Telltale Games Lays Off 90 People

The company decided to optimize its production and sent the pink slip to around 25% of its total workforce. Telltale Games is most known for its work on episodic games like Walking Dead, Guardians of the Galaxy and Minecraft: Story Mode.

The official company statement says that these unpleasant moves are part of a “comprehensive company restructuring”. This should help the company become more competitive as a developer and publisher.

Our industry has shifted in tremendous ways over the past few years. The realities of the environment we face moving forward demand we evolve, as well, reorienting our organization with a focus on delivering fewer, better games with a smaller team.

I’d like to express our respect for all the contributions that these incredibly talented artists, storytellers and more have made to this company and that this decision is in no way a reflection on the quality or dedication of their work. We have made available our full career assistance services to help our affected colleagues and friends – and their families – navigate this difficult transition as quickly as possible.

Pete Hawley, CEO, Telltale Games

After the restructuring has been complete, Telltale is going to move all the internal development over to more proven technologies, which will help with innovation and bring games to new audiences. The current changes will not influence the current release schedule.
