Telltale Games is being sued by co-founder Kevin Bruner

Suit filed in February over breach of contract

More bad news has been unearthed concerning strained developer Telltale Games, well known for their episodic adventure titles such as The Walking Dead and The Wolf Among Us.

Kevin Bruner, former CEO and co-founder of the Californian company, filed suit against his former place of employment after being given the shove from the Board of Directors (which Bruner claims was done without proper procedure), around the time former Zynga executive Peter Hawley was hired as Chief Executive.

The main crux of the lawsuit, filed in February of this year, appears to be that communication between Telltale Games and Bruner has ceased. Thus Bruner has not been given insight to the company's financial and management standings, disabling him from being able to accurately gauge the value of his remaining shares in the developer.

Telltale's lawyers have responded, stating that Bruner's suit is "an apparent means of extracting revenge on a company already under financial strain". Even going as far as to state that "The Company is now working to turn around the decline that it experienced under Plaintiff's stewardship." An official case management conference will take place on July 17, 2018.

The last year has seen a string of bad news for Telltale, who were involved in unwelcome controversies, had release dates slip and, last November, unfortunately had to let go of a quarter of their workforce. None of this has stopped the team from pushing forward, however, as just last week they announced a new episodic series based on Netflix smash-hit, Stranger Things.
