Skybound Games to Finish Telltale’s The Walking Dead

After the studio’s liquidation, Telltale’s The Walking Dead has risen again thanks to Skybound Games.

Skybound Entertainment was founded in 2010, and has been involved with comics, television, and games. The company is imprinted by Image Comics, who produce The Walking Dead comic.

Posting on the official Skybound Entertainment website, Sally Jacka explains:

“Thank you for your patience while we worked with Telltale to take control of TELLTALE’S THE WALKING DEAD. 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. 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!

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.

Please continue to check back here on our Skybound site for future updates on the game!”

We’ll keep you guys posted.

UPDATE: We have received word that is pausing sales of some The Walking Dead games. The following message appears in the About section of The Walking Dead: The Final Season:

Telltale has requested a temporary pause of sales of The Walking Dead – Final Season. For all up to date Telltale news, please refer to their official Twitter page.

In addition, users have reported seeing the following message. The same message was also posted by “chandra” of GOG on the official forums:
