A few days ago, Telltale Games revealed that it had put hundreds of employees, with only 25 employees left. Skeleton staff were allegedly committed to fulfilling contractual obligations, allegedly including work on a Minecraft: Story Mode project for Netflix.
With the hard realities that still kick in for people who were part of the former development team, one of the voters has taken Twitter to shed some light on the situation. Melissa Hutchinson, best known for giving her voice to Clementine in The Walking Dead series, said it was "one of the toughest days ever" and that she had been "deeply moved" by the messages in support. 19659004] Hutchinson continued to explain how she had no idea what was going on behind the scenes, just like the fans, saying that The Walking Dead series should come to an end:
I, unfortunately, like most of you, do not have the details of how all this was going to be, and I also do not know the fate of the last season of TWD. In my knowledge, they will release episode 2 and then it will be. It hurts me that you, fans, will not see Clem's journey through to the end.
The bad news did not stop there as she continued to confirm the sequel to The Wolf Among Us would not see the light of day:
It's bad to know that all the extremely talented actors who lent the voice until this last season, will not experience the final ending of one of the best women's games in the history of games and it hurts to know that long-awaited titles like another season of The Wolf Among Us will not be done.
To end, she signed the names of all the characters she had preiously played in Telltales games over the years, including Clementine, Toad and Beauty from The Wolf Among Us, Isa from Minecraft: Story Mode and many others.
Telltale Games was started in 2004 by a group of former LucasArts employees. The first game was Telltale Texas Hold'em and this was accompanied by releases like Tales of Monkey Island and Sam & Max . 2012 was by no means its breakout year when it released the original Walking Dead video game.
