NC Soft has registered the domain names coh2.com and coh3.com, but whether that means they have any plans to bring the game back in any form remains to be seen. (Doubtful, since they were registered back in 2004, but they continue to be renewed). Currently, they only redirect to the NC Soft main page.

page. And while a CoH sequel doesn't look to be anywhere on the horizon, The Statesman became a GuestFighter in NC Soft's MOBA, ''Master X Master''.

All is not lost, however, as a large group of fans are starting work on a SpiritualSuccessor called ''VideoGame/CityOfTitans'' (after a successful Kickstarter campaign), with two other projects also in the works: ''[[http://www.heroes-and-villains.com Heroes and Villains]]'' (by a splinter group from the City of Titans project) and ''[[http://valiance.shogn.net Valiance Online]]'' (by a separate company that is also simultaneously working on a fantasy-genre MMO). And on top of that, fans continue to try to find groups to buy the original game and bring it back, with a fourth attempt being underway at the time of writing. There's also ''VideoGame/ChampionsOnline'', another SpiritualSuccessor by Cryptic Studios whose team incorporates many former Paragon employees.

* ExperiencePenalty: The penalty for dying was gaining "Experience Debt". While in debt, half of the XP you earned would instead go toward working it off.

* WolverineClaws: The Claws power set. This actually got [=NCSoft=] into some legal trouble with [[MarvelComics Marvel]].

** The villainous Epic Archetypes clarify that being TheChosenOne is fluid. Those archetypes involve the player character being an Arachnos soldier who finds out about the list of Chosen Ones and plots to alter it so their own name is on the list and they could gain far more power than being a mere mook. In a later storyarc, Arachnos has reason to create another copy of the list entirely from scratch, at which point it's revealed that the player character is now legitimately on the list due to their own hard work to become The Chosen One.

* ParentalIncest: Actually, make that ''Grand''Parental Incest, implied between Tyrant and Dominatrix (the evil versions of Statesman and Ms. Liberty), especially in the spin-off comic.

* ParentalIncest: Actually, make that ''Grand''Parental Incest, implied between Tyrant and Dominatrix (the evil versions of Statesman and Ms. Liberty), especially in the spin-off comic. The narration describes Dominatrix as having caught Tyrant's attention and "serving him loyally, in all capacities," while she's drawn kneeling by his throne.

* ItsPersonal: For many fans, the announcement of the shutdown of City Of Heroes left them extraordinarily pissed off at NC Soft. Many still haven't forgiven the company for it. For pretty much [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters just about everyone]] the shutdown announcement was met by massive campaigns. First to keep the game alive, and then from being forgotten, and now there are campaigns whose goal is to attempt to resurrect it. And then there's [[BeyondTheImpossible Atlas Park 33]]... When the game was announced as closing, a massive meeting of heroes ''and'' villains converged on Atlas Park, straining the servers so much it had to create ''[[UpToEleven 33 instances of the location just to handle them all]]''. While the rest of the instances eventually closed out, the 33rd instance, known as Atlas Park 33 was kept in existence by an ongoing vigil that lasted [[NeverSayDie right up till the game's final moments.]]
