Marvel Heroes Is Shutting Down
Everything sounds great on paper and the game garnered many fans, but apparently things weren’t going so smoothly behind the scenes. Marvel/Disney made the announcement official this week via email, letting players know that the game would be coming to a close. An update sent to Kotaku goes a step further, letting folks know that the closure will come sometime after 2017 wraps up, but we doubt you should plan on playing much longer than that. Also, the ability to buy items within the game has already been disabled. Despite the fact that this is always a risk with these types of games (heck, even with a game like World of Warcraft), fans are not too pleased and already asking for refunds for their digital purchases. Sorry folks, but that’s kind of how this works. It sucks, but nobody was ever promised an infinite lifespan and, again, the writing was pretty much on the wall for Marvel Heroes.
