The unfortunate situation of Telltale Games has been watched closely by the gaming world these past few weeks, after the studio laid off 250 staff members, leaving just a skeleton crew of 25 staff to try and complete the company’s current commitments to The Walking Dead franchise.
Reports are now coming in via Gamasutra and Twitter that the remaining 25 team members have now also been laid off. The news comes via Narrative designer Rachel Noel, who has taken to Twitter that she has now also been released along with the other remaining team 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.
