End Of The Line: Western Lineage To Close


NCSoft have reported that they are shutting down that most Korean of RPGs, Lineage, two months from now in North American and Europe. They had this to say about the closure period: "As of today, no new accounts can be created. We will no longer charge anyone whose account is set to recurring billing, and Time Cards can no longer be used to add additional game time. We have reactivated all existing accounts in good standing, and everyone can play for free* for the remaining time that the servers are open." There's also going to be refunds for any unused game time.

The MMO first appeared in Korea in 1998, and launched in the West in 2001. I never played it, and now I never will.
