Long-Running MOBA Heroes of Newerth Closing Down in 2022

Frostburn Studios revealed this week that Heroes of Newerth will shut down on June 20, 2022. The long-running MOBA has been in players’ hands for more than a decade, and it had received numerous patches during the past few months, so this news might come as a bit of a surprise to some.

The developers shared a letter and a F.A.Q. on Facebook, both of which we’ve reproduced below:

The Frostburn Studios team plans to give the game a last hurrah of sorts, and as such, they are planning on a number of ingame events designed to let players enjoy the time they have left with the game as much as they can, with a permanent increase in Silver Coin gains and Plinko Drop rates, as well as Farewell Events running from December 20th to February 19, 2022. The developers are also putting a number of items that were originally exclusive to the premium shop in the ingame currency market so that pretty much everyone can enjoy them.

Service schedule:

December 13, 2021- Gold Coins will no longer be purchasable at 9am Eastern Time (EST, GMT -5).

December 31, 2021- New accounts can no longer be created.

June 20, 2022- Close down Heroes of Newerth’s services, and gradually close down other official communication platforms for Heroes of Newerth over time.
