Telltale Games, the Videogame Studio Behind the Walking Dead, Guardians of the Galaxy, Fables, and Batman, Has Massive Layoffs

Rumors have been swirling all day as to something going on at Telltale Games. Those rumors began with posts from employees and former employees on social media and ran from massive layoffs to the entire studio shutting down.

The company has put out the following statement:

Today Telltale Games made the difficult decision to begin a major 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 fo 25 employees staying on to fullfill the company’s obligations to its board and partners. CEO Pete Hawley issued the following statement:

“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.”

Telltale will issue further comments regarding its product portfolio in the coming weeks.

The video game studio was behind popular video games such as The Walking Dead, Batman, Fables, Guardians of the Galaxy, and more. The games have a focus on storytelling over button mashing and recently the publisher announced their popular The Walking Dead video game would be coming to Nintendo’s Switch with the first part released recently.

There are numerous games still to be released and completed and it’s unknown at this time as to what their fate will be.

The 200-250 employees laid off will not be receiving severance pay after the layoffs with a few turning to social media venting their anger over that and lack of compensation for overtime to ship games on time. Comments from employees also indicate they were given just 30 minutes to leave the studio after being told they were laid off.

We expect further news from the studio as to the future of its portfolio in the coming weeks.

The Walking Dead: The Complete First Season Comes to Nintendo Switch on August 28

Leading publisher and developer of digital entertainment Telltale Games, alongside Robert Kirkman’s Skybound Entertainment, have announced that The Walking Dead: The Complete First Season will launch on Nintendo Switch on August 28, bringing the multiple ‘Game of the Year’ award-winning first season to Nintendo’s latest console.

The Complete First Season includes all five original episodes, as well as add-on anthology 400 Days. Both have been ported from last year’s The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series Collection, which offered substantial visual and performance enhancements over previous editions. Those upgrades will now carry over into The Complete First Season on Switch.

The full game, including all five episodes and 400 Days, will be available for download starting August 28 for $24.99 USD in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Australia, and most of Europe. Though audio will only be available in English, all content has been subtitled in English, French, German, Spanish, and Italian.

Telltale also announced that The Walking Dead: Season Two and The Walking Dead: A New Frontier will both come to Switch later this year. More information will be available in the coming months. Additionally, episode one of The Walking Dead: The Final Season launched earlier this month on Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. New episodes of The Final Season will continue to launch on all four platforms throughout the remainder of 2018.

The Walking Dead is set in the world of Robert Kirkman’s award-winning comic book series and offers an emotionally-charged experience in which players’ choices determine the course of the story across the entire series. Season One of Telltale’s The Walking Dead introduced young survivor Clementine and her protector Lee as they struggled against the dire circumstances of an undead apocalypse.

Scopely and Telltale Games Announce The Walking Dead: Road to Survival and The Walking Dead: The Final Season Crossover Event

Scopely and Telltale Games have joined forces to bring players a brand new The Walking Dead storyline that links the worlds of Scopely’s The Walking Dead: Road to Survival and Telltale Games’ The Walking Dead: The Final Season. Players who download The Walking Dead: Road to Survival will embark on a new interactive narrative adventure that spans the stories of three powerful survivors that fans will recognize from Telltale Games’ critically acclaimed game series.

In the limited time crossover event, which runs through mid-August, players will be able to play through never-before-seen storylines (called “Roadmaps” in The Walking Dead: Road to Survival) inspired by the events of The Walking Dead: The Final Season.

Players will also be able to win Telltale-themed rewards by fighting in select in-game tournaments, running from July 17th through mid-August.

Scopely’s The Walking Dead: Road to Survival is a mature, intense, story-driven game that emulates the ongoing struggle to survive in a harsh and unforgiving world overrun by vicious Walkers and ruthless fellow survivors. Players navigate the challenges of collecting resources, building and fortifying their compounds, all while managing to fend off the onslaught of undead. The Walking Dead: Road to Survival is available as a free download on iPhone and iPad, Android devices, and Amazon devices.

In Telltale’s The Walking Dead: The Final Season, Clementine, now a fierce and capable survivor, has reached the final chapter in her journey. After years on the road facing threats both living and dead, a secluded school might finally be her chance for a home. But protecting it will mean sacrifice. Clem must build a life and become a leader while still watching over AJ, an orphaned boy and the closest thing to family she has left. In this gripping, emotional final season, you will define your relationships, fight the undead, and determine how Clementine’s story ends. The Walking Dead: The Final Season will launch on August 14 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

Batman: The Enemy Wihin Gets Two Endings and Two Trailers, Villain and Vigilante

Two possible Jokers. Two epic trailers. One final episode. See what’s in store in the two separate storylines contained within episode five of Batman: The Enemy Within.

Building on last week’s full season trailer, today Telltale Games has released two new trailers dedicated specifically to the fifth and final episode of Batman: The Enemy Within, the episodic game series that continues Telltale’s unique take on the World’s Greatest Detective.

Episode five, ‘Same Stitch,’ contains two separate storylines and two possible versions of The Joker, so each of these trailers focuses on a different potential experience. The choices players have made over the course of the season will determine which story — and which version of The Joker — they ultimately see in the finale.

‘Same Stitch’ launches Tuesday, March 27 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, Mac, and mobile.

Check out the two trailers below!
