It's sad, but not surprising. The reality is they where taking on too much and the quality was dropping on all their games. On top of that, all of their games ran terrible. They where so eager to pump out content that they didnt fix their core issues. This made people move away from them. What they originally did with The Walking Dead was moving and powerful. Then they rushed to released sub par content. Had they just kept to a few titles while constantly increasing the quality of their products they would still be successful.

They ran all of their games on the same engine..an overhaul was needed.

This is truly sad news.

Hope they profited for the good games they did put out. Also hope there's a good market for talented game developers and artists out there

XbladeTeddy26d ago

Considering the video game industry is bigger than the movie and music business I don't think that's a problem.

sander970226d ago

It's sad but I expected it after the whole mess with the leadership, bad sales and none of the other games matching the quality of TWD S1/TWAU it was bound to happen. I can remember something from every episode of TWD S1/TWAU but I can barely remember anything other than the ending for the other games.

Awful stuff. If only they made something original and tried to survive within something built up from scratch while trying to evolve the genre. 10 years of the exact same stuff...I mean if you don't evolve and stand still then unfortunately these things will happen.

ArchangelMike26d ago

Yup, they got comfortable with a one-trick-pony, and that bubble burst. They should have diversified their portfolio sooner.

StormSnooper26d ago (Edited 26d ago )

Perhaps but they were offering something that others were not. I think they kept thinking that the next concept will sell more than it actually managed. So they kept at it. There was nothing bad about their games imo

@storm

Besides their God awful engine that couldn't even hold a steady 30fps for a barely interactive movie.

Seraphim26d ago

honestly, I'm somewhat surprised they've lasted this long. While I have Batman I've yet to play it. And even that I bought because it was like $10 @amazon Black Friday '16 but all episodes weren't even available at the time of purchase so I shelved it. Thing is w/o even having played their titles it seems like they definitely did a great job with the IPs they worked on. But you're right, after so long of developing games that all have the same artistic design and play.... while we certainly don't know the financials and whether they could have even come up with something new, were just focused on the status quo or what not it's definitely sad to see them shut down. Hopefully the talented developers find a good home and can work on some great projects. Be a shame to see their talent wasted at the wrong studio.

I got batman with psplus it's really good, quite short but definitely worth playing.

Sirk7x26d ago (Edited 26d ago )

I feel like they might have had contracts for multiple Walking Dead games as well, but interest in that property in general has completely tanked. The show was incredibly popular when they started making them. It's a shame, the first Walking Dead game and Wolf Among Us were some very great gaming experiences for me.

AspiringProGenji26d ago (Edited 26d ago )

After The wolf among us the point-and-click story game novelty seemed to worn off. I heard Borderlands and Batman were good tho. Sad indeed. They got really good writers

ImGumbyDammit26d ago

The Wolf Among Us was a fun game. Too bad the sequel that TT promised will probably never see the light of day now.

Zabatsu226d ago

THQ Nordic will probably pick it up when you look at their track-record.

ImGumbyDammit26d ago

@Zabatsu2 I hope somebody does. It was definitely one of those games I personally just played start to finish and lost track of time doing so.

ArchangelMike26d ago

Batman was awesome. Shame, I would have wished for a sequel to Enemy Within.

The_Sage26d ago (Edited 26d ago )

Batman was awesome. Best Batman story every. As good as the tv show Gotham, quality of story wise.

ZaWarudo26d ago

Tales from the Borderlands was their best game imo. It sadly did not sell well.

TedCruzsTaint26d ago

The humorous writing in that one was fantastic.

Jinger26d ago

Batman was one of their worse ones tbh terrible performance and bad recreation of the characters. Almost as bad as Gotham.

TedCruzsTaint26d ago

Twau and Borderlands were my favorites from them. Waa excited hearing they had more Wolf on the way, and now I'm sad knowing I won't get a continuation of either.
