Minecraft Developer Mojang announced this support for Minecraft: story mode ends, and players will have until June 25, 2019 to download their episodes. The game’s delisting follows the demise of other games made by Telltale Games, which abruptly shut down last year.
Mojang says that due to Telltale’s closure, the game will no longer be supported from June and that players who have purchased it should make sure to download it before it is permanently removed. The game is the last of Telltale’s creations to hit stores: at the end of May, Kotaku reported that games such like Tales from the Borders was no longer available on Steam, and this Good Old Games storefront announced that it would no longer sell Telltale games.
Telltale Games announced the story-driven game in 2014 and released it in 2015, bringing traditional narrative to sandbox gaming through a series of episodic games that Telltale became known for. The game was available for Microsoft Windows, macOS, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Wii U, Nintendo Switch, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Android, and iOS.
The game followed Jesse (voiced by Patton Oswalt), who, along with his friends, must find the Order of the Stone, to prevent the destruction of their video game universe. At the time, Telltale’s director of creative communications Job Stauffer noted that the game drew a bit of inspiration from classic 1980s movies, like ghost hunters and The Goonies: There was something magical about this generation of movies before the PG-13 rating became commonplace, which gave us incredible inspiration.
The game ran for two seasons (Season 1 ran for eight episodes and Season 2 ran for five episodes) between 2015 and 2017, and last year Telltale Games signed a deal with Netflix to bring its games to the streaming service. , and a five-season episodes of Minecraft: story mode debuted in November.
