    Sadly, yes.  I played from launch to the day it was shut down.  I really liked aspects of that game.  But it needed much more development, to be a really good game.  But looking at NCsofts antics that came out during the trial (which NCsoft lost), I'd never, ever do business with them.

    If I was working at NC Soft right now, I would be looking for another job (it is easier to find another job when you are in a job), but if NC Soft have brains they would sell out before they are down, and let EA buy them or something.

    If they get as far as bankruptcy then the games could be sold off, and even the IP to COH could be bought by a competent company

    I say if NC Soft goes down, all employees and the profitable games will still be OK and better off as chances are will be with a more competent company.

    people get laid off after a game is finished, this has happened quite often with other devs too.

    I'd say business as usual

    Except their revenue is going down

    Nov 13th when that post I linked to, they were in bad shape then at (169,000 KRW), now they are worse again (149,500 KRW)

    What game finshed?

    They laid off 80 employess with the closure of Paragon Studios, and now more layoffs within NC Soft themselves

    I'm not seeing anywhere that this is because of shutting down CoH, though.  

    aug 28th  guildwars2 was released sales raised their stock  back into the normal range  in sept the month they anounced coh to be closed their stock went into a downwards spiral  1+1 = 2  ??
