    Or they actually need developers, and having experienced developers available for hiring is something they want?

    Some of their writers would fit right in at Sony with their oft superb focus on narrative/story based games, which is why I am pleased to see the likes of Bend Studio, Sucker Punch and Naughty Dog helps those affected by this abrupt closure find themselves a new job.

    I am still in shock about Telltale Games closing down for good...

    I guess if there's one positive thing to come out of Telltale's closure, it's that some other developers are going to get a nice injection of talent.

    Warms my heart to see so much outreach. I have nightmares about suddenly losing my job like that. Hopefully everyone is okay.

  39. Don't kid yourself. These mass firings are a boon for many studios. They get to hire experienced/talented devs at a discount, just by sheer desperation, especially in such an abysmal bankruptcy as TTs.
    Unionization can't come soon enough.

    Getting a job is all that matters for these developers, they have families, being unemployed and having a family you need to provide to and not being able to do it is the most gut wrenching feeling ever, i hope all those affected land on their feet ASAP.

    banned... people are naive. ERA is a Gaming Industry website, you can't say too much sh*t about Gaming Industry or its actors.

    But I agree with this post.
    This. Good news of course but Companies are Companies and they really don't care about your life and any other people.

    I think it’s more just generally looking out for those who lost their jobs suddenly with potential opportunities, not an indication of a type of game Ubi wants to make.

    Ubisoft is a massive company that do tons of projects and hires tons of people. Don't read into this too much.
