Telltale Games’ Minecraft Story Mode to be delisted as support for the game is set to be discontinued following the closure of the studio.
The Story Mode game of the hugely successful Minecraft is to be delisted according to an official statement from Minecraft’s website.
The closure extends to both Seasons of the game developed by the now closed Telltale Games.
The games were developed by Telltale Games, a studio renowned for creating excellent games based on existing franchises through the use of officially licensed assets.
Minecraft: Story Mode was released in 2015 through 2016 in the form of episodes, something Telltale Games did with all of their games.
Using the Minecraft engine, the game departed from the original game in that it provided a story for players to follow.
The game was released across multiple platforms including Windows, macOS, Android, iOS, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch.
Minecraft itself is the exact opposite in that players build their own worlds and create their own stories in a sandbox system.
The game was very well received by critics and gamers alike with the Minecraft look and feel being well integrated into the story cited as one of the best things about it.
Telltale Games founded by former Lucas Arts employees officially closed on 11 October 2018.
However the studio started to have internal development issues in 2017 which led to a 25% staff cut and eventually was closed.
The closure of Telltale Games was a shock to the games industry as they were extremely popular.
The studio had worked on critically acclaimed, narrative driven stories based on popular franchises.
Some of the games worked on were for existing intellectual property such as The Walking Dead, Jurassic Park and Batman.
There were also some major games in development at the time of the closure which have been confirmed as Stranger Things and Monkey Island.
Because of the closure of Telltale Games, Minecraft: Story Mode will no longer be available for download at all after June 25 2019.
This includes people who already own the game.
