Producers Kensuke Tateishi, Toshihiro Maeda, and Tetsuya Kinoshita discussing the reason behind studio change translated by Anime News Network from the NewType Magazine: (Read the full statement on their website linked here: https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/interest/2020-10-12/attack-on-titan-producers-discuss-reason-behind-studio-change-to-mappa/.165104 )

Maeda: "Of course, there were also those who told us that they had the desire to do it but just couldn't make it work in their schedule."

Tateishi: "The only studio that said they would consider it was MAPPA. When we talked to WIT about it, they said they could rest easy knowing it was in MAPPA's hands. The producers were in agreement, so the production shifted to MAPPA."

Kinoshita: "MAPPA took the matter firmly into their hands, saying, 'Attack on Titan should have a proper ending for the sake of the fans,' which also made a strong impression on us."

The final season of the series will begin broadcasting on NHK General on December 7.
