Telltale Games Lays Off 90 Workers

Around 90 employees have been made redundant from Telltale Games, the studio famous for The Walking Dead, The Wolf Among Us and other narrative episodic adventures.

Gamesindustry first reported that 90 workers have been let go effective immediately, approximately 25% of the company’s staff.

Pete Hawley, chief executive of Telltale, said Telltale’s “full career assistance services” have been made available to those affected. “The realities of the environment we face moving forward demand we evolve, as well, reorienting our organisation with a focus on delivering fewer, better games with a smaller team,” he remarked.

As is customary, a number of industry luminaries reached out over social media to offer their sympathies:

In a press release, Telltale added that they would “move internal development over to more proven technologies” as part of the company-wide restructure.
