Telltale Employees Left Stunned By Company Closure, No Severance

This is some serious BS. I totally understand that they had to close the studio, and that sucks. But not warning people and hiring people that had to relocate across country a week before closing your doors? Damn man, that's brutal. It's too bad Amazon didn't snatch everyone up to bolster its own game studios. 😕

According to Buck, at least one employee had joined Telltale only one week before the closure and had relocated across the country to do so. Another was a foreign national in the country on a work visa who must now leave “within a few days.” While none of those laid off are being given severance, contract workers who weren’t full time won’t even be able to collect unemployment.
