Hellgate: London Source Code Stolen?

This evening the folks over at Gamers With Jobs Press Pass gave us a heads up about an alleged security breach at the offices of Flagship Studios, the company made up of ex-Blizzard employees slaving away at their ambitious Hellgate: London game.

The site's source alleges a Chinese individual conducted the virtual break-in and is currently attempting to sell the code on a personal website

17 Years Later, Hellgate: London Makes Surprise Return With New Game From Original Developer

IGN : Remember Hellgate: London? The dark fantasy action role-playing game came out in 2007 for PC, a year before developer Flagship Studios went bankrupt. Since then, various free-to-play and online revivals have come and gone. Now, 17 years after the release of Hellgate: London, it’s back.

I remember some friends and I all bought Hellgate: London day one because it was made by some original Diablo devs. We had fun playing it, good memories.

They actually are. It'll be a VR game. Not sure what Hanbitsoft is thinking. Supposedly Hellgate is doing GREAT in Korea, but not-so-much outside of it besides a fan revive called Hellgate: 2038. I'd actually love to see Bandai and the creators of DOOM team up for another rumble against Hell's forces.

Lon3wolf2331d ago

Indeed I wish they would, I'm really not interested in VR at the moment.

ThatDudeMunkee2331d ago

You and me both, Lon3wolf. I want a full new game or a REALLY good remaster. I think in today's market, it'd actually do a lot better under the proper team.

sampsonon2331d ago

i don't want another Doom game. i want Hellgate

Mulando2331d ago

Well Hellgate London had it's moments, but .. well not for the long run.

ThatDudeMunkee2331d ago

It's still alive, haha. There's a fan revival currently going on that just entered Open Alpha. I've actually tried it out. It's actually pretty solid and their servers are definitely as good as you'd hope for a private server.

I enjoyed it. Felt like it was underrated.

sampsonon2331d ago

the atmosphere is incredible. f they remade the game with todays graphics but kept the actual look and feel of the game i would spend a ton of money on it. Engineer baby!!

It's a shame Hellgate: London did so poorly. It was an interesting game, and well worth a sequel.

irishyort2331d ago

Never heard of it. What a shame :(

ThatDudeMunkee2331d ago

You can actually play it today! The fan revival has been a solid experience for me so far (aside from getting a good disc off Ebay or Amazon).

sampsonon2331d ago

can you link me the mod download for 2038 version please?

ThatDudeMunkee2331d ago


Just a note, you will need to make an account on their site, use a disc to install, and proceed from there.
