Magic: Legends, which launched its open beta on PC last March, shut down its servers on October 31 and cancel the versions announced for Steam, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Perfect World Entertainment and Cryptic Studios have announced the news “with great sadness” and promise to return the money to those who invested in purchases during the beta base on the Epic Games Store. “The servers will remain open until closing, however the Zen Shop closes immediately. At the end of this week all items can be purchased with Aether, our free in-game currency.”
The team explains that Magic: Legends did not reach the desired goal but they are proud of what they achieved. “Thanks to Wizards of the Coast we were able to bring the wide multiverse to a large audience and explore new angles in the action RPG genre. We have learned valuable lessons along the way that we will use to use future Cryptic developments,” says the official message. They also appreciate the support of the players who provided feedback during the alpha and beta phases.
