More info on Game: Auto Assault

One of the few (only?) post-apoc MMORPG's on the market was recently announced as getting canceled at the end of August by publisher NC Soft.

Today NCsoft is announcing that it will be closing down service for Auto Assault at the end of the summer. The service will close at midnight on August 31, 2007. As of today, any player currently in the service with an active billed account will not be billed again. If players have previously purchased time via multi-month billing or time cards that extends their service past July 31, NCsoft will reconcile these accounts appropriately.

Despite this, members of the community have rallied to try and keep the game afloat by petitioning both NC Soft to either keep the game going, or sell the IP back to the games developers Net Devil, or any other party. A second petition is also underway to get Net Devil to put money forward to try and reclaim the rights to the game.

For those that wish to lend their support to keeping alive a MMORPG that doesn't have elves, swords and magic, the petitions can be found below.
