If you've been wondering just exactly what happened with Flagship Studios
over the past year or so, then you should really give a listen to the thoughts of Bill Roper
, founder of Flagship. The poor guy pretty much spills his guts to 1up.com's Jeff Green about everything that happened and is happening with the people and projects from Flagship. It's a surprisingly lengthy interview, clocking in at eight pages. It's totally worth the read if you want a gritty insight into just how much went into not only Hellgate: London
, but the team that put those titles together.
It's not often that we get such a wide and deep look into a developer. We're counting ourselves lucky that Bill seems to be such a open and forthcoming guy, otherwise we might have never known anything beyond rumors and speculation
. If everyone previously involved with Flagship lands on their feet, it will be in no small part due to Bill Roper's efforts.
