City of Heroes may be saved from shutdown

City of Heroes, City of Villains and Paragon Studios may yet escape a fateful late November shutdown.

According to an in-game message from a City of Heroes admin, “Paragon management is having discussions with NCsoft and investors”.

The message was spotted by a player and posted to the City of Heroes forum, but appears to be genuine, as community manager Andy Belford acknowledged the message and asked fans not to get too excited as “discussions” doesn’t necessarily mean anything will come of it.

But in the meantime, there’s a petition you can sign, and a whole community dedicated to saving the MMO through various means.

The influential MMO’s closure was announced late last week, much to the disappointment of fans.

Thanks, Massively.
