When Flagship Studios closed its doors, the online portion of the popular RPG, Hellgate London, was suspended indefinitely and we thought that would be the end of it.

However, HanbitSoft Inc., has announced today that the company has obtained the publishing rights for Hellgate in North America, Europe and Japan from NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc.

HanbitSoft and NAMCO BANDAI Games America, the formal owner of the publishing rights in these regions, have entered into an agreement for the game to be distributed by HanbitSoft in the future.

This means that Hellgate London is set to be revitalised and released in 2010 in North America, Europe, and Japan. Recently, HanbitSoft launched a new, upgraded version of Hellgate called Hellgate: Resurrection in Korea which includes a free-to-play model. HanbitSoft also announced that the Korean gamers are welcoming the return of the new Hellgate, with a rapidly increasing number of users.

A firm date has yet to be revealed.

If its free to play it might be worth someone giving it a go, but i read a lot of bad comments about this game.
same, i missed Hellgate because of heavy raiding but after the initial novelty wore off alot of the guys came back to WoW - i would have liked to try it though, just never did :(

I really enjoyed the original, I think I was in the minority though, showed a lot of promise
