Gigantic’s last matches are now playing out ahead of tomorrow’s sunset

There will be no stay of execution for the gorgeous MOBA Gigantic, as PWE has put up a countdown clock for the game’s final day.

“Discontinuing Gigantic was a very painful decision,” the studio reiterates. “Unfortunately its uniqueness did not resonate with as many players as we’d hoped. Despite our best efforts, we were unable to find an impactful solution to maintain the game and allow Gigantic to break through in a crowded market. One last Gigantic thank you to our amazing community for finding joy and entertainment in a game we worked so hard to make for you. The good memories will always live on!”

The sunset was originally announced back in January, though it didn’t come as a surprise even then, as PWE had already shuttered Motiga, the studio that built and ran it.

Gigantic isn’t the only game PWE is disappearing this summer; in fact, it shut down Swordsman and Jade Dynasty last month.

MOP’s Stream Team will be taking one last look at Gigantic tomorrow starting at 10 a.m. EDT – we’ll be there when the lights go dark at 11.

To each their own, the gameplay was the best of the game for me.

Going to miss this one. I haven’t played in awhile thanks to the long queue times and bot matches get boring in a hurry. The art style alone made it visual joy. It’s especially sad with hard a time they had getting it out.

Before I moves to Windows 7 and had Windows 10, I could play it on a PC with 4 GB RAM, but when I was with Windows 7 on Steam it wanted me to have at least 6 GB RAM. Back when I could play it, it would freezw eveey time on the character select screen so when it unfreezwd, all good charactera arw picked. I could never play that frog guy.

Now I have 8 GB RAM, but I sropped caring about this game lonf ago.

I’d buy a single player PVE of the game, the looks and implied lore are amazing imho.

With all the issues that plagued Gigantic, the gripes i had with the game, and the personal frustration that was having a crash everytime i Alttabbed because this game consumed an atrocious ammount of memory…

It was one of the best experiences of my life. The gameplay was incredible, and high octane. The character concepts were extremely awesome, no need for sexualization or nothing of the sorts, they were incredible, and even with just a few maps, the game itself offered so much different experiences, it was awesome.

I hope to see a game based off it someday, that demands less. Other than that, best of luck to everyone that worked on it, and may we Tripp somewhere down the road.

G’night.
