‘Tales From The Borderlands’ And Other Telltale Games Are Being Pulled From Stores
GOG has announced that all Telltale Games' titles will be removed from its store on Monday, and some Telltale games have already disappeared from Steam. Though, 2K is trying to make sure that Tales From The Borderlands is back up for sale in digital stores "as soon as possible".
In a post to its forums yesterday, GOG said that "Sadly, we need to inform you that, due to company's closure, all the remaining Telltale titles will be delisted from our catalog on Monday, May 27, 10am UTC".
GOG published a list of the games that would be leaving its store: The Wolf Among Us, Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, Hector: Badge of Carnage, the Batman series, Sam & Max series, Puzzle Agent series, Tales from the Borderlands, and Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People.
However, it did say that "for everyone who purchased any of said titles prior to delisting, the games will remain in their GOG library".
It's not just GOG, Tales From The Borderlands has already been pulled from sale on Steam. It may be that we'll see the rest of Telltale's games disappear from Steam on Monday, too.
Speaking to Eurogamer, a 2K spokesperson said "We are working to get Tales from the Borderlands back up on digital storefronts as soon as possible. All prior digital purchases of the game will of course still be honoured and supported."
In September last year, Telltale Games began laying off employees rapidly, leaving a skeleton team of just 25 people to work on final series of The Walking Dead games. They too were laid off before the end of the year. Other publishers came in to take on some of the games, with Netflix taking on the Minecraft: Story Mode project and Skybound Games taking on The Walking Dead.
Will Monday mark the last we'll see of the Telltale Games that don't have a publisher like 2K pushing for their return to stores. Will the entire catalogue of a developer disappear overnight, so easily?
