Hellgate: London, the seemingly defunct RPG from Flagship Studios is bound to make a return, and not only in China and other Asian countries, but also in Europe and US.

HanbitSoft bought the Asian rights to the game, taking over development, and now has acquired the worldwide rights from original publisher Namco Bandai. It seems that they have high hopes for Hellgate: Resurrection (a revamped version with new content, no level cap and free-to-play or subscription options) and they're already working on an expansion, Hellgate: Tokyo, with a March 2010 release date.

The game will release in China, Taiwan and South East Asia first, with North America, Europe and Japan to follow during 2011.
