:roll: what a company. The management should be ashamed of themselves.

To be honest, I never really liked their games anyway.

GOG is set to de-list its entire catalogue of Telltale Games in a couple of days... they're currently still on Steam but no idea if other retailers will follow suit at some point, so if there are any you were hoping to pick up, this is probably the time.

Tales of the Borderlands has already been pulled from Steam so expect the rest to follow soon.

Minecraft: Story Mode 1 & 2 are being delisted on the 25th of June on all formats. If you have any of them you should probably download the episodes now before they’re gone.

Telltale set to reopen... sort of:

https://www.pcgamer.com/uk/telltale-gam ... anagement/
Telltale Games is (at least on paper) returning to business, as reported earlier today by Polygon. Holding company LCG Entertainment (run by industry veterans Jamie Ottilie and Brian Waddle) have bought up the studio name and some of their licensed properties after Telltale's messy closure last September left hundreds of staff displaced. Effectively a new studio with new management operating under an old name, the new Telltale will be based in Malibu, California, with plans to "stay small over the next six months".

The immediately good news is that according to an interview with Polygon, the new Telltale has rights to a handful of their better games, including The Wolf Among Us and Batman. In-house properties like Puzzle Agent are looking good, too. With a little luck, this means they'll be returning some of their games to sale before long, as they were de-listed from digital stores earlier this year. There's the possibility of more to come, as Ottilie says "There are some other expired licenses that we’re looking at".
