DC’s Infinite Crisis, the multiplayer online battle arena video game based on DC Entertainment’s superheroes, will close down just six months after its official launch.
News of the shutdown came via a post on the message boards of the game’s official website, in which community manager Celestrata wrote that the decision to close came “after much deliberation.”
“We will end development efforts today and will close the service on August 14, 2015,” the message explained. “This was an extremely difficult decision to make. On behalf of the entire Infinite Crisis we want to thank all of you for your feedback, support and for joining together to create one of the best communities in gaming.”
Those gamers who have purchased the Starter or Elite packs will be able to apply for refunds, the game will remain free-to-play until the closure date in August.
The decision to shut down the game may come as a shock to many players given that as recently as last month, new characters were being teased as future additions to the game, whether these now go ahead is unknown but unlikely.
No official reason has been given for the closure.
