Following news that the majority of Paragon‘s development team has been moved over to Fortnite, Epic Games has announced that the game will be closing its doors later this year.
In an update on the game’s site, it was announced that the servers will be taken offline for the final time on April 26th, 2018. According to the developer, the decision was made due to there being no clear path to grow Paragon into a game that can retain enough players to be sustainable.
“It’s with heavy hearts we’ve decided to close down Paragon,” the developer wrote. “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.”
As an apology to players, Epic is offering full refunds to every Paragon player for every purchase made on any platform. To request a refund, link your Epic Games account and then head on over to this link.
