Telltale Games begins majority studio closure, lays off 200+ staff

As well as leaving some 225 staff out of a job, reportedly without severance pay, the partial closure leaves fans bereft: Telltale has cancelled the majority of its projects, including the second series of The Wolf Among Us and Game of Thrones, leaving story threads unfinished.

Last week's layoffs and inevitable closure of Telltale Games was heartbreaking for a variety of different reasons, one of which being that the studio likely wouldn't be able to finish the now ongoing series The Walking Dead: The Final Season according to multiple reports including that of Melissa Hutchison, Clementine's own voice actress.

It is not known at this time whether or not the final season of The Walking Dead will be completed, though rumours at both GameInformer and USGamer point to episode 2 being the last released part of the game. One of those companies was Netflix, which had reached an agreement with Telltale to produce Minecraft: Story Mode and a Stranger Things interactive game.

In direct response to the closure, #TelltaleJobs has been created with the aim of finding work for everyone affected - and it hasn't taken long for some of the biggest names in gaming to respond.

'I, unfortunately, like most of you, do not have the details on how this all came to be and I also do not know the fate of the final season of TWD, ' she commented.
