Infinite Crisis is shutting down on August 14th

DC-themed superhero MOBA Infinite Crisis is shutting down on August 14th, according to an announcement posted on the front page of Turbine’s official site.

After much deliberation, we regret to announce the official shutdown of Infinite Crisis. We will end development efforts today and will close the service on August 14, 2015.

Between now and August 14th, the game will remain available to play completely free. If you have any questions, contact Customer Service for assistance at http://support.infinitecrisis.com.

This was an extremely difficult decision to make. On behalf of the entire Infinite Crisis team we want to thank all of you for your feedback, support and for joining together to create one of the best communities in gaming.

The announcement is echoed on the official forums by Community Manager Celestrata. The game officially launched in March of this year after an extended testing period and impressed even MMORPG critics.

Art Director Floon suggests there might be refunds and explains the reasoning behind the decision:

Contact support at http://support.infinitecrisis.com/ to discuss a refund.

No one is more disappointed than the dev team. The project faced a lot of development challenges, both technical and design, and the team learned a lot and grew strong tackling all of them. Unfortunately, as the MOBA market matured around us as we were building the game, we simply couldn’t find enough of an audience.

I was looking forward to working on this game for a long time. Thank you, to everyone who played and enjoyed the game.

We’ve reached out to Turbine for more information. Our sympathies extend to everyone affected by the impending sunset.

shadowlo I tried it, its not bad, but no where as good as LoL and Dota2.  I think what killed it was the community, a lot of LoL players berating IC fans i think.  The few days i tried there was always someone making fun of people playing the game over LoL or Dota2.  but thats just from my personal experience since i truly suck at pvp and mobas

BalsBigBrother DugFromTheEarth You’d think with the glut of movies and tv shows it would be a different case. By the way, who all saw that Supergirl pilot?

Klaus92 playerxx DugFromTheEarth Well, not discrediting any of the movies, but the only “HOLYFUCKAWESOME” part of avengers 1 was the 10 last minutes of world cracking fightning.
Which made the 1h i spent almost snoring at loki’s face pretty worthy.
