Marvel Heroes Omega is offline on all platforms.

Update: As rumoured, Gazillion Entertainment has closed Marvel Heroes Omega on all platforms – PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

The game was due to survive until December 31, but the plug has been pulled unceremoniously with the closing of Gazillion Entertainment. Here’s a brief statement:

Original story: Last week, we found out that Disney is shutting Marvel Heroes, which only recently made its way from PC to consoles, would be shut down. The Diablo-like game starred various heroes from the Marvel universe, complete with tie-ins for the various films as they released.

Since that original story went up, a date of closure was announced – December 31, the end of the year. Now, in an unfortunate turn, we’re hearing word that the game’s closure has been moved forward to November 24 – tomorrow – and that the developer responsible for the game is being disbanded, leaving employees without jobs right before Thanksgiving. Worst yet, it seems that they haven’t received any severance pay.

This was reported by Massively OP, which received a tip from a former employee who said that all staff had been let go. Since then, other evidence has popped up, including numerous tweets from former staff.

This screen from the company’s Discord lists the new date of closure. It’s a bad situation for all involved, and the employees not receiving their PTO or severance, right before Thanksgiving, is pretty horrible.

Our thoughts are with all the employees affected by this – and hopefully we’ll have more details soon, if an official statement is made.
