It is a hard day for the studio behind adventurous game series like The living Dead, Game of Thrones, The Wolf among usand many other high-profile projects.

After a round of mass layoffs, the Telltale has dropped from hundreds of employees to about 25 ℃, according to The Verge. If that seems like a painful, radical restructuring, I totally agree.

Just looking at the well-known plans of the studio, Telltale has at the moment The Walking Dead: The Final Season, The Wolf Among Us: Season Two, Game of Thrones: Season Two, and a Stranger Things game.

How Telltale goes on here, I'm not sure. Our best goes to everyone who is affected.
