite that upcoming projects The Wolf Among Us Season 2 and Stranger Things are canceled seeing as Telltale Games only has a skeleton crew left to work with.
