    a date was listed on the official MHO forums.

    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.

    -edit 2- they are also giving 1000 G's a day in the PC version and making everything cost sweet f all, and on the Consoles every hero and costume is 1G or 1Eternity Shard to unlock each.
    since its going to be dead in 6 weeks they just making it all easy to get.

    This sucks. I spent so much time and money on this game and I was looking forward to them implementing new changes they had mentioned, but it became clear months ago that things weren't going well.

    I agree, spent $200 + on G's for this game, very disappointing

    I spent maybe 10x that but I've been playing since beta. Still regret not buying the Ultimate Founders pack when I had the chance.

    Are you aware that you and VanJeans are part of the problem? Dropping $2000 on a game for in-game items?

    Can almost understand VanJeans. But $2000?

    You're the whale.

    so now the company has been shut down, everyone has been fired, not paid out, and all that stuff the day before thanksgiving.

    and the servers are being shutdown on the 24th of November 2017 now.

    http://massivelyop.com/2017/11/22/ru...d-of-the-year/
    Massively OP has received a credible tip from a former Gazillion employee who told us under condition of anonymity that Marvel Heroes will be over significantly sooner than Disney and Marvel previously declared.

    The ex-employee says he was terminated as of today, that Gazillion is being shut down entirely, and that Marvel Heroes will sunset this coming Friday, not at the end of the year as originally announced.

    The termination letter written by CEO Dave Dohrmann was shared with Massively OP and claims that banking creditors have effectively pulled the plug on the company, leading to the termination of almost every employee at the studio and the apparent renege of benefits including accrued PTO.


    A representative for Marvel told us last week that the game would remain online until the end of December, but the letter says that Marvel directed Gazillion to prepare the sunset ASAP; we expect an announcement soon. You can read up on the whole sorry saga in our last summary.

    We have reached out to Gazillion, Marvel, and Disney for comment. Our hearts go out to the innocent devs whose holidays and lives just got flung into turmoil.

    Update: Former Gaz gameplay engineer Andrew Hair has now publicly cross-corroborated on Twitter parts of the letter we received from our source. “I know a lot of people are upset and wanting refunds for their purchases in Marvel Heroes,” he wrote, “but please keep in mind the developers were not paid out PTO, severance, and our medical insurance is ending in 8 days.”
