Tell­tale Games CEO Kevin Bruner has stepped down from his posi­tion. For­mer chief exec­u­tive Dan Con­nors will now take over as CEO.

Bruner sent a com­pa­ny wide email to inform peo­ple of his deci­sion. The inter­nal email was orig­i­nal­ly obtained by Kotaku.

Today I am writ­ing to let you know that I’ll be step­ping away from my posi­tion as CEO of Tell­tale. 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 states that the tran­si­tion from Bruner to Con­nors will be seam­less. Bruner will remain on the board of direc­tors through­out the tran­si­tion.  A sim­i­lar sit­u­a­tion hap­pened with the CEO before Bruner so the com­pa­ny is famil­iar with the process which will like­ly help the tran­si­tion go smooth­ly. 

Guardians of the Galaxy, The Walk­ing Dead sea­son 3, and Game of Thrones sea­son 2 are cur­rent­ly being worked on by Tell­tale. These games will like­ly not be affect­ed by the change, but plans for future games may.
