Minecraft: Story Mode won’t be supported after June 25, players have until then to download the episodes
Since Telltale Games is no more, that puts Minecraft: Story Mode in an unfortunate position. It’s been announced that support for the game is ending after June 25. Moreover, players are advised to download all episodes by that date. Both Switch and Wii U will be impacted.
The messaging is slightly unclear, but it potentially sounds like even if you purchased either season of Minecraft: Story Mode previously, you may be unable to access episodes once the deadline passes. That means the episodes could be permanently removed for everyone later this month.
Here’s the full announcement:
Today, we have some important information to share for all players of Minecraft: Story Mode – A Telltale Games Series, Season 1 and 2, on behalf of its publisher. As you might have heard, its publisher is no longer in business, which unfortunately means that Minecraft: Story Mode will no longer be supported. If you have purchased these seasons, please download all remaining episodes prior to the service being discontinued in June. Here’s the full message:
“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.”
So if you own either season of Minecraft: Story Mode on Microsoft Windows, macOS, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Wii U, Nintendo Switch, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Android, or iOS, you have until June 25th, 2019 to download the episodes. We’d recommend checking you have all the episodes downloaded!
