The success of Fortnite has spelled doom for another Epic game.

The studio announced over the weekend that free-to-play MOBA Paragon will be closed down on April 26.

"It’s with heavy hearts we’ve decided to close down Paragon," the company said.

"We truly appreciate everything you’ve put into Paragon. We received many passionate ideas for where to take the game; the outpouring of thoughtful suggestions is another testament to this incredible community.

"After careful consideration, and many difficult internal debates, we feel there isn’t a clear path for us to grow Paragon into a MOBA that retains enough players to be sustainable," it added.

"We didn’t execute well enough to deliver on the promise of Paragon. We have failed you -- despite the team’s incredibly hard work -- and we’re sorry."

Paragon players can request full refunds for any purchases made in the game.

Earlier this month, Epic admitted it that Paragon's development had been held up in part by the enormous success of Fortnite's hugely popular Battle Royale mode.
