  • The Fireside Chat is mostly stuff we already know.

    "We would love to bring back everyone who wants to come but that just isn’t the economic reality of the games industry and it would be irresponsible of us to do so.”

    They've hired and contracted a mix of former Telltale employees, with most of them being contracted for the moment and that rehiring everyone who might want to come back as unrealistic which is understandable.

    The Wolf Among Us 2 is on their shortlist of projects to hopefully work on.

  • There's hope for a game in the future but that old stuff is abandoned ware at this point. I doubt they can just take those assets and start from where they left off.

  • I think that they would have to do some legal work and they'd have to get the people who worked on stranger things to go back to telltale.
