Their games have made me laugh, cry and complete frustrate me when they pause at crucial moments, but nothing has made the team at THUMBSTiX sadder than to hear of the Majority of Telltale Games team have been laid off.

Pete Hawley, Telltale CEO, said:
It’s been an incredibly difficult year for Telltale as we worked to set the company on a new course. Unfortunately, we ran out of time trying to get there. We released some of our best content this year and received a tremendous amount of positive feedback, but ultimately, that did not translate to sales. With a heavy heart, we watch our friends leave today to spread our brand of storytelling across the games industry
The final series of the Walking Dead only just release and it seems it won’t make it past the second episode, despite earlier reports suggesting a small portion of the team we continuing to finish the game.
