Following the all theat Flagship Studios these past two weeks, this evening they announced that they are to close the official forums for both Hellgate: London and Mythos but then later backtracked. Mythos and Hellgate players are still being left in the dark with regards to what is actually happening with the games and the game servers.There are still the legal issues between Flagship and HanbitSoft to be sorted out. Flasgship issued the following statement which is brief and to the point.On Friday, July 18th at Midnight (CST) the forums will be shutting down. We would like to thank everyone for being a part of this wonderful community and we hope to see you all again soon.In a later post, forum manager Tiggs posted that the forums will in fact not begoing down tonight but how long they will stay live is anyone’s guess.I am happy to announce that the forums will not be going down tonight.The whole Hellgate saga has left a bad taste in the mouth of many subscribers to the game, and even though Flagship Studios is still a going concern, the company now consists of a skeleton crew which includes the founders.
Should flagship resurrect themselves in the months ahead it’s unlikely gamers will be rushing out to see what they have on the cards next. The discontinuation of development, and the uncertain future of the two games, has left lots of unhappy gamers in their wake.
