Telltale Games Begins 'Majority Studio Closure'


Telltale Games, makers of The Walking Dead adventure games and several other episodic series, laid off many of its developers today and may be shutting down according to messages on social media, a report by The Verge, and a Kotaku source with knowledge of the matter.

[Update - 5:36pm]: Telltale sent Kotaku a statement confirming that all but 25 employees were let go from the studio as part of a “majority studio closure following a year marked by insurmountable challenges.” The small group that remains will “fulfill the company’s obligations to its board and partners.”


I loved their games, what happened?


I thought they were going to atleast stay open to support/patch old games. With this news I’m sure whatever physical media copies of the games they’ve made will probably go up and they maybe could have rebounded from that, but it seems like it’s going over the cliff and fast. I’m still hoping Sony will swoop in and acquire them, but obviuosly the odds are long on that.
