City of Heroes No More.
I learned today that the Superhero MMO 'City of Heroes' will be shut down by November 30, 2012. This is a really sad day, since I have been playing this online game since 2004. I have made many characters and invested a lot of time playing over the years. I have also met many friends while playing this game as well. This news comes out of left field as it seemed that the game was doing well financially since it went Free-to-Play last year. The developers were releasing new content for the game. I suppose if things were not going so well, that there would have been big scaling back of new content. I hope some of the efforts to try and save the game by releasing the IP and game code to the game community will bear some fruit.
