EA Shutting Down Dawngate, Failed to Meet Expectations

Fans of MOBA game Dawngate will be disappointed to know that EA has decided to axe the title for good. The game will be shut down in the next 90 days.

Dawngate was revealed in 2013 and the game has been in open beta for the past 6 months. In a lengthy post on the game’s official website, Group General Manager Matt Bromberg revealed the disappointing news.

Dawngate was EA’s attempt to give some competition to League of Legends in the MOBA genre but the company decided to pull the plug. According to the post, the reason behind this decision was the game not progressing the way they hoped it would.

Matt Bromberg stated:

“Dawngate has been in beta for almost 18 months, including a full open beta for the past six months. Through that time, we’ve taken a lot of feedback from players and delivered lots of new features and innovations. And although the game has grown, we’re not seeing the progress we’d hoped for.”

However, Dawngate will continue to operate for the next 90 days and players who have spend money on this game during the beta, will be given full refunds.

Majority of these refunds will be processed within 10 days. Keep in mind if you don’t have your payment information on file, you will have to contact help.ea.com.

In a closing statement Bromberg stated:

“On behalf of the entire team at Waystone Games and EA, I want once again to thank all our players for being part of this journey.”

For those of you who haven’t played Dawngate so far, you have only 90 days left to know what the game is all about. If interested, the title can be downloaded from Dawngate.com.
