Do you think they Knew Telltale was going to shut down after s2? (Spoilers)
I just finished playing episode 5, and the closure was substantially radical.
Bruce had the option to stop being batman.
Think about it. There couldn't have been a season 3 after that radical ending, since it would make Alfred leave - Alfred, who always helps Batman maintain his humanity; without Alfred, Batman isn't Batman anymore.
So after making that choice, there wouldn't be much going back, unless we want Alfred to leave again.
So my theory is that the developers knew that Telltale was about to shut down, and decided to give us a great, well branched ending.
