Kicking off 2022 in Games

With the recent release of the terrible Dungeons & Dragons Dark Alliance comes word that the Diablo-style action-RPG Magic: Legends is shutting down for good on PC. Meaning, it's not going to leave Open Beta. For Wizards of the Coast (which owns Magic: The Gathering and Dungeons & Dragons) things aren't exactly going well in the game publishing and licensing space.

Since hitting beta on the Epic Games Store, even though it featured an interesting blend of deck-building and real-time combat, Magic: Legends was heavily criticised for its use of microtransactions and somewhat poor overall design. Development was handled by Cryptic Studios, a team with plenty of MMO experience (Star Trek Online, Neverwinter).

"It is with heavy hearts that we announce Magic: Legends will be shutting down on October 31, 2021," begins the announcement by Cryptic Studios via the official blog. "All players who spent money in-game across Arc and the Epic Games Store during the Open Beta will be refunded their full purchase amounts. Servers will remain open for play until closing day, however we will be closing the Zen Shop effective immediately. Later this week, all items will instead be purchasable using Aether, our free in-game currency."

"Our vision for Magic: Legends missed the mark, but we are proud of what we achieved," the post continues. "Thanks to Wizards of the Coast, we got to bring the expansive Magic: The Gathering Multiverse to a wide audience and explore new angles within the established ARPG genre. We learned several valuable lessons along the way, and we will use them to improve Cryptic’s future development efforts."

As per above the servers are set to be shutdown for good on October 31 2021. Which also means the game will not be coming to Steam or consoles.
