Resurrected MOBA Paragon is shutting down… again

Netmarble Announces Shutdown of Paragon: The Overprime

Developer Netmarble recently made the decision to shut down Paragon: The Overprime, a third-person MOBA game that served as a successor to the popular title Paragon. The game, which was released in late 2022 for PC, is set to end its service in April.

When Paragon closed its doors in 2018, Epic Games took a unique approach by releasing a plethora of assets for free on the Unreal Engine 4. This move inspired various developers to create their own versions of Paragon, including Omeda Studios’ Predecessor, which is still being updated in early access on Steam. Despite having permission to use the Paragon name, Paragon: The Overprime struggled to capture a substantial audience.

After facing declining player numbers over several months, Netmarble officially announced the end of service for Paragon: The Overprime in a blog post. The developer cited the inability to provide a stable and satisfactory service as the reason for the game’s closure.

Service for Paragon: The Overprime will cease at 00:00 EST on Monday, April 22, 2024, with in-game purchases already disabled as of 00:00 EST on February 22, 2024. Netmarble expressed regret for the abrupt termination of the service.

While Paragon: The Overprime may not have achieved the success it aimed for, it is disappointing to see its closure. Fans of the game can look toward Predecessor for a similar experience in the future.
