Heroes of Newerth has shut down after 12 years
Enduring free-to-play MOBA Heroes of Newerth has officially been shut down after over a decade.
Developer Frostburn Studios announced the closure last year, and explained the title would officially be laid to rest on June 20, 2022.
That day has finally arrived, marking the end of an era that began over 12 years ago when Heroes of Newerth launched in May 2010.
“Heroes of Newerth (HoN) has been in service for a long time. We would like to extend our sincere thanks to everyone who has been on this journey, created special memories together with us, moved HoN forward, and created a lot of unforgettable stories for HoN, as well as making Heroes of Newerth become one of the most popular MOBA games in history,” wrote Frostburn last year.
“We, the Heroes of Newerth Team, would like to thank our players for all the support we’ve been receiving all this time.”
As part of the gradual shutdown, players were prevented from purchasing Gold Coins or creating new accounts from December 31, 2021. As of today, Heroes of Newerth’s services will be shuttered before other “official communication platforms” are slowly switched off.
