Earlier today Telltale Games Announced they were shutting down their studio and leaving only a skeleton team to meet their current obligations. We reported earlier this year about two Netflix projects: “Minecraft: Story Mode”, an interactive Netflix series, and a “Stranger Things” game for consoles/PC.
Variety reached out to Netflix for comment on these projects and were told the following:
We are saddened by the closing of Telltale games– they developed many great games in the past and left an indelible mark in the industry. ‘Minecraft: Story Mode’ is still moving forward as planned. We are in the process of evaluating other options for bringing the ‘Stranger Things’ universe to life in an interactive medium.
