Disney Shuts Down Marvel Heroes

Disney and Marvel are shutting down free-to-play action RPG Marvel Heroes.

In part with this decision, Disney has ended its relationship with Marvel Heroes publisher, Gazillion Entertainment, according to a statement IGN received from Marvel Entertainment.

“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,” a representative for Marvel Entertainment confirmed.

As noted by Kotaku, some signs of trouble at Gazillion arose when the developer missed several weekly community updates.

Players have been able to enjoy the PC version for years, with Marvel Heroes: Omega launching on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in June of this year. The game has featured heroes from every corner of the Marvel Universe, recently adding Black Bolt and Loki to consoles. It has also seen multiple tie-ins to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, including releases for films this year like Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Originally released in June of 2013, the free-to-play game initially received mixed reviews, but over time Gazillion has consistently improved the game, also adding many fan-favorite characters
