I'm aware that Brian Clayton et al are trying to convince NCsoft management to not just shut down Paragon Studios but to do something else. But I can't see them succeeding. NCsoft wasn't interested in selling Paragon Studios - they announced the shut down and then looks like they locked almost everyone out of the offices. They don't appear to have shopped the studio / title around first, opting to just kill the title. And then even if NCsoft is convinced to sell everything as is (i.e. the IP, the people, the player accounts, etc.) who is going to buy? It's a MMO that has had no revenue growth in years. The MMO market is currently full of recently tanked projects like SWOR and TSW. Investors would be wary of taking on CoH/V under such circumstances.
