For the past few years, Marvel: Avengers Alliance titles have been successful on Facebook and other platforms.
Unfortunately, the same can’t be said for today. Today, Disney announced the official shutdown of Marvel: Avengers Alliance and its sequel on all existing platforms. This means that the games will no longer be available on the App Store, Google Play, Amazon Appstore, Windows Phone Store, and of course, Facebook.
Right now, it is still possible to play them if you have downloaded them already. However, starting September 30, 2016, they will be completely off the grid.
“Beginning today, we are no longer accepting new purchases or downloads, but the games will be available to play until September 30, 2016,” said Disney. “We greatly appreciate the passion and support of all our players. This was a difficult decision, but we plan to focus our efforts on new games for our fans and community,” added the company.
“Thank you for your playing.“
Following the initial announcement, a Disney Spokesperson reached out to GameSpot in order to provide a little more information.
“For more than four years, Marvel: Avengers Alliance has been one of DCPI’s most successful games created for Facebook, and our hope was to continue the series with Marvel: Avengers Alliance 2, but the title has not met our performance expectations. As a result, we have decided to focus our efforts on new game experiences.”
A few months ago, Disney also shut down the entire Infinity series. This was paired with some layoffs as well.
Other Marvel titles have not been affected by this recent shut down.
