Things are not well at Hellgate: London
developer Flagship Studios according to Guy Somberg, an audio and gameplay programmer at the fledgling studio. Somberg wrote on his personal blog
a month ago – which was recently dug up by GI.biz
– that people are leaving the company "in droves" following the poor sales and negative feedback of its post-apocalyptic jaunt.
Somberg does have some hope for the future (wait, isn't London occupied by demons in 2038?), saying that the game is doing well in Korea
and has yet to start in China. He concludes that he likes the job, but that all the artists and programmers leaving the company is taking a toll on the future of Hellgate: London
and Flagship as a studio. Well, we're hearing good things about Mythos
