City of Heroes : The Phoenix Project
It has been some time since NCSoft announced the closure of Paragon Studios and City of Heroes and despite the pleas of thousands, there didn’t appear to be any hope left for fans. The closing of any MMORPG game is a sad day for fans but City of Heroes was a little different. It wasn’t met with the usual hostility and aggression, instead players acknowledged what made the game so unique, so special.
Two fans created highly emotional tribute videos that really helped to summarize the effect the game has had on its community.
Now on to happier days. A group of developers that previously worked on City of Heroes have come together to form a new development studio with the hopes of building a spiritual successor to the popular superhero MMO game. They have announced that a Kickstarter will be released to help fund the game so City of Heroes fans finally have something to cling on to. You can visit the official website here.
