Epic Games announced on January 25th, 2018 that they would be shutting down Paragon for PC and PlayStation 4 on April 26th. Epic also stated it would offer full refunds for any purchase in the game, made by any player, on any platform. The game’s website was replaced with the official statement which reads:
It’s with heavy hearts we’ve decided to close down Paragon.
We truly appreciate everything you’ve put into Paragon. We received many passionate ideas for where to take the game; the outpouring of thoughtful suggestions is another testament to this incredible community.
After careful consideration, and many difficult internal debates, we feel there isn’t a clear path for us to grow Paragon into a MOBA that retains enough players to be sustainable.
We didn’t execute well enough to deliver on the promise of Paragon. We have failed you — despite the team’s incredibly hard work — and we’re sorry.
To try to make this right, Epic is offering a full refund to every Paragon player for every purchase on any platform. This refund will come directly from Epic rather than your platform provider.
To request your refund, follow these steps:
If you’re not playing on PC, link your Epic account (create one if necessary).
If you play on PC, or have already linked your Epic account, you can request your refund here.
We’ll continue operating Paragon servers until April 26, 2018. As the player population continues to decrease, matchmaking times and quality will further degrade.
Thank you for joining us on this journey and for your dedication to Paragon.
As of January 27th, 2018, the game’s North American PlayStation Store page had not yet been updated to reflect the decision but all paid add-on content had been removed. The game had been completely removed from the Australian and European PlayStation Stores by this date.
