Magic: Legends is shutting down in October
Cryptic Studios has announced that it will be shutting down its action RPG Magic: Legends on October 31st, 2021.
The game, which is currently available on PC through Arc and the Epic Games Store in open beta will not get an official launch and all purchases will be refunded. The planned PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of the game have also been cancelled.
“Our vision for Magic: Legends missed the mark, but we are proud of what we achieved,” the developer wrote. “Thanks to Wizards of the Coast, we got to bring the expansive Magic: The Gathering Multiverse to a wide audience and explore new angles within the established ARPG genre. We learned several valuable lessons along the way, and we will use them to improve Cryptic’s future development efforts.”
The servers will remain open until October 31st, but the Zen Shop is now closed. Cryptic plans to make all items purchasable through Aether later this week.
As for refunds, purchases made through Arc Games using a credit card will be refunded to the card used within approximately four weeks, while Arc purchases with a prepaid card will be refunded as Arc credit in approximately four weeks. Finally, purchases made through the Epic Games Store will be refunded to the payment type used by July 14th. More information can be found here.
Magic: Legends is available now in open beta on PC.
