City of Heroes Emulator SEGS Guesstimates a Launch Window

As eager as I am to see the City of Heroes legacy project MMOs come to life, there sometimes just ain’t nothin’ like the real thing. So if you’re like me, you’ll perhaps be intrigued to know that a rough SEGS launch window has been put out there. Emphasis on “rough”, though.

This little nugget of information comes by way of a response from the SEGS Twitter account, who chimed in on a conversation that spawned from a September blog post made by Massively Overpowered writer Justin “Syp” Olivetti, where he mused if he’d still be playing City of Heroes, SWG or other shuttered MMOs if they were still online.

In the responses, one reader outright said they would play City of Heroes “all day long”. SEGS replied with: “Can ya pencil us in for like 1.5 years from now? That’s our rough guesstimate.”

It’s important to bear in mind that this is a pretty off-the-cuff remark and so should definitely not be taken as gospel for release. That said, the team behind SEGS seems to be making some steady progress. Its most recent update on October 3rd made a variety of improvements on powers, certain Inspirations and other fixes.

Our Thoughts

Look, we’re probably not meant to report on emulators, but the City of Heroes community is one of the more impactful ones in MMO gaming and the original game’s closure spawned multiple crowdfunded titles. So that’s what’s prompted the report. As ever, we wish the SEGS team luck and clear legal skies in their project development.
