I blame the episodic model. I waited with TWD until it was complete and on sale, since I was waiting anyway. Then I did the same thing with TWD2 and forgot about it by the time it was finished. Every time I saw a review of a new game of them it's episode 1, by the time it was done, my interest was gone as well :/

Sad news. This seems to be a case of really bad management. I enjoyed the episodic nature of their games, but they had too many games released at the same time, the development effort must have been huge,and they were kind of competing against themselves.



Ah true, so at best they can hope to be bought on the basis that it saves a publisher putting together a team/studio when they can just use them. But normally that kind of sell off is rare. Like with the case of Crytek selling many of it's studios to SEGA and THQ.



Only in america. Is there a union for the video game industry??



250 developers making Point & click games lol
What moron thought there'd be economy big enough to support such a huge studio making a niche genre.

Reading some things here is shocking, if true then Telltale has been completely mismanaged for years.

This kind of thing happens in every country. Financial mismanagement of a company isn't exclusive to the US, and it's also something that unions can't do a thing about either.



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702
