Hellgate End Date

The Hellgate: London Website has Namco Bandai's announcement that January 31, 2009 will be the last day of online server support for Hellgate: London, the announcement coming less than a year after the game launched and scant months after the demise of developer Flagship Studios (thanks nin). Here's the announcement, which emphasizes the positive; the remaining life of the game is being supported for free:

Santa Clara, Calif., (October 24, 2008) - NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc., today announced that they will continue to support customers of PC game Hellgate™: London with online server support and play through January 31, 2009 despite the closure of Flagship Studios. In a further gesture of support, Namco Bandai Games will provide this server support free of charge to all fans and players of the game up until the shut down date.

NAMCO BANDAI Games appreciate the enthusiasm of all the Hellgate: London players and looks forward to providing them with future entertainment products.

For questions regarding the shut down or additional information about Hellgate: London, please visit the game’s official website at www.hellgatelondon.com.

I wonder if they'll take it off the shelf. I saw quite a few copies still on sale at Best Buy just yesterday. At the very least they ought to put a sticker on it pointing out that the features listed on the box no longer apply.
