Disney Shuts Down Marvel Heroes

Disney Shuts Down Marvel Heroes

This employee may have been one of the luckier ones, as two former Gazillion workers confirmed to Kotaku that there were three rounds of firings within a year of the game's launch, and that this very week, "several individuals who work on the game were asked not to come in". The game also featured locations familiar to Marvel Comics fans, like the Raft, Latveria and Asgard.

On Wednesday, Comic Con in London, Vice President Franchise Creative and Marketing for Marvel Studios, Dave Bushore and Creative Director of Disneyland Paris, Mark Huffman announced that the Marvel Super Heroes will be coming to Disneyland Paris between Jun. 10 and September 30.

Kotaku reports that Marvel is terminating its business relationship with Gazillion Entertainment, the company that makes Marvel Heroes.

Marvel Heroes launched on PC back in 2013.

The company's distance from 52-week high price is -27.11% and the current price is 35.39% away from 52-week low price. Investors might also notice that two months ago the Buy recommendations (1) outnumbered Sell recommendations (0).

Despite the game having a decent following, numbers had started to decline and Gazillion had gone rather quite with a notable absence of updates on official channels.

The Marvel Super Heroes will feature in the Walt Disney Studios Park for epic shows.

It's sad to see an MMO go down the drain like this, but often big corporations don't end partnerships on a whim. The game will be shut down. Gazillion issued a statement on their forums. Making too many moves such as today's news could give the brand a risky reputation in the eyes of elite studios who might then pass on working with Marvel developing gaming properties. It's likely something that gets loopholed through LEGO's licensing deal with multiple brands but probably does not sit well with Disney brass. Thank you to our players, our tireless employees, and everyone involved in the life of Marvel Heroes, Marvel Heroes 2015, Marvel Heroes 2016, and Marvel Heroes Omega. If you're a diehard Marvel fan with a PlayStation 4 or Xbox One, you owe it to yourself to download and play Marvel Heroes Omega while you still can.
