Not sure how this slipped our notice, but Wrath of Heroes will be shutting down permanently on March 29th. Players can no longer purchase gems for use in the cash shop nor will they be able to seek refunds, but they will be able to try out almost 18 new heroes before the shutdown at a rate of three or more a week. These were work in progress heroes at various stages of development that never made it to release.
It may come as no surprise that EA-owned Mythic Entertainment, the studio behind Wrath of Heroes, chalked the closure up to the game's inability to meet financial goals. In a FAQ post on the official Wrath of Heroes website the studio stated it will now shift its focus towards the mobile market and must "reallocate resources" in order to support their new direction.
You can read the full details including a farewell letter from the games producer, James Casey on the official site here.
