Remaining Telltale Games employees laid off

The Walking Dead The Final Season PS4 Play Station 4

Telltale Games, an American video game developer, released a statement on their Twitter account on Friday, Sept. 21, saying that they had let go a majority of their staff after a hard decision to begin a majority studio closure.

Just two days ago, Telltale has released an official statement regarding the future of The Walking Dead franchise.

Telltale Games Has No Staff!

"None of my sleepless nights or long hours on weekends trying to ship a game on time got me severance today", Cebenka tweeted.

In spite of all the workplace culture issues, TellTale's downfall was ultimately the product of "a failed round of financing" In spite of the numbers indicating video games to be a booming industry, a closer looks reveals a volatile world full of unsustainable workplace practices. The writing was on the wall for Telltale after several investors and key deals put the company in a dire financial situation after months (and years) of what ex-employees described as poor and unsafe mismanagement of company funds. According to some reports there are still plans to complete development of The Walking Dead The Final Season, with a third-party to employ the talents of the team who were sadly made redundant. In any given season, there are five to six episodes released. That makes sense given the game developer shut down and laid off 225 employees last week, cancelling several projects and leaving others unfinished such as The Walking Dead.

While to many fans, this closing of the franchise may come as a surprise, it was not a surprise to Telltale CEO, Pete Hawley.

Paste has reached out to Telltale Games for more information and will update this post with any further details. At least one former employee is suing the company in a class-action lawsuit for breaking labor laws.

Telltale Games can now be considered to be officially done with its projects.
