I'm grateful to the team for all of their hard work.

I am curious to see how the community is going to handle mutiple CoH games all competing for their gaming dollars.

Thank you for everything Nate.

Okay, here is my question. Is there any plans for an additional Kickstarter?

Okay. I guess I have one more question because it's unclear to me.

So "COX 1.5" would be a port of COX into the Unreal Engine. Does that mean there would be no official COX 2?

My understanding from his comment is CoX 1.5 will be in stopped at i23 and in maintenance mode with unreal engine while CoT, H&V, Valiance would be the CoX2 spiritually. That was my interpretation

With confused gratitude after a long drought would be my guess.

Thanks to all involved in this project, as well as all of the spiritual successors, for keeping the dream and hope of us returning home alive.

I am going to say this... THANK YOU TO ALL INVOLVED WITH THIS!
I'm just a humble blog talk radio host that keeps people up to date on all the happenings of the "successor" games and COH-returning related news. This IS big news. NOT the big news some people wanted but it is obviously BIG news! I wish you luck in continuing talks and will await updates regarding this!

There's a whole lot of legal issues around the user data.  IIRC, the EULA players agreed to did NOT give NCSoft the ability to transfer the data to anyone else, or at least makes it legally iffy if they were to try.  So it's best to just leave that out of the negotiations entirely.  The usual IANAL, I'm not involved in the negotiations, I didn't actually read the entire EULA for comprehension, etc.

At this point the original game is 10 years old, so if all we get is a true successor, and they have the license to use the sidekick technology, arguably the best unique feature that nobody else has come close to, in a sequel game, that's cool.

Good luck un-masked stranger.

Thanks so much.

I could cry, but I'm saving that for the "We got it!" announcement.

Downix,

Awesome news.  Questions:

* So would APR be another separate company licensing from CoH IP?

* Where does CoH2 fit into this: Is that like APR part 2 (APR being a stopgap to address Windows 9)?

* Would you end up being the president of CoH IP, APR, and MWM?

* Is the line "This could be expanded for any of them, should the desire be there" intended to indicate that a successor project could just license so aggressively that they essentially merge with APR for forming CoH2 (I'm basically thinking in terms of something like CoT blending their creations into the material from APR to create a seamless game entity)?

Downix,
Can we still have our game without the source code? and Thank you again, and for such a detailed post.

I am giddy with anticipation on how this will turn out!  Good.  Bad.  I don't care, progress is being made  :D


For my curiosity, how is everyone going to 'regulate' the multiple CoX games out there?  Multiple universes?  Crossovers?  Whatever the outcome may be, I am grateful for every game developer's hardships on their project(s) and efforts for a better tomorrow!






....and yes, I'm still in withdrawals of CoX ._.

I'm totally confused.... I have absolutely NO understanding of coding etc etc and this announcement was a lil too technical for me or something.


If everything goes as planned:


CoH as we knew it in Issue 23 will be coming back.. yes?


The whole Windows 9 thing is confusing me... are you saying that when Windows 9 hits... CoH Issue 23... won't work??


Sorry but I have read the statement 5 or 6 times and am totally not understanding what will happen if everything goes through.


Can someone dumb it down for me?

Kind of, Yeah. It means no updates to the original game, however.
