Perfect World Entertainment and Mortiga announced that Gigantic will be closing down on July 31, 2018. The game was first released on July 20, 2017. In the meantime, players will be able to access all Heroes for free.
The announcement was posted on the Gigantic website in January. Those who are still playing the game can access all of the Heroes for free, including the Heroes that were newly released. The purchasing of Rubies and Hero Packs has been disabled. Currency will still be rewarded in-game, and any Crowns or Rubies gained by an account will remain available to purchase Shop items at discounted prices.
From the announcement:
Discontinuing Gigantic was not an easy decision. The game is a unique and exciting experience that captured many hearts and minds. Unfortunately, it did not resonate with as many players as we’d hoped. Over the last several months, the teams at Motiga and Perfect World looked into viable options to sustain Gigantic. However, the current state of the game has restricted options for further progress and relevant content updates, and delivering basic features while also fixing long-standing issues was more complicated than expected. Despite our best efforts, we were unable to find an impactful solution that would help Gigantic break through in a crowded market.
Gigantic is a 6×6 Strategic Hero Shooter with MOBA elements where players battle against and alongside massive Guardians, in deeply strategic team gameplay.
