TLM Games is “taking the next action towards a much more interesting future” by shutting down its 7-year-old massively multiplayer online game.
Heroes & Generals, developed by TLM Games, has officially ended development. The free-to-play MMO set in WWII shut down on May 25, nearly a month after its creator said the game would be coming to an end.
TLM reported that “over 22 million gamers signed up,” which was “beyond all our wildest dreams” for the video game. We really appreciate all of the support and enthusiasm.

In 2022, Reto-Moto filed for bankruptcy and, before closing, offered their one and only video game to TLM Partners, a video game developer. The support studio has previously worked on games likeGotham Knights and the upcomingImmortals of Aveum, and it has been managingHeroes & & Generalssince 2015.
According to TLM’s official statement, the game’s cancellation is “the next action towards and much more interesting future.” Heroes & Generals 2: The Next War is set in that era.Unreal Engine will be used to re-create the original game’s gameplay in the sequel.
This past February, a Kickstarter campaign was launched for Heroes & Generals 2. It appears that the funding goal was not met, as a sequel to the game was not produced and the original game has been discontinued, leaving TLM without a return on its investment in the software it purchased.
