The end of the action role-playing game Magic: Legends is still in the beta phase. The development studio Cryptic Studios has announced that the servers will close on October 31, 2021. At least the players get their money back.
It was not until March of this year that the open beta of the action role-playing game Magic: Legends was launched, which was to usher in a new phase of the title, which is often referred to as the Diablo clone. But the initial euphoria is now completely gone, because the developers recently announced the final end – and that even before the actual end of the beta.
As the team from Cryptic Studios explained on the official website, it could not achieve the goals it had set itself and is therefore forced to finally pull the plug in a few months. Players can let off steam in Magic: Legends until October 31, 2021 – after that it’s over.
“Our vision of Magic: Legends missed the mark, but we’re proud of what we’ve achieved. Thanks to Wizards of the Coast, we were able to bring the extensive multiverse of Magic: The Gathering to a wide audience and try out new perspectives in the established genre of action role-playing games. We have learned some valuable lessons, and we will use them to improve Cryptic’s future development efforts.”
If you have already purchased something from the Magic: Legends store, you will receive a full refund of your costs. This should be fully completed within the next four weeks. The money will be credited to the payment method you chose for your transactions. Due to the decision to discontinue the project, Magic: Legends will no longer appear as planned for the PlayStation and Xbox – the Steam release is also off the table.
