Unfortunately, after Paragon announced the closing of their servers, another Free-to-play game is saying goodbye to is audience base. Motiga made the announcement yesterday that come this July, the servers for Gigantic will be shutting down.

There is still time for you to play, unfortunately, its not enough. For those that don’t know much about this gorgeously artistic game, Gigantic is a third-person strategic shooter. The action is fast and the characters are fun and incredible to play with. Your team works together to take down the other side’s gigantic monster.

Below is the official statement made on the game’s website, and it’s it kind of a heart-breaking read.

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the January Update is the final content update for Gigantic, and the game servers will be discontinued on July 31, 2018. The journey over these last few years was met with outstanding support from our players and we are all very proud of the incredible experience Gigantic is today. The team wants to give a big shout out to our awesome community – both those who have been with us since the beginning as well as those who just picked up the game recently. We want to extend our sincere gratitude to everyone who gave Gigantic a chance.

Discontinuing Gigantic was not an easy decision. The game is a unique and exciting experience that captured many hearts and minds. Unfortunately, it did not resonate with as many players as we’d hoped. Over the last several months, the teams at Motiga and Perfect World looked into viable options to sustain Gigantic. However, the current state of the game has restricted options for further progress and relevant content updates, and delivering basic features while also fixing long-standing issues was more complicated than expected. Despite our best efforts, we were unable to find an impactful solution that would help Gigantic break through in a crowded market.

Gigantic remains a labor of love to the Motiga and Perfect World teams who worked on the game. It pains us to let it go, and we cannot thank everyone enough who saw something special in Gigantic and its vision. We hope you continue to enjoy Gigantic until July 31st while the official servers remain online.

One thing that is great, while the time lasts, is that Motiga is letting fans play with all the heroes for free. They have disabled all of the purchasing of Rubies and Hero Packs. It even includes their newest hero, T-Mat. In-game Currency will still be rewarded and any Crowns or Rubies gained by an account will “remain available to purchase Shop items at discounted prices.” If you are still interested in playing you can always read more of what the latest update was in the January Update Notes. So get in while you can and take down those gigantic monsters!

“One last GIGANTIC thank you to our amazing community, and while the sails are up, we’ll see you on the airship!”
