Telltale Games shuts down

Telltale Games, the studio behind such beloved games as "The Walking Dead" and "The Wolf Among Us" has reportedly shut down at very short notice. Rumors were rampant that Telltale had laid off all its staff with immediate effect and no severance terms. This rumor has now been corroborated by Telltale themselves in a statement released overnight:

Quote:
"Today Telltale Games made the difficult decision to begin a majority studio closure following a year marked by insurmountable challenges. A majority of the company's employees were dismissed earlier this morning, with a small group of 25 employees staying on to fulfill the company's obligations to its board and partners."

In the same statement, Telltale's CEO Pete Hawley said, "It's been an incredibly difficult year for Telltale as we worked to set the company on a new course. Unfortunately, we ran out of time trying to get there. We released some of our best content this year and received a tremendous amount of positive feedback, but ultimately, that did not translate to sales. With a heavy heart, we watch our friends leave today to spread our brand of storytelling across the games industry."

The company says it will "issue further comments regarding its product portfolio in the coming weeks
As for the projects that Telltale has in the works, it is believed that the final game in The Walking Dead series will now go unfinished despite the first episode (and the season pass) already being made available for purchase. It is currently unknown as to what will happen for those customers who have paid in advance. The upcoming games "Stranger Things" and "The Wolf Among Us Season 2" have also been canceled. Telltales final project looks to be "Minecraft Story Mode" for Netflix, which is what the remaining 25 staff have been kept on for.
