Telltale Games lays off more staff

  • The Walking Dead: The Final Season Could be Completed by Telltale's Ex-Staff

The news has come not in the form of a public statement from the studio, but rather in a tweet from Rachel Noel, a narrative designer at Telltale who was one of the company's few remaining employees. Telltale instead gave their hard-working employees 30 minutes to exit the building. Telltale Games has fired the remaining staff entirely.

Noel tweeted on September 25 that she was part of the small group that had remained at Telltale, adding both that "I am furious with how my now ex-coworkers were treated" and "I'm next".

Although it's not confirmed officially though, I'd say the Walking Dead is now effectively cancelled.

The demise or "majority studio closure" of Telltale Games has left the second half of the final season of The Walking Dead in limbo.

What is clear is that the former Telltale employees aren't likely to see any benefits from the game being finished.

In Japan, as a result of the approaching Typhoon Kong-Rey, was cancelled 214 flights in the Okinawa Prefecture. This storm comes on the heels of Typhoon Trami, which made landfall this past Sunday in Wakayama province.

It does seem now though that Telltale's days are well and truly numbered, but the rippling effect this has had on 250 people's lives can not be understated.

Video game stories from other sites on the web.

Whether this stance has changed as more news unfolds though is up to anyone.

In March of 2017, Kevin Bruner, CEO and co-founder of Telltale Games, left the company after a clash with the board of directors. In any given season, there are five to six episodes released. At least one former employee is suing the company in a class-action lawsuit for breaking labor laws.

Following the announcement of the closing of Telltale Games, Bruner wrote a blog on his personal website speaking about his personal experience with the company.
