TellTale games, the company behind the episodic adventures of The Walking Dead, The Wolf Among Us and many more is getting hit with some heavy layoffs. Sources are saying that there are only 25 members left on staff and that they have also cancelled all future projects including Stranger Things and The Wolf Among Us 2.
The news began to hit when former members of the dev team headed to twitter to let it be known they are looking for new work.
Hey, is anyone looking for an empathetic, kind Narrative Designer/Game Designer/ Writer for full time or contact work?
Asking for me. I don’t have a job any more.

This is not the first layoff wave that has happened at TellTale, seeing that last November they got rid off 90 members of there staff. Even in June of this year former CEO of TellTale, Kevin Bruner, sued the company for recovery of financial losses. TellTale will likely wrap up The Walking Dead and be closing its doors. The 2nd Episode of The Walking Dead will be out for Xbox One, Ps4, and PC on September 25th.
