Le studio Telltale Games fait faillite et fermera bientôt ses portes

  • Telltale Games : le studio licencie en masse et s'apprête à fermer

Des articles dont le contenu a été partiellement confirmé, au travers d'un bref communiqué publié sur Tweeter par le studio lui-même. Cette situation devrait conduire - à terme - à une cessation complète d'activité. A l'heure actuelle, 90% de l'effectif a été remercié, laissant une poignée d'employés (25) en charge d'un ultime projet. D'après les sources de US Gamer, ce petit groupe doit travailler sur le développement de la série interactive Minecraft Story Mode pour Netflix. Les autres titres que Telltale développait (ou que le studio s'apprêtait à mettre en chantier) sont purement et simplement annulés.

Mieux vaut attendre la confirmation officielle de cette triste nouvelle, mais il se pourrait que pour Telltale Games, l'aventure se termine bientôt.

A l'heure d'écrire ces lignes, Telltale Games n'a pas encore réagi à tout cela.

Shahid Kapoor-starrer to witness growth
In its fourth week, the film has managed to enter the Rs 100-crore club and has earned a total collection of Rs 116.23. Friday Rs 6.76 crore, Saturday Rs 7.96 crore.

En revanche, une source du site USGamer affirme que l'adaptation de Stranger Things et la saison 2 de The Wolf Among Us sont bien annulées, ce qui signifie que The Walking Dead est le seul projet encore en cours. "Le cœur lourd, nous voyons aujourd'hui nos amis s'en aller répandre notre savoir-faire en matière de narration dans le reste de l'industrie".

Ces licenciements ont lieu alors que Telltale rencontrait depuis plusieurs années des difficultés financières notables, dues notamment aux échecs commerciaux de plusieurs de ses jeux à licences. Telltale Games est connu pour ses nombreux jeux du type " où les choix du joueur déterminent la tournure du scénario", basés et inspirés de célèbres fictions comme The Walking Dead, Batman ou encore Game Of Thrones. Une nouvelle approche, judicieuse sur le papier, mais qui n'aura malheureusement pas suffi à sauver les meubles.
