Namco Bandai has announced that Flagship Studios' Hellgate: London will have its servers closed in Feburary of 2009. The game was met with lukewarm reviews when it launched about a year ago, and its fan base has been dwindling ever since. Most of the problems with the game were never addressed, and when Flagship Studios closed a few months back it was assumed that Hellgate would close soon after. For the next few months, fans can enjoy free online play and continued support for the title, but I wouldn’t expect much in ways of content between now and the inevitable closing.
I've always been interested in the game, but never made the plunge and tried it out. Has anyone given it a try? I'd like to know if there are enough fans to justify getting upset about another MMO closing.
