Hellgate: London Fans Submit Petition

Posted Apr 28, 2009 by Keith Cross

Hellgate: London Fans Submit Petition

Members of the Hellgate: London community have put together a petition directed at Namco/Bandai, who own the North American and European rights to HGL, asking them to come to an agreement with HanbitSoft and bring the game back to those regions.

It all began about four years ago. A young team, peppered with the most famous guys of the ARGP business, introduced their new project Hellgate: London. Fans all over the world got more and more excited about what Flagship Studios worked on. Communities like HellgateLondon.de formed and thousands of people looked forward to play Hellgate: London.

Then in October 2007, the game was released, and a great voyage through London began. Even if Hellgate wasn’t perfect at that time, fans loved it and appreciated Flagship's hard work on improving the game. After a long wait, the Stonehenge Chronicles went online, full of new environments, new assets such as pets and a lot of new daemons. It was incredible! Patch 2.0 was supposed to be the next milestone in the history of Hellgate London. There would be even more incredible environments, more assets, skills, PvP, a bunch of fresh features and more visually compelling daemons. Everyone hoped that the Abyss-Chronicles are online as fast as possible.

However, in the summer of 2008 Flagship Studios crashed after the game finally started to grow to what it was meant to be: Something new in the WoW controlled online gaming business. The reasons for the failure are as manifold as the game itself. The asperation to work as an independent company was one of the reasons for a bad start after release. Flagship studios felt the pressure to release a game that could compete with all the features of the big MMOs. Trying to implement too many game modes caused for some of them to not function properly. Overall Hellgate is an innovative game with the most ardent community the world has ever seen. A community, that now cannot play the online mode of its favourite game!
