rep Tiggs announced last night on the official Mythos
and Hellgate London
forums that both forums will be shutting down effective midnight tonight. The message was very brief, and didn't give any specific clues as to when, if ever, the forums will be back. Tiggs simply said: "We would like to thank everyone for being a part of this wonderful community and we hope to see you all again soon."
This comes after Flagship was forced to lay off almost its entire staff.
Presently, HanbitSoft is trying to get its hands on both projects
, but both companies face legal hurdles that must be overcome before the plan can move forward. Lead Mythos
developer Travis Baldree made a forum post
earlier this week expressing his hope that the team will be able to get back together and resume work on its game. We hope so too!
