Everyone thought the game was flourishing, so it was a shock to hear the news, and such brusque news too - "'In a realignment of company focus and publishing support, NCsoft has made the decision to close Paragon Studios. Effective immediately, all development on City of Heroes will cease…"

It is undoubtedly related to the latest NCSoft losses for the second quarter, but as to why you punish a successful niche product to counteract the losses from Aion is beyond me.
