In the event that you’ve been offering thought to buying a Telltale game on GOG, you might want to make your turn rapidly. All games from the defunct publisher that stay on its storefront will be delisted on May 27. That incorporates:
- 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
- Strong Bad’s Cool Game for Attractive People
GOG didn’t state why the games are being expelled, yet the safe assumption is that the breakdown of Telltale Games a year ago reverted the rights to owners who don’t have appropriation agreements with GOG. The games will stay accessible to anyone who has brought them before to 6 am ET on May 27, as the delisting just means they’ll no longer be available for sale.
Strangely, Tales From the Borderlands has just been expelled for sale from Steam, although other staying Telltale games are still accessible. Telltale’s Walking Dead games stay up for buy on the Epic Games Store, yet they’re presently distributed by Skybound Games, the company co-founded by Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman, which accepted control of the series (and arranged a post-Telltale deal with Epic) late last year.
- Jalopy, the Eastern European Road Trip Game, is Free on the Humble Store
- Graveyard Keeper, Party Hard, and The Final Station Go Cheap in the New Humble Bundle
- Xbox Manager Phil Spencer Pledges Improved Safety and Inclusivity in Online Games
The good news is that the entryway appears to be open for at least a portion of these games to return. A 2K rep told Eurogamer that it is “working to get Tales from the Borderlands back up on digital storefronts at the earliest opportunity,” and it just makes sense that the owners of the different series would need to get them back on the market also.
