The Hellgate: London
IP saga continues. While we had some dire news that the servers will go dark
at the end of January, we also know that development for the title
is still being done in Redbana's California office
... just not for which region. The latest word we've received on this seems
to indicate the continuity of Hellgate: London
, but to date this is only confirmed for service in Asia -- so we cannot (yet) offer a definitive, "Yes, HG:L will continue for North America and EU."
That being said, Gamasutra has picked up on company blog posts
by HanbitSoft's Global PR Manager, Janelle. One is a definitive announcement that HanbitSoft owns both the Hellgate: London and Mythos IP
, while the other is more telling.
Janelle republished an email
sent from Hellgate: London's
Product Manager about the future of the title.The message in its entirety, as shown on the Game Espresso site for HanbitSoft
, is reprinted below the cut.
