Anticipation reached peak levels but NCSoft announced the shocking news
San Francisco, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/10/2012 -- Last Friday was a dark day for both, the developers and the players of City of Heroes – an abrupt announcement from Paragon Studios was released that parent company NCSoft was closing down the studio and straightaway stopping all developments on the game. The studio plans on ending City of Heroes permanently by the last months of the year.
Glimmers of hope began to crop up soon enough. Not willing to let their beloved game go to waste without so much as a fight, many City of Heroes players began thinking and debating for means with which the video game could be saved. Several of those efforts are being spearheaded by the Titan Network, which is made up of a bunch of players who are managing the game’s knowledge and fan websites as well as the popular Paragon Wiki. Opinions vary from petitioning NCSoft to rethink their call to shut Paragon Studios, to campaigns to urge NCSoft to liquidate the studio to a willing company, to player-run servers or emulators.
Another sign of hope emerged when one of the producers of the video game, operating under the alias Alpha Wolf, passed a public statement through the game’s administrator’s chat channel. But the Community Manager Andy Belford cautioned players to not take the the statement to mean what it says, it will supply some hope that NCSoft is on the bare essentials, willing to speak regarding what is to become of the video game in the coming time of city of Heroes.
Several of the developers and producers of the video game began posting farewell messages on the official City of Heroes forums, every single one of them wanting to be resigned to a future devoid of the computer game on which all of them all been operating on right up till the instant they received the closing notice from NCSoft on Friday.
