HanbitSoft has acquired worldwide publishing rights Hellgate: London, and plans to relaunch the action/RPG in China, Taiwan, and South East Asia, followed by the game's return to North America, Europe, and Japan. Says Kee-Young Kim, CEO of HanbitSoft: "Hellgate: Resurrection is heading towards success in Korea such that we decided to push ahead with launching the game overseas next year. We will do our best to get the game to the fans as soon as possible." Hellgate London closed early last year following the closure of Flagship Studios, and HanbitSoft has repeatedly indicated interest in returning the game to the west, but NAMCO BANDAI owned the game's European and North American rights until now. "We are pleased to participate in the revitalization of Hellgate through this agreement and are deeply gratified to allow Hanbitsoft to take the lead on this franchise and bring this game to the people who seek it," says Zack Karlsson, senior director of business development at NAMCO BANDAI Games America.
