If you haven’t bought any Telltale games (Which you haven’t since their sales numbers were atrocious), now might be the time. With Telltale closing down, the company is selling off their assets which include physical goods, trademarks, copyrights, software, and source code. This means other studios will be able to purchase the rights and potentially continue the game stories. On Steam, Telltale has removed their older games such The Tales of Monkey Island, Back to the Future, and Jurassic Park. The Walking Dead: The Final Season and their more recent titles are still available but the date on which they’ll be removed is undetermined. Telltale is working with Skybound Entertainment to finish The Walking Dead: The Final Season. 

In addition to the liquidation of their assets, Telltale can only provide their former employees’ health benefits until November 30th. This will leave their 250 former employees and contractors without health benefits after their layoff. Telltale has been facing lawsuits from former employees for the sudden layoffs.
