Flagship Studios, the developer behind EA's Hellgate: London has closed and made all staff redundant, it emerged on Saturday according to Voodoo Extreme.

There's currently no news on how this will affect subscribers of Hellgate: London. Nobody has formally taken responsibility of the game and the rights have fallen to US money firm Comerica, according to Eurogamer. There is currently no option to unsubscribe from the game either.

Flagship's other game, Mythos, is to be handled by Korean company HanbitSoft, which reportedly aims to handle the MMO internally.

Hellgate London was a POS. Mythos looked promising though.

EA will do what they did with Earth and Beyond, say they stand behind the game, then cancel it a month or two later.
