First reported on Gamasutra, Starbreeze CFO Sebastian Ahlskog explains,

“We have initiated a review of our costs to ensure better alignment with our revenues. We are designing a program towards that end, naturally while keeping a careful eye on revenue development. We must focus on our core business and ensure delivery of the company’s important games.”

Starbreeze Chairman Michael Hjorth explained that the title does have a base concurrent player count that that framework is the future of their "Games as a Service" concept. With the team working on season 2 along with improvements.

Overkill’s The Walking Dead is now available for PC and will launch on Xbox One and PS4 this February 2019.
