According to new job posting-related information, Asian publisher T3 Entertainment is setting up a San Francisco development studio to carry on work on Hellgate: London and Mythos, following developer Flagship's recent layoffs. The postings, which have appeared on multiple sites including DICE.com and Gamasutra, reveal: "T3 Entertainment is searching for creative minds to passionately continue development of Hellgate: London and Mythos, along with other new games, which are being published by HanbitSoft Inc." According to the call for programmers: "A development studio has been established in San Francisco, CA, with hopes of gathering those who wish to join us in starting a new chapter of history in the game industry." T3 Entertainment, the Korean-headquartered creator of popular Asian online music game Audition, recently acquired a controlling stake in HanbitSoft, Hellgate's Asian publisher and a company that has claimed rights in the fallout of Flagship's layoffs. In particular, HanbitSoft's U.S. lawyers previously revealed that the company was looking to continue work on Hellgate in association with Flagship lender and potential Hellgate IP holder Comerica. HanbitSoft also claimed that the Korean company had been pledged the Mythos intellectual property as collateral for a loan, potentially making the continuation of both properties under T3 Entertainment possible. In early July, Hellgate/Mythos developer Flagship itself saw significant layoffs, and the vast majority of its developers are no longer working with the company. It is unclear whether the San Francisco studio will include core Flagship staff members such as Bill Roper and Max Schaefer, or whether it is a wholly independent entity with no former Flagship staff. Gamasutra has contacted HanbitSoft PR representatives for more information.
