In a recent address to the community of Lineage in North America, NCSoft announced that it would be shutting down the game’s operations on June 29. This is somber news for the dedicated fans who have stuck it out with Lineage for almost 13 years since the game launched in 1998. Since the announcement was made NSCsoft froze all character creation and made the game free for what time there is left.
It’s always a sad thing when an MMO you’ve invested significant time in vaporizes but as saying goes, there are plenty of fish in the sea and this applies to MMOs as well. Fortunately for Lineage fans there is always Lineage II out there for players who still want more of the Lineage universe.
