Epic Games To Shut Down Paragon on 26th of April

👤by Michael Pabia Comments 📅29.01.2018 22:07:05

Paragon, a MOBA game published by Epic Games in 2016, will be shutdown this 26th of April 2018. Paragon is an action-packed free-to-play online battle arena game powered by Epic Game’s own Unreal Engine 4. Watch the game trailer below.

Unfortunately, Epic Games will be shutting down the game after much deliberation and concluding that the game doesn’t have a clear path to grow into a big enough MOBA game with substantial active players. The developers state that they weren’t able to deliver a promised Paragon game that will suit the likes and preferences of gamers today. Read the full statement from the Paragon Team below.

Hey Everyone,

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 degrade. Thank you for joining us on this journey and for your dedication to Paragon.

-The Paragon Team
