Food for thought: NCsoft bought out CoH from Cryptic in November 2007, which will soon be five years ago. Cryptic is now owned by Perfect World Entertainment. Assuming the game's engine was licensed for a 5-year period, and PWE refused to renew the license (why would they agree? NCSoft are their direct competition in the Asian MMO market), NCsoft would have no choice but to shut the game down.
With great power come great perks.
