Heroes of Newerth Bids Farewell

08:32 PM December 14, 2021

Heroes of Newerth announced yesterday that service for the game will end next year. HoN has been around for more than a decade since its initial release date in 2010 with the rise of popularity of the MOBA genre. At one point, it was one of the most played games in computer shops here in the Philippines. 

HoN produced a number of players now prominently known in other pro scenes, most notably Johan “N0tail” Sundstein, Gustav “s4” Magnusson, and Peter “ppd” Dager, who are all The International winners.


In the announcement, the Heroes of Newerth Team thanked its players for their support and dedication. The team also provided more details on the end of service.
