Telltale Games has announced the decision to let go of 25% of its workforce.
The company behind episodic adventure series’ like The Walking Dead, Tales From the Borderlands and Game of Thrones confirmed that a quarter of the studio had sadly been made unemployed due to “comprehensive company restructuring.”
In a statement, Telltale said that the decision would make the studio, “more competitive as a developer and publisher of groundbreaking story-driven gaming experiences.”
“Our industry has shifted in tremendous ways over the past few years,” said Telltale Games CEO Pete Hawley. “The realities of the environment we face moving forward demand we evolve, as well, reorienting our organisation with a focus on delivering fewer, better games with a smaller team.”
Though it will be of little consolation to those affected by the decision, Telltale confirmed that development for its current or already announced titles would be unaffected by the lay off’s.
Telltale Games released the final episode of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy debut season yesterday.
