Episode 2 will launch tomorrow as planned.
Yesterday, Netflix revealed their plans following the Telltale layoffs, and that the Stranger Things game would be made by another studio. Today, Devolver Digital reached out to Netflix on Twitter and expressed interest in finishing the Stranger Things game with NoCode, the developer of Stories Untold and The House Abandon. Netflix hasn’t responded at the time of this writing.
Yesterday, former Telltale employees filed a class-action lawsuit alleging that Telltale violated the WARN Act. The WARN act became a law in 1988 and makes businesses notify employees 60 days before a major layoff. Telltale terminated employees with no severance and the situation isn’t looking too good for the company.
