Fortnite Battle Royale Has a New Sniper Shootout Mode Available Right Now

In a blog post detailing the shutdown, the Paragon team said: "We truly appreciate everything you've put into Paragon". Well, Epic Games will be shutting it down on April 26th as it can not grow it into a MOBA that retains enough players to be sustainable. We have failed you - despite the team's incredibly hard work - and we're sorry.

"It's with heavy hearts we've made a decision to close down Paragon", the message says.

The cancellation comes as Epic's Fortnite was hit by a weekend of instability and downtime caused, the company claims, by a 'big bump in player count [causing] a ton of issues.

The news will not come as a complete shock to Paragon players - two weeks ago, Epic Games took to Reddit to admit that: "Progress has been slower lately for two reasons: First, the team's time is split between immediate improvements and longer-term efforts, so there's less visible progress". It utilized a third-person perspective a little like Smite, but brought to bear a much more streamlined laning experience, as well as gorgeous Unreal Engine graphics and all of the spit and polish you would expect from a AAA Epic Game. If you did on any platform, Epic is offering a full refund.


Interestingly, Epic will be refunding anybody who spent money on the game's microtransactions. You can disable the automatic team-filling option if you don't have any buddies to play with and you're exhausted of being matched up with teammates who never try to revive you even if you're holding your guts in right next to them (yep, still salty over here).

Epic's MOBA will be shutting down on the 26th of April.

If you're not playing on PC, link your Epic account (create one if necessary). However, as an online-based game, Epic warns, "As the player population continues to decrease, matchmaking times and quality will further degrade".
