Epic Games have had a very successful 2017 with Fortnite. Unfortunately, they have announced some sad news regarding to one of their products. On April 26th, all servers for the free-to-play MOBA Paragon will be shut down.
In a recent blog post, the Paragon team noted their appreciation for all the suggestions and everything else the community has done over the years. In the end, the team decided the path to success and sustainability was no longer clear. The team goes on to say
“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.”
The servers will stay up until April 26th, but as the player count decreases, matchmaking times and overall quality will continue to dwindle.
In an effort to make things right, Epic Games will be offering full refunds to every Paragon player. This includes refunds for the purchase of the game and anything else purchased in the game. For non-PC players, you can link your Epic Account here. For PC players with accounts already linked, you can request a refund here. In the end of the article, the team thanks the community for their dedication and for being apart of this journey.
While this is sad news for fans, it should come with no surprise. Last week, Epic Games announced they were slowing down development on Paragon and increasing the team’s focus on supporting Fortnite. Since Fortnite‘s release, the game has been a huge success for Epic Games and with the updates planned for 2018, success will surely continue.
