In an email obtained by Kotaku, Telltale Games CEO Kevin Bruner announced he would be stepping down from his position as CEO of the company. Bruner is one of the founders of the studio and said that fellow co-founder Dan Connors would take over his duties.
“Today I am writing to let you know that I’ll be stepping away from my position as CEO of Telltale,” Bruner wrote in an e-mail to staff obtained by Kotaku. “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.”
Telltale head of communications Job Stauffer later provided a statement to Kotaku that said, “Kevin has led Telltale over the past couple of years after he stepped into the CEO role for co-founder Dan Connors in 2015. With Kevin departing, Telltale is fortunate to have Dan here to step back seamlessly into the CEO role.”
Telltale was founded over a decade ago and is known for creating episodic, narrative-driven adventures. Such games include The Walking Dead, Tales from the Borderlands, Game of Thrones, Batman, and the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy series. Bruner will stay on the board of directors during the transition period.
