Hellgate: London Shutting Down in February 2009

Namco Bandai, the North American publisher for the now-defunct Flagship Studios' Hellgate: London (PC), has announced that it will support the game's servers through January 31, 2009, after which they will be shut down.


Until the February shutdown, online multiplayer for the action-RPG will continue to be free as a "further gesture of support" from Namco Bandai.

Namco Bandai saved the game's servers back in July as the failure of the once-anticipated Hellgate predicated the collapse of Flagship. Much of the studio's staff has gone on to form Runic Games in order to continue making action RPGs.
