Robot Entertainment is cutting operations for three of its live games over financial necessity.

The studio announced via blog post that Orcs Must Die! Unchained will be shut down alongside Hero Academy 1 and 2, as it was no longer financially viable to keep the games live.

"No longer sustainable"

"Making and supporting a game is a long and challenging journey,” said CEO Patrick Hudson. “We know this decision affects our players as much as it does us.”

"We've kept these games operating at a financial loss for many months. Unfortunately, it's no longer sustainable for us to do so. We must shift our focus to future games and make our investments there."
