Fans of Marvel Heroes are in for some sad news. The free-to-play PC and console Diablo–inspired online game will be shutting down.
The news comes earlier today from Marvel, who announced that they would be terminating business with Gazillion Entertainment, the developer behind Marvel Heroes.
Gamestop reached out to Marvel and received a statement that elaborated on the matter, “We regret to inform our Marvel Heroes fans that we have ended our relationship with Gazillion Entertainment, and that the Marvel Heroes games will be shut down. We would like to sincerely thank the players who joined the Marvel Heroes community, and will provide any further updates as they become available.”
Further information is scarce as of the writing of this post. However, according to reports from Kotaku, the Gazillion offices have been quiet for some time, with even reports of employees being asked to not come into work.
Marvel Heroes first released back in 2013 for PC and was later brought over to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in early 2017.
