To clarify some questions people have been asking (and keep in mind I am NOT a company rep)
- Around 250 people are jobless, not 225
- We did not get any kind of severance
- Our healthcare only lasts for one more week
- Many former employees were contract & can't get unemployment
- Due to the insanely high cost of living in the Bay Area relative to payscale, many of my (unbelievably skilled and talented!!!) colleagues were living paycheck to paycheck and do not know what they are going to do to make ends meet this month
- There are people who started at Telltale as recently as a week ago.
- Some of those people have children.
- At least one of them relocated cross country
- A lot of the Telltale devs have families & children. And now they don't have a paycheck. Not even a severance paycheck.
- If you have ANY positions available- full time, contract, part-time, on location, remote... PLEASE share them to #TelltaleJobs. Reach out to individual devs not just on Twitter on LinkedIn, Facebook, etc.
- These are some of the best storytellers and devs around! You want them!
I know you're wondering about what's going on with the previously announced games...
- Seems like Walking Dead: The Final Season Ep 2 is still dropping Tuesday
- Wolf S2 & Stranger Things are canceled
- Not sure what else I can say
- Don't ask former devs about it right now
- Your hot takes about the company making weird/not great decisions are not new, surprising, or revelatory to any of us.
- WE KNOW.
- WE KNEW.
- WE TRIED OUR BEST AND/OR COULDN'T DO ANYTHING
- WE JUST WANTED TO MAKE GOOD GAMES FOR YOU AND NOW WE ARE SOL
- I got confirmation that at least one (and possibly more) former Telltale employee was a foreign national here on a work visa and now has to leave the country within days. This is a nightmare.
