Epic Games to Officially Shut Down Paragon

Fornite Announce New Sniper Game Mode for Battle Royale

While Epic has been claiming that the game is under active development, recent problems with its more popular Fortnite battle royale game appear to have done for the MOBA with the announcement that Paragon is to be shut down this April - without ever having left beta.

For those who have spent real-world cash on the game, either to access its initial paid-for test or as part of the game's microtransaction monetisation system, Epic is offering full and complete refunds across all platforms ahead of the servers being deactivated on April 26th 2018. The Unreal Engine 4 MOBA will be shutting down April 26, but getting into a match before then may prove hard, as the player population decreases. "Second, a number of Paragon team members jumped onto Fortnite to help sustain the game as it has grown far larger than anything in Epic's past".

On January 29th, it was announced that a "Sniper Shootout" game mode will be available to players for a limited time until February 2nd.

Complete shutdown observed in IOK against Killing of two youth

We didn't execute well enough to deliver on the promise of Paragon. Did any of you guys play Paragon?

One of the downsides to the massive success of Epic Games' Fortnite and specifically its Battle Royale mode which has been able to effectively compete head to head with current gaming darling PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, is that other Epic projects have really suffered. You can disable the automatic team-filling option if you don't have any buddies to play with and you're exhausted of being matched up with teammates who never try to revive you even if you're holding your guts in right next to them (yep, still salty over here). If you're playing on console, you'll need to link your Epic account to your PSN or Xbox Live.

The studio went on to note that the quality and matchmaking times for Paragon will continue to degrade as the player base dwindles in the run up to the closing date.
