In a post found on the development blog of Transformers Universe, the developers at Jagex have announced that the popular Transformers-themed MOBA will be shutting down at the end of January 2015. According to the post both the developer and Hasbro, the creators of the Transformers franchise, are carefully considering plans for 2015 and beyond.
Also announced in the post: all players who have purchased digital items related to the game will be given a refund within the next thirty days following the announcement, as featured in the statement below:
“The shutdown period will begin from today. As part of the winding down we will be refunding all those that have purchased a Founders Pack, as well as anyone that has purchased relic bundles and starter packs. These refunds should be all processed in the next 30 days. In addition we will be closing the ability for new players to make accounts, those of you that already have accounts will continue to be able to use them until the closure date.
If you haven’t received a refund after 16th January 2015 and believe you should have, then please contact the Jagex customer services team (firstname.lastname@example.org). We will also be pushing an update live today that will switch off the ability for players to buy any more relic packs, or starter bundles.”
The blog closes by stating that the Jagex team will be available on the Transformers Universe forum until the close of the game to answer any questions that players may have. For more gaming news and reviews, make sure to follow us online @APGNation!
