The Walking Dead: The Final Season is no longer available on digital stores including on PlayStation, Xbox One, Steam, and GOG.
Telltale laid off around 250 employees last Friday, and projects like Stranger Things, The Wolf Among Us 2, and The Walking Dead: The Final Season were effectively halted. However, Telltale announced the following Monday that it was talking with potential partners to help re-start and finish episodes 3 and 4 of The Final Season.
A Telltale spokesperson confirmed to Kotaku that The Final Season was removed until further notice. "Yes, we have removed season passes for The Walking Dead: The Final Season from stores for the time being. We're currently still working to find a way to hand off production of episodes 3 and 4 so that the season can be completed. The outcome of those efforts will determine when and how The Final Season returns to stores. We hope to have a firm announcement before the end of the week. For now, we apologize for any inconvenience."
When Telltale announced that it was looking to complete The Walking Dead's Final Season a weekend after having laid off The Walking Dead team without severance (reports suggest everyone laid off on Friday received no severance) social media became divided over the question of whether laid off employees were going to be compensated. One former employee is taking legal action against Telltale for back pay after accusing the company of ivolating labor laws.
All we know for sure right now is that the story of Telltale games continues to be messy in what seems to be its final days.
