Turbine’s DC Comics-flavored MOBA perhaps never rose to the lofty heights that were anticipated for it, and so the game will be shut down on Aug. 14, according to a statement on its website. The game officially launched just over two months ago. It will continue to be free until the shutdown.

While it’s certainly sad news for fans of the game and the staff at Turbine, it doesn’t come as a complete surprise. It didn’t rank in the top 4 in MOBA market share, according to a recent EEDAR report, and that Turbine “leaker” from a few months back said that Infinite Crisis cost a lot of money and “tanked badly,” peaking at 1,000 concurrent users.

If you tried or were an avid player of Infinite Crisis, what do you think of the news? Gone too soon or deserving to be shuttered?

    *Sigh* all that work to get The Cycle achievement and icon, all the fights against KoH and other pro groups and the fustration. The anger that they made Coast City (Which NOBODY Liked) their only open map leaving the Gotham Heights and Gotham Divided players in the cold (We left, that’s why they’re shutting down, those of us who paid in cash for things like skins and such were snubbed and ignored so we took our money elsewhere). All of that and in the end in less than a year they’re closing. I really liked a lot of the characters and the voice acting, the way some moves worked with others and it’s all down the drain because of…Beancounters and Devs Who Don’t F-Ing Listen to their customers.

    Well, Good Riddance, maybe next time they’ll learn to listen.

    It comes to no surprise, with MOBA’s like League of Legends and Dota 2, you really have to bring something to the table that hasn’t been done before that could bring a large amount of people over to it, which sadly DC wasn’t able to do. Ah well you can’t win them all.

    I’m terribly sad that Infinite Crisis is shutting down. It was one of the only moba’s I truly enjoyed and played. My viewer base on twitch mostly consists of Infinite crisis fans, so what will happen to all the great streamers of this game once it’s gone? This game I might have actually considered to go “pro” in. Oh well, it was fun while it lasted.

      Okay, you don’t like competitive games, but I do, not a rat kid either, i’m highly active in FFXIV, smite, dota, hearthstone, skyforge (when servers are up) Starcraft 2, heros of storm, nosgoth and others. this is just on PC, I could name a whole bunch of crap. Since I can’t play them all at the same time, I rotate every day or every couple hours. all fun to me, I don’t have that much of a short attention span LOL

      Don’t try to compare CS GO to that….filth of a genre, at least CS GO takes skill to compete.

  12. Mamson on June 2, 2015

    Idea was awesome., I was super excited till I test the game when I was invited to close beta. I wanted to like the game so I played a couple hours, but, I just couldn’t come to like it. The developers didn’t make it that appealing. some mechanics were fine but the look and feel of he moba wasn’t great at all.

  15. zxc on June 2, 2015

    Like i said, another predicted crap is down, more brainless mobas will coming to trash bin.

  16. Morgen on June 2, 2015

  17. SenpaiWillNoticeMe on June 2, 2015

    It was boring :\ When i first saw this thought it was going to be like smite , but i was wrong (;-;

  18. Sceptic on June 2, 2015

    Lets make moba with superheroes! Safe bat, right?

    • dark20xx on June 3, 2015

      It would be totally fine, if the game was able to deliver something besides super heroes….
