[ Game -> Update ] - More info on Company: NCsoft | More info on Company: NetDevil | More info on Game: Auto Assault

Warcry interviewed NetDevil CEO Scott Brown about the fate of their post-apoc MMORPG facing the chopping block. For those that are too lazy to scroll down an article, the games community has been pushing for NetDevil to continue the game by buying the IP back from the publisher.

"We talked about it and sort of left it where it is," Brown told WarCry in a phone interview late Thursday. "We just couldn't come to an agreement."

NCSoft owns the intellectual property that is Auto Assault. This means they own the name, the story, the idea, the art and anything that directly relates to the game. The code-base and engine that power the game remain the property of NetDevil.

"We are certainly looking at other ways we can use what we do own," Brown added.

This effectivly only leaves another developer to buy the IP from publisher NCsoft, or for them to cave to the community pressure, to allow the game to remain.

Tell them to stop crying and pay $30 a month or watch it go down in flames. That's life. Shit happens and you die.
