Goodbye Infinite Crisis

In October 2014 Warner Bros. Games released the DC Comics version of a multiplayer online battle arena game. Now as WB Games disclosed on their website, Infinite Crisis will be no more, ending its activity on August 14.

"After much deliberation, we regret to announce the official shutdown of Infinite Crisis. We will end development efforts today and will close the service on August 14, 2015."

You can still play the game for free until that date and enjoy its last breaths. I played a bunch of MOBAs and can say Infinite Crisis was definitely not one of the better ones. It had its issues at the beginning and never really convinced me to be a good game. I am a DC comics fan but if that is the only reason for a game to be attractive, it's not a big of a suprise that it has to end, just like with Guardians of Middle-Earth, which was developed and taken care by Turbine as well as Infinite Crisis.

"This was an extremely difficult decision to make. On behalf of the entire Infinite Crisis team we want to thank all of you for your feedback, support and for joining together to create one of the best communities in gaming."

Currently Turbine is working on a mobile Batman game, called Batman: Arkham Underworld, and has Lord of the Ring: Online still going since 2007, which is a rather good sign. What will happen to Turbine, we don't know yet. In 2014, they had to lay off a bunch of employees, let's hope for the best and expect something good out of this. We don't need bad games, and they understand this obviously. Goodbye, Infinite Crisis!
