“It’s time to give Gigantic one last hurrah!”
Even as the MOBA was given a death warrant earlier this year, you never got the sense that PWE disliked or was ashamed of the game at all. On the contrary, there seems to be some fondness for this MOBA-that-couldn’t, which is perhaps why the company is giving Gigantic a special sendoff.
Tomorrow, July 27th, the team will host a livestream to show off various content that never went live on the servers and give out Gigantic-themed swag to its community. Popular MOBA streamers will come to play a few last matches and give the game the farewell it deserves.
Gigantic had been in trouble since late 2017, when developer Motiga closed its doors. A couple of months after that, PWE announced that the game would be closing on July 31st, 2018, due to low numbers and revenue.
