It has only been a few days since NCSoft rather abruptly let us know that City of Heroes?would be no longer. ?Basically although it was a difficult decision, they had exhausted all options that would have kept the popular free to play MMORPG running. ?Since that announcement fans have been busy organizing in-game events, online petitions and more. Sadly,?NCSoft says?that, while they've heard players' voices, there are currently no plans to change the decision. ?Here is the note from NCSoft.
City of Heroes??Players and Fans,
We wanted to let you know that your voices have been heard and your concerns have been taken into serious consideration. We appreciate the overwhelmingly constructive and positive messages in the emails, notes, and packages you've sent in support of the game. It has not been an easy decision for us to close Paragon Studios? and prepare to shut down?City of Heroes. We've exhausted all options including the selling of the studio and the rights to the?City of Heroes?intellectual property, but in the end, efforts to do so were not successful.?City of Heroes?has a special place in all of our hearts, and we want to ensure its reputation and the memories we share for the game end on a high note.
Once again, we will be holding events throughout the process of preparing for the game's end, and we encourage players and fans of the franchise to join forces and enjoy their time in a game that we've enjoyed supporting for more than eight years.
