City of Heroes was put to bed in November last year, and developer Paragon Studios were laid off. However, players of the game have come together for their love of the concept and have formed an independent studio. Their first title is The Phoenix Project, a spiritual successor to City of Heroes.

City of Heroes, the first superhero MMO which launched in 2004, is no more, as NCSoft shut the game servers down last night at 11.59pm PST. Players held a final Unity Rally on all servers at City Hall as a last goodbye until the lights went out over Paragon City. NCSoft announced in August the MMO would be shuttered along with Paragon Studios due to a “realignment of company focus and publishing support.” Surely the game’s players gave CoH a send off worthy of a superhero last night. Thanks, TenTonHammer.
