Telltale Games closure comes as they battle on multiple fronts

According to CNET, employees were given nearly 30 minutes to exit the building. Nintendo Life reported that the layoffs come after the developer was accused of overworking employees and former CEO Kevin Bruner suing the company for financial damage. Telltale Games previously laid off 90 employees.

The popular video game developer was known for pioneering episodic games. In their games, decisions you make in one episode would carry on to the next, most notably in "Walking Dead," "Batman," "Minecraft," and "The Wolf Among Us." The company was even successful in attracting big name brands including "Game of Thrones," "Back to the Future," and "Guardians of the Galaxy." They were currently working on a "Stranger Things [VIDEO]," game for Netflix before the sudden layoff.

Ex-Telltale boss Kevin Bruner filed suit

Telltale Games has not given a specific reason for closing their doors. Bruner became CEO in 2015 but later left the company in 2017. Telltale co-founder Dan Connors returned as CEO when Bruner left. Connors ended up naming Pete Hawley as CEO. Hawley was a former Zynga executive.

Bruner's lawsuit alleges that Telltale Games and its board illegally ousted him when they did not have the proper amount of votes necessary to do so. Bruner's suit also claims that the company did not give him enough information when he was planning to sell his shares.

Bruner also issued a statement saying he was saddened by the sudden loss of jobs and closure of the revolutionary gaming studio. Under Bruner's leadership, they received Game of the Year and Studio of the Year at the Spike Video Game Awards.
