Anyone else wish we had less radio silence from New Telltale?
Obviously I'm thrilled TTG is back, some employees who got laid off from old TTG are working again, and I'm thrilled that we're getting Wolf 2 and Shadows Edition was cool.
However, I really wish we heard more from new-Telltale about updates. Two days ago, they gained the rights to Monkey Island again and put it back on stores. However, they gave no Tweets about it or anything in the news tab.
We don't know where Wolf 2 is in development when we can expect to see it, or anything. While not an issue anymore, we never really heard anything about if the employees were working from home on Wolf 2 for a few months.
They never even tweeted ONCE about Batman Shadows Editions reveal. It's no wonder if you look in SteamCharts Player Count stats that not many people bought it. There was zero awareness. No marketing aside from a Youtube Trailer and News Post. Old Telltale was known for their abysmal marketing post-MCSM/Batman. They just started shadow dropping stuff like GOTG and MCSM s2 with zero marketing until Hawley stepped in and they did stuff for TWD season 4. I hope that LCG stops repeating old Telltales mistake here.
No Telltale employees or contractors have commented on the forums in six months In addition, nobody from new Telltale has done any interviews or had any public presence since Wolf 2's reveal.
I'm as thrilled as anyone Telltale is back, but I really wish they would stop being radio silent for months on end. They said that they were working on acquiring new IP back in August when LCG acquired the studio, but we had to wait 10 months for any IP to be acquired.
I am in no means discrediting the hundreds of pages of legal documents and negotiations regarding publishing rights, but I really wish we'd hear more about the other IP's such as Minecraft, Game of Thrones, Guardians, Back To The Future, Jurassic Park, and most of all Tales From The Borderlands (although who knows if LCG is involved with Borderlands)
This whole reboot feels unprofessional and half-assed, with the CafePress shop with 0 followers, to the fact that the forums are broken and log you out after you move two pages, and how we haven't had any announcements in six months.
But hey, at the end of the day, I am thankful for Jamie, Bryan, and the team for reviving the studio and Wolf 2, and I wish them the best in the future.
