Epic Closing Down Paragon In April

Epic is closing down their action MOBA Paragon on April 26. The studio announced that they would be shutting down service for the game in the coming months after being unable to find a path to success for it. The forthright blog post on the subject describes the situation for the game, saying that there is no feasible solution to maintaining the player numbers the game would require to keep going.

"We didn’t execute well enough to deliver on the promise of Paragon," the post from the Paragon team reads. "We have failed you – despite the team’s incredibly hard work – and we’re sorry." Epic is supplying refunds for Paragon for both PC and PlayStation 4. Unlike normal refund methods, the refund is coming from Epic itself, rather than through, for example, Sony. Those seeking a refund will need to link their Epic account first and, after that, access the refund page here. Paragon first went on sale in March 2016 and went into free-to-play early access almost a year later in February.
