Remember how Telltale Games laid off their staff and got vilified on the internet and gaming community for it? The company has decided to double-down. According to the remaining staff, everyone left at the company on the skeleton crew that was going to finish up the remaining projects have been sacked. The news came to us via Twitter yesterday evening from a few members of the remaining 25 staffers, with the most prominent one coming from the studio’s narrative designer, Rachel Noel.
Heeeeyyyy remember how there was going to be a skeleton crew staying on for a while and I was part of it? Nah, jk, we all just got laid off, too.

Aside from the company’s internal problems and social media woes, they’re also being hit with a class-action lawsuit from the first round of former employees. It’s a horrible one-two punch from a company that essentially went from being in business to laying off everyone within two weeks. Hopefully, the remaining staffers can land on their feet with other companies soon.
