Raise your hand if you’re surprised that the latest version of Hellgate is closing down. OK, smartasses in the back row, put ’em down, because absolutely no one is shocked that Hellgate Global failed to make money.
It’s kind of old news at this point, too, since the closure post on the T3Fun forums is dated October 20th, 2015. But hey, it was new to me so I figured there might be a couple of you who care. The game’s cash shop has already gone dark, while the service itself will take a final bow on December 31st, 2015.
The original Hellgate: London ARPG released way back in 2007(!), and since then the property has changed company hands, continents, and business models numerous times in an effort to stave off the inevitable.
