Today, the new developers of The Walking Dead Final Season made a surprise announcement. Skybound Games, the studio founded by Robert Kirkman, revealed a release date for the next epidose.
“Broken Toys” will be available across PC, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PS4 a little over a week from now, on January 15th. The release date was accompanied by a trailer for the new epidose:
Telltale Games just recently shut down production on all of its titles, including the final season of The Walking Dead. This is after the company made a rather shocking bankruptcy announcement, followed by massive layoffs.
However, Skybound Games took over the project and does intend to complete the final season. At the 2018 Game Awards, Skybound announced the final season would become an Epic Games Store exclusive.
Season Pass owners are exempt from the exclusivity, so Steam users can still get the episodes they paid for. Anyone who wishes to purchase the episodes now can do so via the Epic Games Store.
The final episode, titled “ Take Us Back”, doesn’t currently have a release date. If Skybound sticks with Telltale’s release schedule, we should see it within the next several months.
