In a solemn post on their Steam page, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment told gamers that they will be ending support for their MOBA game Infinite Crisis on August 14. This is a surprise considering the game had its official launch only two months ago.
“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″ said staff member IC_Celestrata in the post. “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 post also let players know that anyone who purchased in-game content will be able to get a refund for their purchases through Steam’s internal support system. Until August, all in-game content, characters and customized costumes will be completely free for players to enjoy before Infinite Crisis powers down.
Some will say that this is an inevitability, with so many MOBAs on the market and more coming each day, but it is surprising that a game powered by a digital superpower like WB Games is one of the first to go. Personally, I will miss Infinite Crisis, if only for my attachment to the heroes and villains of the DC comics universe, alongside their parallel-dimension counterparts.
Goodnight Infinite Crisis. May flights of kryptonians sing thee to thy rest.
