During the past week, Paradox announced that it will be shutting down Magicka: Wizard Wars on July 21st.

“When the decision came to halt development on the game, we left the servers open so that our small but passionate player base could still continue to enjoy the game as it was, we hope that this has been a fun time for you all (the odd server gremlin aside)! Unfortunately though we have reached the point where we can’t economically justify to continue running the costly server infrastructure. To make things clear, these last nine months haven’t been a money-making exercise for us (for the most part server costs weren’t covered); we simply wanted to let those of you who loved the game play for as long as was possible.”

In conjunction into shutting down the game, Paradox will be disabling in-game purchases and launch any content that is still under development into the game for players’ experience whilst the game lasts for another 3 months.
