Report: Telltale Lays Off 'Skeleton Crew' Remaining at the Company

Status of remaining projects uncertain.

Telltale, which laid off most of its staff two weeks ago, announced during the layoffs that a skeleton crew of 25 employees will remain to complete work obligated to Telltale's various partners. It appears that they too might have been laid off today.

According to Telltale narrative designer Rachel Noel, they and the rest of the skeleton crew were just laid off from Telltale according to a new Tweet. They previously tweeted that they were on part of said team back in September.

We previously reported that the remaining members of Telltale were there to complete work on Minecraft: Story Mode for Netflix, an interactive series based on the Telltale game and part of Netflix's plan to make interactive shows geared towards younger audiences. We reached out to Netflix for comment on the project.
