the sites still list tell tale as publishers when we know its obvs now funpimps

No. The site is correct and you are not. This is actually an issue that TFP will hopefully be able to resolve. The reason that TellTale is listed as the publishers is because they are the publisher of that version in the stores. No subsequent version was ever published and TFP are not console publishers. Getting the rights to their game does not make them publishers. It does allow them to license their IP out to a new publisher in the future if they want to bring the full PC version to the next gen consoles.

 

In the future, they will not be publishing the next console game. They will partner with a console publisher as they did with Telltale in order to make it all happen. TFP is a PC game studio period. They have not been, are not now, and will not be the publishers of the console version of 7 Days to Die. Since it was always Telltale that dealt with Microsoft and Sony stores, TFP will have to make contact and work through making the changes.

Developers set their price point for their games not platforms

This can't be entirely true at least based on the Steam store. Perhaps the base price point is set by publishers but online stores can run sales and discount the game and inform the developer or publisher that they are doing so. At any rate that was all handled by Telltale. TFP has never dictated the price nor had direct dealings with the Microsoft store or Sony Store. They are indeed looking into that now. I've worked in retail myself and can tell you that stores often run discounts and price reductions at their own discretion.
