Always hope......

.....and perhaps plan a commando raid on their HQ and "creatively acquire"  all digital and hard copies of the game and any legacy hardware that was used to run it.

You might want to kidnap the dev team and knock over a few banks.  Devs to put the game back up and the money from the banks to pay for the data center and networks needed to make it all work.

I think it better to wait on one of the successors.

One step at a time. Have to have the game first. 

As to Devs, I suspect it wouldn't take much arm twisting for devs like Synapse, BAB and Positron to lend a hand.

As to the money.....yeah that would be an obstacle.

That determines whether or not you should be wearing a kilt, of course.

Wait, what am I saying? The answer to whether you should wear a kilt is always yes.

The Justice League wears theirs outside.

Nobody in DC knows about proper undergarments.

The software is probably too old.  Yeah I'm sure the game client runs even on windows 10, but I thinking more the server side code.  It would likely need some rewriting for all the security holes it has that need closing or the libraries it used got patches that are incompatible with the code.  Programming isn't my strong suit even though I went to college to learn to program computers.  I went into system administration instead.

I'd almost say it would be easier to get a successor that looks like it running than to try and get the actual server code working.

Those are trunks, dammit.  Not underwear. 

You wear them if you don't want your junk plainly visible through your Lulu Lemon Super Hero outfit that has to be tight enough to wear under other clothing.

Also early 20th Century bodybuilders/strong men wore outfits like that to emulate the look of being half naked without actually showing a lot of skin, but that's neither here nor there.
One of things i miss most is my whimsically named PB, general incompetence. With his battlecry of "I know what I'm doing!" he only achieved 30 levels of making villains look bad before the shutdown.

So did late 19th century-early 20th century male ballet dancers.  Nijinsky caused a scandal when he went without them.

That's just silly.  Trunks was neither of their sidekicks.

Beware the mighty faceplant!

All this talk of (under)pants brings this to mind:

Actually, this might be more fitting to the discussion:

I think it would work better than, supervillains would always be trying to look up because they are uncomfortable from the outlined junk - making them vulnerable.

It is old enough that these things would ironically probably not be a problem.

No.  I've had a crappy two months and I want to play a game where I get to be a superhero, defeating supervillains and eldrich abominations, and not just game after game of playing as Prancy McBowstring, Elvish Ranger, who dies if he dares face the might of two squirrels at the same time.

Sorry you've had a crappy time of it; same here, pal. Ironically, I'd be surprised if nobody ever made a character in City of Heroes named Prancy McBowstring. Well, maybe not ironically, as it would probably have been a defender. Of course there were no squirrel infestations around Paragon City....
