Kabam cans original IP Legacy of Zeus after seven months of soft launch

Kabam has canned its mythological RPG Legacy of Zeus after seven months in soft launch.

The game was originally launched in Denmark and Sweden on June 18th 2016. It received nine updates up to December 19th and was eventually pulled from app stores on January 19th 2017.

Legacy of Zeus was an original IP, setting it apart from Kabam's stable of licensed products. It was turn-based RPG with a base-building element, a vast departure from the studio's most successful title Marvel: Contest of Champions.

Selling up

It is not the only Kabam game to close recently. It's licensed racing title, Fast & Furious: Legacy, appears to have been pulled from app stores on November 20th 2016.

The game's closure may have something to do with Kabam's sale of its Vancouver studio to Netmarble. The company is looking to sell off the remainder of its studios following the completion of that deal.

Kabam had another game in soft-launch called Transformers: Forged to Fight, a 3D fighting game that appears to share some similarities to Contest of Champions. This was also acquired by Netmarble during the sale of its Vancouver studio, however.
