It may be budgetary because at one time AMC wanted less expensive location shooting and wanted lots of episodes filmed on standing sets which would've meant our character wuld be holed up in buildings for large segments of the show.
That's pretty been what has been happening this season with the cast being stuck in the Prison and Woodbury. We have had barely any outdoor location shooting.
AMC will only be happy if all the entire show took place inside a giant cardboard box.
