As we reported last week, Marvel Heroes Omega would close sooner than expected, with the entire staff of Gazillion let go.
Today, we got official confirmation that Gazillion Entertainment has indeed shuttered via Marvel Heroes’ official Twitter.
With the official announcement of the closure, the free-to-play action/RPG can no longer operate and will cease operation on all platforms immediately, which include PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Mac. Originally, players were told December 31 was the cut-off for Marvel Omega Heroes, but that’s no longer the case given the circumstances.
The goodbye tweet, which you can see below, thanked fans for their support.

The news came right before the Thanksgiving holiday, devastating the staff, who said they were told no severance or PTO would be paid out.

It’s always sad to see a studio close and watch people lose their jobs alongside a game ending its run earlier than promised. We’re wishing the best of luck to everyone who was affected by this closure, hoping they land back on their feet as soon as possible. The news isn’t surprising considering what we heard earlier, but this makes it official, ending any speculation about Gazillion or Marvel Heroes’ future.
