Today, Robot Entertainment announced the closure of three of its current games -- most notably Orcs Must Die! Unchained. The games, which also include Hero Academy and Hero Academy 2, will cease operations on Monday, April 8, 2019 at 10:00 AM Central time.

In the closure announcement, the company's CEO was very open about why the closure was happening. According to the post, the games have been operating at a financial loss for months and just can't be sustained any more.

Of course, this is a bummer for those who do play the games, so the devs are providing players with a bit of a good-bye present. Starting today, anyone who logs into Orcs Must Die! Unchained and Hero Academy 2 will be given free currencies to use in games until the closure date.

Good games. Why people will only play shitty games and non hyped good games get shut down?

Orcs Must Die was a success and Hero Academy 2 was very of the few quality mobile games.
