RPG Marvel Heroes Is Shutting Down

In the coming few days Gazillion Entertainments RPG, Marvel Heroes will be shutting down due to the end of the working relationship between the studiop and Marvel/ Disney.

In an email to Kotaku, a representative for Marvel said that, “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 couple of employees, including one that is currently employed at Gazillion noted that the company has been laying off employees roughly a year after launch. It was also revealed to Kotaku that several employees working on the game were told to not come in. The title has been in a state of suspension to some fans considering that there has been no relevant Thor: Ragnarok content releasing alongside the film.

Marvel Heroes’ former creative director Jeff Donais, reassured the public that the terminated relationship was definitely not as a result of internal issues

“Would definitely not be the fault of the internal men and women who actually worked on the game itself or served the customers…It was a real thing that people didn’t see their families as much as they should, or sacrificed their health to work an 80-hour week when an important patch deadline was looming…The patch release schedule, especially when PC was the main focus, was aggressively insane.”
