A statement from Telltale’s CEO Pete Hawley to Ars Technica.
It’s been an incredibly difficult year for Telltale as we worked to set the company on a new course. Unfortunately, we ran out of time trying to get there. We released some of our best content this year and received a tremendous amount of positive feedback, but ultimately, that did not translate to sales. With a heavy heart, we watch our friends leave today to spread our brand of storytelling across the games industry.
This makes me sad as I really enjoyed the Sam and Max series. I never played any of their more modern games, although I had heard they were excellent. Maybe that’s part of the problem.
