‘Marvel Heroes’ Shuts Down A Month Early, Making Fans Irate

Earlier this month we told you about how Marvel Heroes developer Gazillion Entertainment laid off all of the company’s employees just before Thanksgiving (without PTO or severance pay, no less) and were shutting the game down on December 31st, 2017. This came as Disney severed its ties to the company, which was the catalyst for the game coming to an end. Now what few fans of the game remain are about to be even more disappointed as this tweet was sent out, letting people know the game would be shutting down immediately with little warning.

As a little bit of justice, both Microsoft and Sony are providing refunds back to players who purchased the game, so there’s a bit of a silver lining to the entire thing. But the entire way this was handled from the layoffs before a holiday to lying to the fans about keeping the service open… there are a few people in charge who will probably never be trusted in this industry again.
