The official Twitter account for Marvel Heroes Omega has announced that Gazillion Entertainment has closed. As a result of that, Marvel Heroes Omega has shut down. The game was originally meant to shut down on December 31st. However, and since the dev team is no more, the game is also shutting down immediately.

According to MassivelyOP, banking creditors have effectively pulled the plug on Gazillion. This lead to the termination of almost every employee at the studio and the apparent renege of benefits including accrued PTO.
And that is that, there is nothing more to add here. Marvel Heroes originally came out in 2013 and Gazillion tried its best to keep this game alive. The game received numerous updates and was a free-to-play title.
To be honest, I wasn’t really a fan of this game but I can understand those that enjoyed it. But that’s a bit irrelevant. Marvel Heroes Omega was a Diablo-like free-to-play massively multiplayer online action role-playing game that came out on pretty much all platforms.
Marvel Heroes Omega was also the first action RPG that featured RAIDs. In raid encounters, 10 grouped players attack a series of unique bosses, and each encounter featured a timer and a death limit.

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
