Paragon Is Shutting Down On April 26
Epic’s MOBA Paragon is shutting down. In a website post, Epic have informed its community that the game will be gone forever come the 26th of April 2018. Over the past month or so, the notion of the game going down this path became more realistic.
Developers Epic themselves recently revealed that a majority of the devs were moved to Fortnite due to the success it has garnered since Battle Royale. As a result, Paragon is simply not getting the attention it deserves. Here’s the post below.
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.”
