Last week, Telltale released a majority of their staff with no severance pay. They kept a skeleton group of employees to finish the last projects they owed to the shareholders. Apparently, that didn’t last long as Telltale just released the last remaining staff members.
Heeeeyyyy remember how there was going to be a skeleton crew staying on for a while and I was part of it? Nah, jk, we all just got laid off, too.

The last project Telltale had was The Minecraft Story for Netflix. What remains of that project remains to be seen. Telltale has faced heavy scrutiny by the public for their mass layoffs without providing warning or severance packages for the employees. According to Kotaku, Telltale will finish The Walking Dead: The Final Season with another developer which is a slap to the face of the employees who worked so hard on the game. The future of The Walking Dead: The Final Season looks bleak but the Telltale hasn’t responded on the employee layoffs. Guess they chose the no answer option.
