Epic Games will be shutting down the multiplayer online battle arena game Paragon on April 26th when the company will take the game’s servers offline.
Epic Games issued an apology regarding it’s decision.
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.
Epic noted a decline in player population which is the cause for delays in matchmaking times and matchmaking quality, a big change from a time when it had 7 million registered players.
