Yesterday morning, HeroCrate posted the following tweet:
Follow the link to the HeroCrate website, and a farewell letter appears. The brothers behind the service cite in the letter “tend(ing) to pressing family matters”as the reason to the unexpected and abrupt shutdown.
HeroCrate seemed to be a sucessful venture, which spawned another box known as VillainCrate. It is that success that makes this move unexpected.
Pro-rated refunds are promised in the letter to all current subscribers with months remaining.
HeroCrate is currently only responding to inquiries from current subscribers.
We will be removing the links to their services in accordance to the shutdown.
