Snippet -

We can now confirm this as real, following a statement made by a Marvel representative to Massively OP. We’re updating below.

According to Kotaku, Disney has canceled Marvel Heroes – on all platforms – and nuked its business partnership with Gazillion. Here’s the message Kotaku says it received:

“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.”

The news will not come as a shock to MMORPG players, as we’ve been chronicling the mess over at Gazillion for weeks now. We’d gone an entire month since the last formal update from the team, social media accounts have lain dormant, Halloween was bungled, negative Steam reviews were flooding in, the PC playerbase shrunk to its smallest size in four and a half years, the Thor Ragnarok promotion never happened, two community reps for the studio departed, and accusations flew from former studio employees in regard to “inappropriate conduct” toward female employees on the part of current CEO Dave Dohrmann, whose removal from the studio became the goal of some activist players.

And the Deep State whispered to Trump “You can’t withstand the storm”, to which Trump replied
“I am the storm”

We've granted 1000 Gs on PC for all players, and will do so daily. All items should now be 50Gs.

This is the best current solution we have with limited resources and technical limitations of the PC, and wanted to make sure this got out to you. Due to technical limitations on PC, we cannot make all store items available for Eternity Splinters (and can't do this without a patch, either). There is also inventory technical game-breaking issues if we make everything available for 0 or 1G. Currently all prices are reduced to 50 Gs while each day you log in you will receive 1000 Gs. Game on.

Marvel Heroes Shutting Down Amid Brewing Sexual Misconduct Allegations

Snippet -

Some people thought this was odd because the developers had plans to unleash a major update for the game, but that won’t be happening. The game was also recently ported to the Xbox One and PS4 back in June of this year, which makes this move to shut the game down look all the more odd.

On the official forums Gazillion announced that gamers have up until December 31st, 2017 to get in game time before Marvel Heroes shuts down after being in operation for over four years. The statement reads…

“We’re sad to inform our players and our entire Marvel Heroes family that Marvel Heroes Omega will be shutting down. The Marvel Heroes servers will stay on until Dec 31, 2017, and we’ll be removing real money purchases as soon as possible. Players will be able to play the game entirely for free once this sunset period commences. We will share the exact date things go completely free as soon as we can.“

While the allegations of sexual misconduct may have arose during the Harvey Weinstein brouhaha, Disney nor Gazillion have confirmed that the shut down is due to those allegations. However, Gazillion now carries the taint of sexual misconduct allegations looming over the company from here on out, and this all comes amid the game being shut down this December.
