Marvel: Avengers Alliance - Dead but Still Signing Up Players

Superheroes bow out at PlayDom

Posted by
You've got a huge chunk of Marvel superheroic IP range in your clutches having signed a great deal. There is no way you can fail... or is there?

Playdom is currently asking this question. Here's the initial spiel for Marvel: Avengers Alliance. "Players are recruited as an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D., the secret espionage and peace-keeping organization of the Marvel Universe, to assemble and lead teams of superheroes with a mission to keep New York City safe from the clutches of villains." Hold on, did someone say "Agent" and "S.H.I.E.L.D."? Let's see what happened.

It's shutting down. Product-Reviews states, "The nightmare moment has just arrived for Avengers Alliance players on Playdom. Those who play on the version have just been given a message that Marvelís Avenger Alliance is shutting down, with mass anger inevitably starting to run its course."

In fact, "Avengers Alliance is shutting down on April 20, 2014."

So why on earth is the sign-up page still live?
