While both projects were at various stages of development, the Telltale closing left a lot of questions in the air as to the status of each of these projects.

It’s big news that Telltale Games is shutting up shop and cancelling future projects, and one of its partners is talking about the demise of shared projects. With Telltale closing, Netflix is looking at the future of some its projects including both Stranger Things and Minecraft: Story Mode interactive games.

While both projects were at various stages of development, the Telltale closing left a lot of questions in the air as to the status of each of these projects. Netflix has been happy to oblige those with questions as the company took a moment to update the status of each project. Here’s what the company told Variety:

 “We are saddened by the news about Telltale Games – they developed many great games in the past and left an indelible mark in the industry. Minecraft: Story Mode is still moving forward as planned.  We are in the process of evaluating other options for bringing the Stranger Things universe to life in an interactive medium.”

So it appears that Minecraft: Story Mode will be moving forward. As far as Stranger Things is concerned, it’s going nowhere and it’s getting there fast. Even so, not all may be los as the streaming giant is apparently looking at other avenues for the game.

If anyone could have pulled off a Stranger Things video game, it would have been Telltale. Of course, maybe this means another company will pick the game up. For the meantime, however, it appears that Eleven, upside down, and everyone else will currently only be seen on a streaming device near you.

What are your thoughts on the Telltale closing? Were you looking forward to either project? How do you feel about the Stranger Things game being dead in the water?  Let us know in the comments below or on Google+Twitter, or Facebook.
