Hellgate: London Saved?

HellForge, a Blizzard-centric blog, reports the possibility that Hellgate: London may continue on in some form, even though NAMCO BANDAI has announced January 31, 2009 as the last day of service for the action/RPG. They point to an older post on Game Espresso, a blog dedicated to HanbitSoft, that reports: "But the good news is that Hellgate will go on with the new crew. HanbitSoft announced that T3 Entertainment recruited some of the best developers from Flagship Studios, Blizzard and formed a team with developers of their own. They will be carrying on where the last crew left off. Hellgate also decided to go partly FREE in Korea. Don't be too excited. It's not ALL FREE." This lead them to a post on the Korean Hellgate London website, which conjures up an error at this point (we can't figure that out, our Korean is rusty), but they have posted an image of the update, which has a message in English from HanbitSoft and Redbana USA. This leads to speculation that the game may have a future beyond next January for western audiences. The conclusion of this post reads: "More information is forthcoming, in the meantime, stay alert: the Hellgate will soon re-open, and your valor will be needed once again." Thanks N4G.
