I lost interest in them shortly after Walking Dead season 2, so I stopped keeping up on them, I thought they were doing well though. Then again they were spread out quite a bit with all the IPs they had, probably should have of just focused on a couple.
I played the first season of their GoT game about 3 years ago, but similarly didn't keep up with them afterwards. I know the Walking Dead series was very successful though, and never would have expected them to suddenly shut down like this.
I agree that the amount of IP rights they paid for must have played a part in this (along with general mismanagement of their projects it seems). Yeah, they probably should have developed far fewer series and focused more on some of their own IP (i.e. Tales from the Borderlands), instead they decided to keep running a number of expensive projects without really taking major steps (tech or notoriety-wise) with any of them.
Meanwhile, Ubisoft on twitter cut to the chase lol (don't know how much of this is just for PR, but I hope some of those guys can take advantage of the opportunity).
@DarkSpawn might be interested in this thread given his avatar.
According to this article, it may very well be.
I never experienced any bugs in any of their games thankfully.
I played both Walking Dead seasons and the 400 days episode, and I got to the middle of the GoT one and then I never got around to completing it due to them taking so fucking long with the last episodes and by that time I had switched out my 360 for a PS4 and didn't feel like doing the shit all over again. Never felt like getting into other Walking Dead games since as I said, I just sort of lost interest for various reasons.
The only other game they came out with that I had some interest in was the Borderlands one, but I was sort of burned out on that setting having played the hell out of the 2nd game and all the major expansions for it.
For fuck's sake, CoG's got the same thread about this topic and it's already fucking locked.

I’ll reopen this in a couple of hours. Take the time to calm down and reflect on what is appropriate and on-topic.
Someone accidently called someone by the wrong pronoun again. CoG might as well baby proof their whole goddamn forum.
It's the first time I've visited CoG (I know of its existence only thanks to this forum) and it really is surreal, feels like being in a very extensive parody.
If you feel morbid enough, here's the atrocious crime (obviously under "hidden content").
And they never reopened the thread lol.
Shows that companies have absolutely no loyalty to their employees. They will work you to death and then shitcan you. Game devs can't unionize fast enough
This is unexpected. The first walking dead game was very good, and the ones after that were ok. The only other game of theirs that sucked me in was GoT. But then again, after a while they really started to bore me with the whole feeling of irrelevance their stories acquired when you would arrive at the same damn endings regardless of your choices. I stopped following them after borderlands precisely because of the "illusion of choice" that plagued their games. GoT and season 2 of TWD where the only ones who didn't suffer from this in my opinion, and actually made me feel like my choices mattered. Anyway, I always hoped they would continue GoT but that clearly isn't happening anytime soon.
RIP The Wolf Among Us 2.
The first TWAU was the best Telltale Game, change my mind.
That was a weak and boring game, and you should feel bad.
Steve, stop pretending I care about what you think.
Disappointing that TWD The Final Season is reportedly being canceled halfway through.
Only enjoyed the Wolf Among Us game. Sad the sequel got canned.
Looks like season 4 will be like the next Half-Life 3 lol.
Really not so much of a surprise when they began losing out to games of similar formula with plots featuring magical time travelling lesbians.
Are you referring to Life Is Strange? Because that's not Telltale, and to be fair, wasn't a major downgrade except for the end and certainly didn't have a similar formula.
To loose out to: "to be defeated or bested by someone or something."
I'm pretty sure she knew that Life Is Strange wasn't Telltale.
Right you are, undr.
But let us just imagine that if telltale actually did make LIS, then it would be a strong possibility of no season 2 and also no potential of more time shenanigan adventures with close friends/possible lesbians/depending on your choices, etc.
It's almost a sad thought.
If Telltale had made LIS, one of the two main close friends/possible lesbians would already be dead.
Edit: Oh right she *SPOILER* is (in the sensible ending).
Well great, I actually managed to write loose instead of lose while bitching about its meaning.
I heard it was because of poor management choices and workplace toxicity.
Looks like they might be trying to complete the final season of Walking Dead.
broke: paying your employees a severance package
woke: shitcanning them without warning
bespoke: shitcanning them without warning, then conscripting them to work on a third season of a game that only tards like
All the blindys are coming out of their caves all of a sudden. Mayana must have bat squeaked some general alarm.
