Capcom and Telltale were the first to repsond telling Touch Arcade that games like The Walking Dead and The Wolf Among Us were only temporarily pulled due to a bug in iOS 9. They also ensured users that the games would reappear in their purchase histories once the apps were fixed and returned to the App Store.
