Paradox Interactive has just revealed that Magicka: Wizard Wars is going to shut down on July 21, 2016. This is the culmination of the decision to halt development on the game about nine months ago, and so this crazy, enjoyable free-to-play PvP game is on its last days.
The reason is obviously connected to not making enough money to keep the servers running: “We have reached the point where we can’t economically justify to continue running the costly server infrastructure. To make things clear, these last 9 months haven’t been a money-making exercise for us […]”
Magicka: Wizard Wars was just one more victim on a seemingly endless run of MOBAs shutting down, after Infinite Crisis, Dead Island: Epidemic or Dawngate, to name just a few.
