Telltale Games it the company behind the famous point-and-click games such as Game of Thrones, Guardians of the Galaxy and The Walking Dead. Even though these story-driven games have been a massive success in the gaming industry, Telltale Games announced on Friday that the company is shutting down and that all its projects are being canceled as well.
Telltale Game Shuts Down
“Today Telltale Games made the difficult decision to begin a majority studio closure following a year marked by insurmountable challenges. A majority of the company’s employees were dismissed earlier this morning, with a small group of 25 employees staying on to fulfill the company’s obligation to its board and partners” said the company in an official press release.
Every title released by Telltale Games has been successful and the company was scheduled to release a bunch of new games in the upcoming future. Among those games, Netflix had two games lined up. The games are “Minecraft: Story Mode” and a point-and-click version game of “Stranger Things”.
The news that Telltale Games is shutting down means that we are never going to see those game anytime soon. However, Netflix saw how many people were expecting the “Minecraft: Story Mode” and “Stranger Things” to release and it decided to announce that there is still hope.
Netflix Will Keep On Producing “Telltale” Games
Netflix announced that the two games it had planned to release in the upcoming future are not being scrapped. Not just that, but Netflix promised that it will keep producing “Minecraft: Story Mode” and “Stranger Things” in order to deliver a fun gaming experience to the fans.
The question that remains is when Netflix will release these games? Now that Telltale is gone, we don’t know who will be in charge of producing the two games and therefore, Netflix can’t give us a date for when they will be released.
