Still confused on the true status of Hellgate: London
? Well, let us help confuse you a bit more. According to Korean publisher HanbitSoft
, they're interested in resurrecting
the game in the U.S. and Europe, but their hands are tied by Namco Bandai
. Of course HanbitSoft acquired the title from Flagship, who was the original developer of the game. On top of this, the game is alive and well in Korea under HanbitSoft's domain.
Maybe Kee Young Kim, CEO of HanbitSoft, can explain it better: "HanbitSoft does own the intellectual property of Hellgate: London and is interested in providing the game in the US and Europe, but is unable to do so at this time because Namco Bandai has the publishing rights for those regions."
Any way you look at it, it seems Hellgate: London
is trying hard to come back to its loyal fans.
