Ousted Telltale CEO speaks out on studio closure

Telltale Games co-founder and former CEO Kevin Bruner has issued a statement following the news of the studio’s impending closure.

Written on his blog, he remarked that despite the personal differences that led to his exit he was proud of the work the company had done in defining the narrative genre and pursuing “projects no one else would consider".

He only vaguely touched upon claims of crunch conditions but went on to share words of praise for the Telltale staff, calling them the most talented people he had ever known.

“We were equally passionate about making sure our employees always had a home,” wrote Bruner.

“Prior to my leaving, we were able to avoid sweeping layoffs and (somehow) managed to ensure that we always had work for everyone.

“We worked hard, and sometimes it seemed like we had more than we could handle but we stuck together and forged ahead.”

He went on to say that he was "mostly saddened for the people who are losing their jobs".
