Telltale’s woes continue. Via the official Minecraft blog, word has come out that Minecraft Story Mode Seasons 1 and 2 will no longer be available come June 25th, 2019. That means no matter what device you “own” Minecraft Story Mode on, you will no longer be able to download it or use any online features within the game.
From the publisher:
“On behalf of the publisher, Minecraft: Story Mode – A Telltale Games Series, Season 1 and 2 will no longer be supported on June 25th, 2019. If you have purchased these seasons, please download all remaining episodes prior to the service being discontinued in June.”
We’ve already seen a few Telltale Games titles get delisted on various digital storefronts, this latest news is an extra added bit of alarming information as the last remains of Telltale would appear to be disappearing from the Internet forever.
“But what about physical copies?” you ask. Check your physical discs and carts carefully – most, if not all, of the physical retail releases of Telltale Games titles only contain an episode or two of each game, requiring a digital download to obtain the rest; this includes even recent releases on Nintendo Switch as well.
Yet another reason physical games still have a leg up on their digital brethren.
