Minecraft developer Mojang recently announced that they will cease supporting Minecraft: story mode and that players will have until June 25th, 2019 to download their episodes. This week GOG delisted all telltale games in light of the publisher’s closure last year, and now Microsoft Is following suit with their own Minecraft: story mode.
Mojang says that because of Telltale’s closure, seasons 1 and 2 will no longer be available after June 25,- even if you own them, you won’t be able to download them after that date. Players owning the game will, therefore, need to make sure to download it before its taken down for good.
The game is the latest of Telltale’s creations to be pulled from stores: at the end of May.
Telltale announced the narrative-driven game back in 2014 but launched it in 2015, bringing a traditional story-telling to the sandbox game through a series of episodic games that became popular with Telltale. The game was made available for Microsoft Windows, Mac OS, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Wii U, Nintendo Switch, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Android, and Ios.
The game followed Jesse, who along with his friends, have to find the Order of the stone, to prevent the destruction of their video game universe. During its creation, Telltale’s director of creative communications Job Stauffer noted that the game had drawn some inspiration from classic films of the 1980s like Ghostbusters.
The game ran for two seasons with season 1 having 8 episodes and season 2 running for five; between 2015 and 2017 last year. Last year, Telltale games signed a deal with Netflix allowing the media company to bring its game to the streaming service. A five-episode season of Minecraft: story Mode was debuted in November.
The closure of Telltale gaming company in November has also seen a bunch of other games It owned delisted from stream. Therefore, in light of GoG’s delisting, there are now very few places one can buy games from the studio. Waling dead remains up for purchase on the Epic Games store because they are now published by Skybound Games.
