While we are not happy about the situation, as an independent developer we simply do not have the resources to pay the massive costs of new servers along with redeveloping a seven-year-old game.

I'm sure your fan-community would be quite willing to help you out with this problem if you, say, open up the source code to them. Doesn't even have to be for the full game; just enough that they can re-work the networking code. They'll build it and you can offer it as a free patch on your website. Practically free and great advertising for you (e.g., "see how we value our customers?")

This was my first thought. Although the devs might not have the rights to do that if the publishers footed the bill.
