HanbitSoft Resurrecting Hellgate: London

Recommended Videos

Following the closure of Flagship Studios, Hellgate: London, the studio’s dark fantasy-themed online RPG was shut down in February 2009, and the servers taken offline. Intellectual property rights to the game were then acquired from previous publisher Namco Bandai by HanbitSoft Inc., a Korean game publisher best known for their distribution of Blizzard’s StarCraft in Korea.

 

HanbitSoft renamed the title Hellgate: Resurrection, announcing their plans to re-launch the game. In July 2008, they were acquired by T3 Entertainment1, who committed their internal development teams to adding content to Hellgate, including a new expansion in the form of Hellgate: Tokyo.

 

Today, HanbitSoft announced Hellgate: Resurrection will release first in China, Taiwan, and South East Asia, followed by North America, Europe, and Japan, although, no timeframe for the re-launch was specified. The game already operates in Korea under a free-to-play model.

 

1. Long-lost cousin of D3 Publisher, perhaps?
