The Walking Dead: the Final Season disappears from digital stores
After laying off 90% of its workforce and canceling its development projects, the next chapter in the Telltale Games disaster is the disappearance of its latest game, The Walking Dead: The Final Season, of digital distribution platforms.
The Walking Dead: The Final Season was the episodic adventure that would end Clementine’s story arc, which began in 2012 with the award-winning The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series. The first episode was published in August, and yesterday the second episode arrived. The other two who were to complete the season may never arrive.
Throughout today the game has been removed from the catalog of almost all digital stores, including Steam, GOG.com, the PlayStation Store and Xbox Store. It’s still available on the Nintendo eShop right now, but that will surely change in a matter of hours.
As explained on the product page on GOG, “Telltale has requested a temporary stoppage of sales for The Walking Dead: The Final Season.”
The study itself later confirmed to Polygon that “yes, we have removed The Walking Dead: The Final Season season passes from digital stores for now.” They also claim “to be currently working on ways to cede production of episodes 3 and 4 so that the season can be finalized.”
