Sad to see this. I spent many months playing this and loved it. Good luck to the devs on this one. They deserve to be given another project.
It is really sad, but can they not release the game in open source or something? Let fans setup their own servers to host the game and carry on playing?
That'd be awesome and reasonable, but no company would do that unfortunately. This is one of the reasons I don't play MMO or any online games: When I purchase a game, I expect to be able to play it whenever I want, even if it is 10 years from now.
Unfortunately these companies only see profit, and don't respect the fanbase enough to give the game to the community after so many years of devotion (and financial gain).
It is stupid that they hold onto an IP, they have no intention to put any more funds into it and they refuse to give it to anyone else to invest in.
kind of like why I hate Fox, because they have done the same thing to Firefly
Thanks for covering the story of NC Soft preparing to close City of.. down.
Would you be willing to cover and support the community's response?
