Epic Games announces
will close down as of April 26th,
saying they "feel there isn't a clear path" to grow their MOBA to the point that
it "retains enough players to be sustainable." They take full responsibility,
apologizing for failing to deliver on the game's promise, and they are offering
refunds to everyone who bought the game.
Less than two weeks ago
admitted that they were deciding on the future of the game after it started
being overshadowed by Fortnite and its free-to-play battle royale mode. Now the
other shoe has dropped:
It’s with heavy hearts we’ve decided to close down Paragon.
We truly appreciate everything you’ve put into Paragon. We received many
passionate ideas for where to take the game; the outpouring of thoughtful
suggestions is another testament to this incredible community.
After careful consideration, and many difficult internal debates, we feel there
isn’t a clear path for us to grow Paragon into a MOBA that retains enough
players to be sustainable.
We didn’t execute well enough to deliver on the promise of Paragon. We have
failed you -- despite the team’s incredibly hard work -- and we’re sorry.
To try to make this right, Epic is offering a full refund to every Paragon
player for every purchase on any platform. This refund will come directly from
Epic rather than your platform provider.
To request your refund, follow these steps:
If you’re not playing on PC,
link your Epic account
(create one if necessary).
If you play on PC, or have already linked your Epic account, you can request
your refund here.
We’ll continue operating Paragon servers until April 26, 2018. As the player
population continues to decrease, matchmaking times and quality will further
