Telltale seems to be stuck with various problems recently including with The Walking Dead Final Season which is no longer available for purchase on online platforms such as PlayStation Store, Steam, Xbox Live and more.
Though it was reported yesterday that the second episode of The Walking Dead Final season will be launched today but it doesn’t look like it’ll happen. GOG.com posted a note on their site indicating that Telltale has told them to pause the sales.
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.
As of right now, the game is only available for purchase on Nintendo eShop but we think it will be removed from there as well. This most probably means that Telltale is unsure about their future so they are preventing any further disappointments. Buying the whole season means you are going to get every episode and it currently looks like to not happen anytime soon and will result in a false advertisement, so pausing sales is definitely a better step for the company.
Pausing sales will also give time to Telltale games to work on the remaining episodes. There’s no information regarding physical copies of the game as the November release is near and we don’t know whether it will still happen or not.
This could all be avoided if Telltale manages to work with those who are willing to help them in finishing these episodes and it’s obviously a better choice for the fans to have it rather than absolutely not.
Telltale might finish all the episodes but it will take longer time than everyone expects but if you are interested in buying the game after this all controversy then you will have to wait until Telltale makes the game available again for purchase.
As for the former employees, one of them has filed a lawsuit against Telltale because there was no warning given for this sudden closure. Everyone is expecting Telltale to pay their former employees first including Cory Barlog.
