Telltale Games is laying off most of its staff, canceling upcoming games

22 Septembre, 2018, 20:58 | Auteur: Christine Menetries

News of mass layoffs that reduce Telltale's development staff to a reported 25 people came as a shock to fans of The Walking Dead series, an episodic, multi-platform title that has garnered nearly universal acclaim since the first installment landed in 2012.

While it hasn't been confirmed by Telltale, reports from US Gamer cite sources saying that everything on the studio's schedule except for Minecraft: Story mode will no longer be seeing the light of day.

Whatever happens next, Telltale Games have suffered a dramatic fall from grace, having always been the darlings of the graphic adventure genre since the first The Walking Dead series.

News of financial problems don't come as a complete surprise for the company, as earlier this year Telltale's former CEO, Kevin Bruner, sued the company he helped launch after he was ousted from its board of directors in 2017. Unfortunately, we ran out of time to get there.

We at GearNuke wish the best to everyone that was laid off from TellTale Games today and hope that they land a new job successfully and without any issues.

As things stand, Episode 2 of The Walking Dead: The Final Season, 'Suffer the Children, ' is due on September 25. With a heavy heart, we watch our friends leave today to spread our storytelling across the games industry.

Telltale Games has laid off a significant number of staff with only 25 out of 250 remaining.

While the story is still developing across multiple websites and social media platforms (with many employees and ex-employees speaking out), we can safely say Telltale has been hit by massive layoffs.

Regardless of whatever comes of this, it sounds like we could be hearing about a Stranger Things project in the near-ish future. The second episode is now scheduled to be released next week on September 25. It laid off almost a quarter of its staff in late 2017, and was sued by former CEO Kevin Bruner in June of this year.

How Telltale goes on from here, I'm not sure. "And I'm also saddened at the loss of a studio that green-lit insane ideas that no one else would consider".

Telltale Games is closing its doors, according to reports. "I'm comforted a bit knowing there are now so many new talented people and studios creating games in the evolving narrative genre". In later tweets, she noted that members of the studio "tried our best and/or couldn't do anything" and "wanted to make good games for you".
