Earlier today, Patrick Hudson, the CEO of Robot Entertainment announced that they’ll be closing down Orcs Must Die! Unchained, Hero Academy, and Hero Academy 2. The servers will officially shut down on April 8th, 2019.
As of the announcement, all players who log into Orcs Must Die! Unchained and Hero Academy 2 will receive a substantial “free grant” of hard and soft currencies, to make the remaining weeks of live play more memorable. You may have to wait up to 24 hours for the grant to arrive in your account.
Apparently the games have been losing money for the company for some time now and they just couldn’t cover the operational costs while developing the 2 new games they’re hoping to announce in 2019.
You can find the closure notice on the Robot Entertainment site.
