Telltale Games to Shut Down

Telltale Games planned for studio shutdown with huge layoffs and cancelling The Walking Dead: The Final Season.

The company that mostly built their reputation around producing episodic graphic adventure titles on licensed properties like Batman, Game of Thrones, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Walking Dead series and The Wolf Among Us, Telltale Games has finally reached the end of the road.

After more than a decade of glorious run, the company has lain off majority of their 250 employees and intends to close down the studio. Apparently, the developer/publisher studio has been dealing with some troubles that they couldn't ultimately overcome.

After reports of this event starts surfacing on web, the studio has posted a message on their official Twitter account to clarify everything that is going on there right now.

Only a small team of 25 employees remained to fulfill their obligations to the board and partners, according to official statement. Rumor has it that, this sudden shut down is caused by the bankruptcy of the company.

CEO Pete Hawley also noted that even though Telltale Games have launched some of their best contents this year that has met with critical success. In most cases, that however didn't turn into actual sales and they eventually failed to thrive in the market.

Telltale has launched The Walking Dead: The Final Season earlier with immense positive response, which marked the end of an era that started back in 2012 with The Walking Dead: Season One and garnered a massive fan-following.

On July 2017, Season 2 for The Wolf Among Us were announced and then on May 2018, it was delayed to 2019. Reportedly, the studio was developing an upcoming Stranger Things series after forming a partnership with Netflix. Fates of both of these titles are uncertain now.

A year and a half ago, Telltale co-founder Kevin Bruner also left the company on a saddened note where both he and the board of directors had very different visions of future, leading him to eventually leave when it laid off 25% of their employees last November.

Telltale still continued working on their projects on hand and now, none of those games will release ever. It is truly tragic for a company suffering from mismanagement and a lack of new ideas that once used to pursue crazy projects with success.

The second episode of The Walking Dead: The Final Season is due for September 25 and as report suggests, it will not be finished. Whatever left of the studio stuff will now work on the Netflix adaptation of Minecraft: Story Mode.

Those who already paid the $19.99 price for the Season Pass of the game to receive the latter episodes upon release are due a refund and the Season Pass disc scheduled to come out on November 6 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will probably never see the light.
