    Default Marvel Heroes Shutting Down

    As someone who has almost 3,000 Hours in the game I am surprised the game lasted as long as it has.

    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.

    We’ve had the privilege of entertaining and collaborating with our players for over four years. We’re extremely humbled by that privilege and wanted to get this message out: Thank you. Thank you to our players, our tireless employees, and everyone involved in the life of Marvel Heroes, Marvel Heroes 2015, Marvel Heroes 2016, and Marvel Heroes Omega.

    Plenty of mmorpgs are older than Marvel Heroes.. you have http://www.kingdomofdrakkar.com/ 1989
    Nexus: The Kingdom of the Winds 1996
    Pristontale came out in 2001 in south korea and is still around today in Korea as well as being run by SubaGames

    The list goes on. I don't think anyone expects a game to last 50 years but you have some long standing games around.

    Yeah pretty much. I just feel bad from the console players they pretty much got scammed for a butt load of money thinking the game was going to last longer than a few months.

    I REALLY hope someone makes a private server. This is one terrible way to kill a game.
    Could have just fired the a$$hole and add a new boss. This is just too extreme to kill the whole game.

    Yea, well you have lots of people who doesn't want to assume the position. Probably the reason they killed it was because no one else want to take the helms.

    But what a year, so many sexual harassment scandal.

    This game started to fall apart shortly after Brevik left the team. They began to focus more on costumes and characters than actually releasing quality content. People got burned out and the forum became flooded with content requests, some being as simple as adding in new items to farm. All were shot down and given some lame excuse as to why they wouldn't be implemented, and if for some miraculous reason they would be placed in why they were constantly "delayed". I wont even go into the poor management, as a lot of it you all have pointed out. Shame too. The game was pretty good and I have hundreds of hours invested into it.

    My heart goes out to anyone that invested in the console port as they just lost a ton of money on a game that didn't even last half a year. From what I read Microsoft is potentially going to give a refund, but sony is sticking to their guns and still denying any refund requests.

    So a quick update. It seems that the game is shutting down earlier than the announced date. In fact its shutting down Nov 24th so this Friday.

    Yeah, and they have laid off the whole team, their health insurance even cuts off in eight days as one employee posted on twitter. With all this going on Sony still refuses to do any refunds while microsoft is doing full refunds.

    Game got shut down because :

    - brevik left and then a bunch more staff
    - the new management came out and admitted they IGNORED the entire pc crowd for 2 years, on purpose. No sugar coating, no offers of recompense
    - horrible design decisions (game was planned to turn mega p2w)
    - and then the sexual harassment shit was just the cherry on the top

    the game has been in trouble for years, nothing but lies and half truths and more "soon" 's than there are stars in the sky.

    It should be criminal the way some of these companies treat their cust****s and **** off with everyones money
