Servers will be shut down on April 26.
Epic Games is shutting down its free-to-play MOBA Paragon in April.
As detailed on a recent blog post, Epic will continue operating Paragon servers until April 26. Until then, matchmaking times and quality will continue to degrade throughout these few months as the player population decreases.
“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,” reads Epic’s statement. “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.”
Epic will be offering a full refund to every Paragon player for every purchase they’ve made in the game on any platform. For non-PC players requesting their refunds, you have to link your Epic account here. For PC players who already have their account linked, you can request a refund here.
This decision comes after Epic announced earlier this month it’ll be slowing down Paragon development and moving members from the Paragon team over to work on its successful sandbox survival game Fortnite.
