During the recent Campo Santo Quarterly Review, Director Nick Herman revealed that the company considered Tales From the Borderlands to be a failure in their eyes. Herman stated..
“I had a hard time getting excited for the next thing. Tales was my life for two years, and internally it was perceived as a failure. Critically it was a huge success, but from a sales and production standpoint, it wasn’t awesome.”
Herman said that most of this is due to most of the development team being pulled from the project during the development of the fifth and final episode. Stating..
“About halfway through, we made a deal with the studio that if they let us go on, we would give up like 95% of our staff as long as they let us maintain a skeleton crew. We had at least one person from every department working on the game. But that’s a very small team for an episode.”
