Minecraft: Story Mode is about to disappear, so download while you can

Ever since Telltale shut its doors last year, its games have been slowly disappearing from digital storefronts. Just last week, a number of games were delisted from GOG, and soon, we’ll be saying goodbye to one of the biggest games the developer had a hand in creating – Minecraft: Story Mode. If you own (or want to own) Minecraft: Story Mode, you’re running out of time to get those downloads in.

Mojang has revealed that Minecraft: Story Mode will be delisted on June 25, 2019, leaving players only a few weeks to grab it before it disappears. It sounds like both seasons of Minecraft: Story Mode will be delisted from digital storefronts entirely on the 25th, which means that you won’t be able to download them after that date even if you already own them.

That’s disappointing news, because usually when games are delisted, users who already purchased them can still download them from whatever digital distribution channel they bought those games from. Mojang published the statement on behalf of Telltale Games to its blog, confirming that all of the platforms Minecraft: Story Mode is available on are affected by this.

The list of affected platforms is indeed a long one, as Minecraft: Story Mode is available on Windows, macOS, PS3, PS4, PlayStation Vita, Wii U, Nintendo Switch, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Android, and iOS. It’s safe to say that Minecraft: Story Mode had a pretty wide reach, because the only modern platforms that aren’t on that list are the original Wii and the Nintendo 3DS.

So, if you own Minecraft: Story Mode, you have just over three weeks to make sure all of the episodes from seasons 1 and 2 are on your PC or console before you lose your chance to download them for good. Hopefully these games will reappear at some point down the road, but for now, it’s probably not a good idea to count on that happening.
