Telltale Games is undergoing some major changes. CEO Kevin Bruner stepped down from his position as the head of the company this week. Bruner established Telltale Games all those years ago and even worked on Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead titles. Kotaku managed to acquire the email Bruner sent to staff announcing his decision and published it. Bruner wrote:
“Today I am writing to let you know that I’ll be stepping away from my position as CEO of Telltale. We’ve grown aggressively since Telltale’s inception, and now Telltale is bigger than I ever dreamed it would be. There are many possible futures for Telltale, and all of them are exciting and uniquely challenging. The time has come to pass the reins to someone that can better drive Telltale to the next level and realize all the potential that is here.”
Bruner became CEO of Telltale Games in 2015 so it hasn’t been long. He will stay on the board of directors during the transition as a new CEO steps in. However, Dan Connors, the company’s cofounder and former CEO, will take over so the disruption won’t be that severe. Here’s wishing Bruner and Connors the best of luck in the future. Telltale’s style of storytelling is stellar so hopefully the developer continues this tradition for a long time.
