The Wolf Among Us 2

After the surprise closure of the developer studio Telltale (The Wolf Among us 2, The Walking Dead) more and more sad details come to light. For example, a former employee is suing the company for violating labor laws in the state of California.

Accordingly, there was no reason for the dismissal of several hundred employees, firstly, and secondly, there were no advance warnings. The WARN (Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act) stipulates that companies with more than 100 employees must issue at least a 60-day warning in the event of closings or mass layoffs.

Hundreds of employees laid off overnight

Last week, Telltale, extremely surprisingly, laid off all of its employees except for 25 employees. These 25 employees are responsible for handling and closing the books, etc., as is usual with company closings. The hopes of the fans that this core group will at least bring the current season of The Walking Dead Final Season game to an end has meanwhile also been disappointed and the other episodes have been canceled.

It is still unclear whether the lawsuit against Telltale will be successful. The employees hope for compensation of at least 2 months' salary, which would correspond to the statutory warning period. Whether or not that much money will be found in the bankruptcy estate, however, is an entirely different story.

Telltale was known for the popular and therefore expensive licenses for many of their games such as The Walking Dead, Batman, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Wolf Among Us I + II, Game of Thrones and many more.

Aside from the disappointed fans about the canceled games, which includes the hugely popular The Wolf Among Us II, the entire incident is of course a tragic story when so many people become unemployed overnight.
