Much like EA’s Dawngate, Turbine Studio’s DC themed MOBA, Infinite Crisis will be short-lived. The game only just launched on Steam towards the end of March but today it has been announced that the servers for the title will shut down in August and development on the game has ceased entirely.
Turbine worked on Infinite Crisis for quite some time, hosting a lengthy beta period. The testing phase ended on the 26th of March when the game landed on Steam. Turbine is also known for creating Lord of the Rings Online, which is still around and making enough money to stay afloat for now.
In the announcement of Infinite Crisis’ closure, the developer said: “This was an extremely difficult decision to make. On behalf of the entire Infinite Crisis team we want to thank all of you for your feedback, support and for joining together to create one of the best communities in gaming.”
“For those of you who spent money, please make sure to contact Customer Service at http://support.infinitecrisis.com. They will be happy to help you.”
Infinite Crisis was quite well received and people seemed to like it. However the same could be said for Dawngate, which also didn’t turn out well. It seems that it is just too hard to compete with Dota 2 and League of Legends in the MOBA market.

KitGuru Says: I played Infinite Crisis a couple of times and it was fairly enjoyable. Having the backing of DC should have helped the game out considerably as well, unfortunately, it looks like the game just wasn’t popular enough to be viable. Did any of you play Infinite Crisis at all?
