The Walking Dead Season 3 PS4 PLayStation 4 1

Telltale gaffer Kevin Bruner has reportedly stepped down from his position of CEO this week, according to sources close to Kotaku scribe Jason Schreier. This is big news because Bruner actually helped found the company which has gone on to become a major household name, following its success primarily on The Walking Dead and later franchises like Batman and Borderlands.

"We've grown aggressively since Telltale's inception, and now Telltale is bigger than I ever dreamed it would be," Bruner purportedly wrote in an email to employees. "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 realise all the potential that is here."

Telltale's yet to comment on the departure, but it's believed that Bruner will act on the board of directors during the transition period, while co-founder Dan Connors will take on the company's "day-to-day operations" moving forwards. It's unlikely this will have any impact on any current or upcoming projects.
