Telltale is preparing its funeral by finalizing its worldly affairs one step at a time.
The saga of Telltale's demise is a sad one underlined by mismanagement and the ruthlessness of the games industry.

Publication GameDaily confirmed that Telltale's liquidation is on the horizon, and will be handled by a company called Sherwood Partners.
The article goes into great depth about Telltale's closure proceedings. The devs aren't actually filing for bankruptcy and will instead undergo a process called "assignment," which essentially closes the studio down while selling assets to pay off any outstanding debts. We have no idea who has bid or even bought Telltale's assets--or what these assets actually are besides engine tech, given the studio licensed all of its games.
