Gaming Community Rallies Around The Laid-Off Telltale Employees

Telltale Games is closing its doors, and the shock to the gaming industry has been felt by a lot of people, as 250 people have reportedly lost their jobs.

Since news broke over the weekend, Twitter has been flooded with messages of sadness and anger, not just from fans of Telltale, but also from its staff and some of the biggest companies in gaming.

The hashtag #TelltaleJobs was started in the hopes of spreading awareness and finding new roles for the many people who lost their jobs.

Some of the biggest companies in the world of gaming right now – including Naughty Dog, Ubisoft, Epic Games, PUBG Corp, Blizzard, Twitch and DICE just to name a few – ‘opened their doors,’ tweeting condolences and job opportunities, all with the #TelltaleJobs hashtag.

As troubling as the news is, it’s truly remarkable to see just how many games companies are offering their services to those affected. Hopefully the talented people from Telltale will find a new home.
