City of Heroes celebrates fourth birthday

NCsoft's City of Heroes is now four years old, and lead designer Matt Miller is having a hard time coming to terms with he MMO's longevity.

"I am pleased beyond all belief that this game continues to prosper four years into its life," he said in a statement. "Our community is stronger than ever, the game as a whole is stronger than it ever has been, and the future for the game, as well as the franchise is extremely bright."

Miller added: "In the end I just want to send out a thanks to all of the players of City of Heroes and City of Villains. Everyone, from the veterans who have been with this game since it launched (and even earlier for some beta testers!) to the users who just subscribed last week, have made this the most fun game to work on in my seventeen years in the industry. I look forward to reviewing our accomplishments this time next year when we celebrate our 5th anniversary!"
