The developer behind narrative-driven episodic games based on The Walking Dead, Minecraft, Game of Thrones, Guardians of the Galaxy, and more, says the layoffs will affect 90 employees. The move is a part of a major restructuring that the studio says is meant to allow it to be "more competitive" (via RollingStone)
In a statement, Telltale says:
The focus will now shift to making fewer games with smaller teams, says Telltale Games CEO Pete Hawley:
Telltale says the move should not affect any games that have already been announced, which would include the second season of The Wolf Among Us, among others.
Telltale Games has become known for its myriad narrative-driven, episodic series based on popular properties like Batman, Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, and many more. With multiple series running at once, Telltale typically has a new episode release just around the corner at any given moment. With news that the studio is planning to slim down, we'll likely see the pace of releases slow down some.
The news comes as Telltale shipped the season finale of its Guardians of the Galaxy (opens in new tab) series, as well as the penultimate episode of its Minecraft Story Mode (opens in new tab) series.

It's, 'off' not of.
They already take forever to release the episodes so this kinda is meh
I don't see why the downvote, it's true, you pay your $5, you play your 20 minutes of chapter, and you're always left on a damn cliffhanger waiting a full month or more before the next episode. Personaly, just like with GoT or the Walking Dead I wait until the whole season is out before starting it, and with Tale Tell by then the first episode is always free
That's like... Your opinion man.
I can't see that he pretended it was anything other than his opinion. That shouldn't be a problem, that's what these forums are for.
Should I have put it in quotes for you?
Good timing Telltale, just before xmas. Bet the xmas party this year will be fun.
