Publisher Tencent has come to an amicable decision with Hi-Rez Studios to shut down Paladins in China. The decision comes roughly three years since the team-based shooter was confirmed for the region.
According to an announcement from Tencent as translated by MMO Culture, the contract between Tencent and Hi-Rez has ended and both sides agreed that there will not be a renewal. Paladins will go dark in China on Saturday, November 30th, at 12:00 p.m. local time.
As for the shooter’s fortunes here in the West, things seem to be reasonably healthy if Steam Charts is any indicator. Paladins has logged a 24-hour peak of over 16,000 players, though that’s a mere fraction of the over 60k players that were in-game at its all-time peak.
