Profitable or Not?

Profitable or Not? - City of Heroes - MMORPG.com

The closing of City of Heroes by NCSoft was a heartbreaker for many current and former players. In an investigative piece here at MMORPG.com, we take a look at the closure and whether or not CoH was a profitable game raising speculation about why it was closed in the end. Read on and then join the conversation in the comments.

In my most recent MMOFTW show, I chose the City of Heroes closure by NCsoft as one of the year’s top MMO-related news stories. In the segment, I mentioned that CoH was not profitable, and this is why it was shut down in November. Why? Because this is what we were told by NCsoft as one of the driving reasons behind the closure of the game.  Several readers reached out to tell me this was inaccurate.  But more than that, former Paragon Studios and NCsoft employees reached out to our own Rob Lashley to tell him what they believed to be true regarding the studio’s earnings in a phone interview.
