Telltale Games Removed From Steam

Telltale Games is in the process of shutting down as titles like Back to the Future and The Walking Dead are being removed from Steam.

Back in September, developer/publisher studio Telltale Games officially declared that they are officially going out of business after firing off majority of their stuff and retaining a small team of only 25 employees to finish the pending projects.

As of now, several of their renowned titles like episodic adventure series Back to the Future: The Game, Jurassic Park: The Game, Monkey Island and Telltale's The Walking Dead are removed from Valve's digital storefront Steam and not available for sale anymore.

Even though delisted from Steam, those who already own the game can download from library and play them if they want. Besides, they are still present on other platforms like GOG, PlayStation Store and Xbox Marketplace.

Another distribution platform Humble Bundle is still selling The Walking Dead: Season One, The Walking Dead: Season Two, The Walking Dead: A New Frontier and The Walking Dead: Michonne spin-off from the survival horror graphic adventure franchise.

Although the entirety of series is taken out from Steam, The Walking Dead: The Final Season is not off the racks yet. In October, the studio made a deal with series creator Robert Kirkman (Haunt, Invincible) and his company Skybound Entertainment to complete Clementine's story on a deserving note.

Other popular franchise like Batman: The Telltale Series, Game of Thrones, Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series and Tales from the Borderlands are still up there. It is visibly quite apparent that the entire Telltale catalog will be removed soon.

Telltale Games is currently looking for parties to gain enough money for their assets through assignment proceedings in association with Sherwood Partners, so that they could pay any creditors before completely shutting down.

The studio is currently in a situation similar to bankruptcy and they were by sued by a former employee. A class-action lawsuit was filed against the company in the federal court of San Francisco for violating labor laws of California.
