Gazillion, the developers behind Marvel Heroes, has closed a day before Thanksgiving and almost all employees have been terminated.
Firstly in an anonymous tip to Massively OP, then corroborated via former Gazillion employee Andrew Hair, the development team has been let go with immediate effect as of the 22nd of November.
In addition to this, Marvel Heroes, which was believed to be closing at the end of the year, will instead be switched off on the 24th of November; this Friday.
It also appears that purchasers of Marvel Heroes will not receive refunds, and staff are not receiving severance:
I know a lot of people are upset and wanting refunds for their purchases in @MarvelHeroes, but please keep in mind the developers were not paid out PTO, severance, and our medical insurance is ending in 8 days.
