Gigantic Is Shutting Down On July 31

In an official statement posted today Perfect World Entertainment announced the upcoming closure of their action MOBA Gigantic. This month's update will be the last for Gigantic, though the servers will remain open until July 31, 2018.

The news won't be much of a shock to those who have been following the troubled game's development. Perfect World already closed Motiga, the studio behind Gigantic, back in November 2017.

As a final thank you to long time players, all Heroes will be available for free until the shut down date. The premium currency and Hero Packs have been disabled. The decision to close Gigantic still didn't come easy, it truly offered a different take on the MOBA genre. We're sure the developers behind Gigantic will move on to other great projects, both within Perfect World Entertainment's portfolio and elsewhere in the industry.

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.
