Telltale Games Lays Off Part Of Its Remaining "Skeleton Crew"

06 October 2018, 04:49 | Myron Mathis

Today, a narrative designer who was one of those remaining employees stated on social media that she and other members of that "skeleton crew" have now been laid off as well.

Most people imagined that crew would stay on board for a few months, but as of October 4, 2018, Telltale Games laid off a few more of its employees.

Telltale Games has been wrapped in a massive controversy as of recent about not paying the staff it laid off a severance package but instead seeking out another team to complete The Walking Dead: The Final Season. Furthermore, a first review of a playable version of the episode was scheduled for the end of September.

Noel tweeted on September 25 that she was part of the small group that had remained at Telltale, adding both that "I am furious with how my now ex-coworkers were treated" and "I'm next". Noel went on to further clarify that there are still a few people around but her and her team are done.

"We're working 24/7 to get a ['Walking Dead' game] deal done", he said.

Writer/producer Robert Kirkman attends AMC's "The Walking Dead" panel during Comic-Con International 2014 at San Diego Convention Center on July 25, 2014 in San Diego, California.

Whether this stance has changed as more news unfolds though is up to anyone.
