Official Statement: #MethodHOTS and HGC Announcement
Like so many of you in the community, we were shocked and saddened at the announcement by Blizzard Entertainment that HGC and Heroes of the Dorm were being canceled in 2019, and even more - the development team was being scaled down to what can only be assumed to be "just enough" to keep the game running.
Method was immensely proud to hold a spot in the HGC. Our players were instantly embraced by the rest of our teams and our community; we have nothing but respect and admiration for the players, content creators, and fans of Heroes.
We are troubled by the way the announcement was made; namely the impolitic choice to use social media to share such a message that effectively ended the careers of hundreds of players, content creators, casters, production crews overnight - and broke the hearts of countless fans.
We can confirm with heavy hearts we have disbanded Method HOTS, and issued termination agreements to our team members. We will do our best to support them during their transition into the next phase of their professional journeys.
Darrie, General Manager
