We see our fair share of controversies in the gaming industry (to put it mildly). People say the wrong things, developers make stupid decisions, video game launches go badly, yada yada yada- every year, sadly, there’s dozens of new stories along those lines. In this feature, we’ll be taking a look at fifteen such controversies of the last few years, and how exactly they went down.

TELLTALE GAMES CLOSURE

Telltale Games had been flying high ever since they released the first season of The Walking Dead in 2012, acquiring major licenses left, right, and centre, from Batman and Borderlands to Game of Thrones and Guardians of the Galaxy and so many others. But that reckless purchasing of licenses was, as it turns out, a huge reason for their heartbreaking downfall. Telltale Games abruptly shut down in 2018, with hundreds of people losing their jobs in the ugliest way possible. For the audiences, too, it was a tough pill to swallow- not only did upcoming games like Stranger Things and The Wolf Among Us Season 2 get cancelled, but the closure happened with The Walking Dead’s final season was ongoing- though at least that, thanks to Skybound Games, managed to get completed.
