The City of Heroes Homecoming team shared a post on their forums regarding the Titan Network/NCSoft negotiations today.
The post reads,
We know things have been really quiet from us lately, and we wanted to provide an update on what we've been up to.
Homecoming and The Titan Network are working together and are in active negotiations with NCSoft in order to turn Homecoming into a legitimate operation, and we've been making significant strides in recent weeks. It's our intention to involve the entire community in this process when the time comes - which is not quite yet, but we'll certainly be shouting from the rooftops when it is - hopefully Soon™.
Please hang tight for the time being, and keep killing those Skuls.
EDIT: To be clear, Homecoming will remain completely free to play.
