City of Heroes/Villains cannot be saved, says publisher

City of Villains (The Pinky Promise)

As you may have heard, City of Heroes/Villains is shutting down at the end of November. The announcement was greeted with many a desperate plea of denial, the community even managing to accrue over 20,000 signatures on a petition begging for its reversal.

The battle for a beloved video game was hard fought, but unfortunately, City of Heroes/Villains publishers NCSoft have stepped forward to tell you, ‘Alas, it cannot be saved’.

“We wanted to let you know that your voices have been heard and your concerns have been taken into serious consideration. We appreciate the overwhelmingly constructive and positive messages in the emails, notes, and packages you’ve sent in support of the game,” the publishers said in a statement over at their home page. “It has not been an easy decision for us to close Paragon Studios and prepare to shut down City of Heroes. We’ve exhausted all options including the selling of the studio and the rights to the City of Heroes intellectual property, but in the end, efforts to do so were not successful. City of Heroes has a special place in all of our hearts, and we want to ensure its reputation and the memories we share for the game end on a high note.”

So there you have it, sports racers. End game events will be running until the game shuts down on November 30, although character creation has ended so if you haven’t already played, unfortunately you’ve missed the boat on this great MMO.
