Question: If they're delisted from the store, would they still be in my ready to install list if I already own them?
They will be. However on Windows 10 you usually can't purchase any DLC except through the game directly.

I say usually because shared DLC from a Play Anywhere title can be purchased from the store like it is on the Xbox One

Edit: Also the Telltale DLC is actually installed with the game, it's not standalone

Do NOT buy anything from them. Just don’t. Your want to play a game doesn’t justify how they treated their employees. Don’t give them a single cent. Find a physical used copy or something. Nobody who put in hard work will ever get anything from it.

All digital only Telltale games. Get them while you still can before they are delisted.

Every digital only TellTale game

I suspect this is because people bought a physical copy from let's say, Cex in the UK or Gamestop in America, installed it, blasted through the story, and returned it 2-3 days after they bought it for a full refund or some lame excuse trade back to the store in order to get a different game substituted for this.

At which point, they company didn't really make games that had a lot of re-playability value so I can kind of see why they went under. TellTale games are very niche and in my opinion, I used to like them. Then it turned into a we got the rights to this so we'll make 5 chapters of this story.

The only story they should have stuck with from day 1 was The Walking Dead. I felt they had a goldmine there from the get-go but didn't capitalise on it quickly or efficiently enough.
There is always a way.

Thank you for this link but I don't think many will capitalise on it to make enough of a different for TellTale.

I need to get Batman season 2 and Minecraft season 2. But I don't want to pay full price for this.

Telltale isn't even trying to make a difference for Telltale, they are just trying to pay their creditors. So it's not like you're helping them make profit, you're helping the businesses that helped them make these games

It's not going on sale. It's coming off the marketplace. Buy it now or miss it forever.

I suspect that these will not be reissued, although someone could potentially pay to transfer the licenses if GoT/TWD/whomever wants to let the games continue to be sold. That would remain to be seen. (I doubt it'll happen.)

I'm not paying more than 10 bucks for 7 days to die.
Same here. I tried it on that free play weekend they had a while ago and kept it installed waiting for a decent sale. The cheapest it has been since is $27.99 CAD.

To this day I kick myself for not having bought this bundle when it was on sale last year. $16.50 CAD for 7 days, Season 1 and 2 of TWD plus Michonne. I know we've received the first two seasons with Gold, but it was still good value.

when would the xbox games be delisted its only the ones on the windows 10 store that i need to buy
I suspect that delistings will be unannounced.
Who would announce it, I imagine their social media team has long gone

I bought almost every TellTale game in the past so thankfully I don't have much to catch up to.

If only Minecraft Season 2 wasn't $25.00 right now, otherwise I would grab it in a heartbeat.

THQ Nordic is probably gonna buy this.
Or microsoft since they love buying dieing companys.
They could buy them all and preserve them on gamepass

So it seems most of these can be purchased physically, which includes the DLC.
