And another one bites the dust. Perfect World Entertainment and Motiga have announced that Gigantic will be shut down on July 31st. Gigantic was free to play and pits teams of five heroes—each with a massive guardian monster—against each other in explosive battles across a variety of fantasy battlefields.
The game promised to combine intense combat with strategic map control, and the first team to defeat the enemy guardian seizes the battlefield and wins the game.
According to the companies, the current state of the game has restricted options for further progress and relevant content updates.
“Discontinuing Gigantic was not an easy decision. The game is a unique and exciting experience that captured many hearts and minds. Unfortunately, it did not resonate with as many players as we’d hoped. Over the last several months, the teams at Motiga and Perfect World looked into viable options to sustain Gigantic. However, the current state of the game has restricted options for further progress and relevant content updates, and delivering basic features while also fixing long-standing issues was more complicated than expected. Despite our best efforts, we were unable to find an impactful solution that would help Gigantic break through in a crowded market.”
Perfect World Entertainment and Motiga have disabled the purchasing of Rubies and Hero Packs, meaning that all Heroes will be free (until the game is shut down). Currency will still be rewarded in-game, and any Crowns or Rubies gained by an account will remain available to purchase Shop items at discounted prices.
And that is that!
