Telltale Games

Earlier this week, Telltale began to pull The Walking Dead: The Final Season from digital storefronts. The same can now be said of Switch as well. Just like other platforms, The Walking Dead: The Final Season is no longer available to purchase on the eShop. Anyone who visits the listing will see the message: “Not Available for Purchase”.

Telltale has said in a statement that The Final Season is being temporarily removed as it looks into how it can hand off the remaining two episodes to another company. According to Telltale, “The outcome of those efforts will determine when and how The Final Season returns to stores.”

The Walking Dead: The Final Season is in a state of flux at the moment. The first episode arrived as planned on August 14, with the next episode scheduled for tomorrow. But due to the closure of Telltale Games, the rest of the season has been up in the air.

Telltale doesn’t want to make any promises, but the studio just said on Twitter that the company is “actively working towards a solution that will allow episodes 3 and 4 to be completed and released in some form.” This was after various “potential partners have stepped forward to express interest in helping to see The Final Season through to completion.”

News about the situation surrounding Telltale Games continue to surface. After the company confirmed a “majority studio closure”, USgamer and Game Informer are reporting that The Walking Dead: The Final Season has been cancelled and the team has been laid off. That means the series will not be finished.

Telltale just announced this week that the second episode of The Walking Dead: The Final Season would be launching next Tuesday. While it appears that will still happen, the remaining two episodes will not be released.

Telltale is apparently finishing up its deal with Netflix for Minecraft: Story Mode. After that, it looks like the studio will be finished.

Telltale has released an official statement following reports of turmoil at the studio today. The company is experiencing a “majority studio closure” due to “a year marked by insurmountable challenges.”

Telltale adds that it will have information about its product portfolio “in the coming weeks.”

Reports are emerging regarding serious trouble at Telltale, developer of The Walking Dead and Batman adventure games, among others. The company is facing significant layoffs, with some outlets claiming that the company could be closing entirely.

Forbes’ Joe Parlock says that Telltale is seeing “a total closure due to bankruptcy.” Only a “skeleton crew” remains at the company to complete The Walking Dead: The Final Season and will then be shuttered.

The Walking Dead: The Final Season premiered on Switch last month. The next episode will arrive on September 25, Telltale Games announced today.

Here’s a trailer:

The Walking Dead: The Final Season will end with two more episodes after next week’s release.

Telltale Games will release Batman: The Enemy Within on Switch next month. It’ll be available digitally in both North America and Europe starting October 2.

Here’s a brief introduction and trailer:

Telltale Games has confirmed that a physical release will be offered for The Walking Dead: The Final Season. While we don’t have a release date just yet, Telltale says that other platforms will include the first two episodes with the ability to download the remaining two episodes. It’s unclear if the company is waiting to bundle all of the episodes together for the physical version on Switch.

The first episode of The Walking Dead: The Final Season is out now on the eShop. Other episodes will follow throughout the rest of the year.

During a panel at PAX West 2018, Telltale Games debuted a first look at The Walking Dead: The Final Season’s second episode. Check out a clip showing “Suffer the Children” below.

The Walking Dead: The Final Season debuted on Switch this month. However, previous entries in the series never made it to a Nintendo system. Telltale will begin to remedy that starting next week.

Switch owners will be able to purchase The Walking Dead: The Complete First Season on Switch starting August 28. It includes all five original episodes, as well as add-on anthology 400 Days. According to Telltale, “Both have been ported from last year’s The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series Collection, which offered substantial visual and performance enhancements over previous editions.” These have been brought over to The Complete First Season on Switch.
