The title of the company epic Games Who was supposed to compete in Overwatch will be eliminated for the sake of investing increased resources in the title that competes with the masthead, PUBG
In 2016 launched Paragon Fanfare - the free distributor and developer creation epic Games, Which most of us are familiar with thanks to the Unreal Tournament series, which largely defined a decade of online action titles to compete with the popularity of titles such as Overwatch, Dota 2 and League of Legends.
The visual style was less ornate than that of the main competitors and hopes were high, especially with the beta being open to everyone in February last year - but that happened to the grief of the creators at the same time as the title that would define the entire 2017 year, Playerunknown's Battlegrounds.
The game that introduced to the world the concept of Battle Royale quickly became the most popular in all Steam, And brought the epic Games Offering a free mode similar to its title after Fortnite - and it quickly became an impressive success with over 30 million subscribers, which in turn pushed Paragon far back in its relevance.
The continued success of Fortnite's Battle Royale mode has made Paragon dwindle and become less popular - pending official announcement, now that the title failed to live up to its high expectations and shut down permanently in 26 in April, with those acquiring versions Its premium paid on PCs or on the consolePlaystation 4 will be able to claim a credit for their investment as a result.
Paragon can certainly be described as a victim of the unprecedented popularity enjoyed by PUBG and its counterparts, and it is unlikely to be the last - with more and more titles and companies seeking to acquire on the success of the young competitive genre and abandon the MOBA world that was the hottest trend in the half The last decade. Unfortunate or rather gratifying? We would love to hear your comments.
