Epic Games is Shutting Down Paragon in April

Epic Games is shutting down free-to-play MOBA Paragon in April. This falls in line with their recent decision to focus exclusively on development for Fortnite.

As detailed in a recent blog post, Epic will continue operating Paragon's servers until April 26. Until then, matchmaking times and quality will continue to degrade throughout these few months as the player population decreases.

"After careful consideration, and many difficult internal debates, we feel there isn't a clear path for us to grow Paragon into a MOBA that retains enough players to be sustainable," reads Epic's statement. "We didn't execute well enough to deliver on the promise of Paragon. We have failed you — despite the team's incredibly hard work — and we're sorry."

Epic will be offering a full refund to every Paragon player for every purchase they've made in the game on any platform. For non-PC players requesting their refunds, you have to link your Epic account here. For PC players who already have their account linked, you can request a refund here.

Considering all the other MOBAs closing their doors did not offer refunds or only offered partial refunds, this move is incredibly generous of Epic and is likely affordable for the company because of how successful Fortnite has been.
