And On The Third Day, FileFront Was Risen

OK, it's been a bit longer than three days. But with Easter around the corner, it's somewhat apt, because just as everyone was done saying goodybe to FileFront, it's now back from the dead.

The popular PC file download service was closed late last month after its owners, Ziff Davis Media (who were trying to offload the site), failed to find a buyer. Yet no sooner did the site close than, with its value crashing through the floor, it seems somebody stepped in to save it. A message on FileFront's website reads:

FileFront has been acquired by the original founders of the site and will NOT be suspended as previously announced. This is NOT an April Fool's Joke.

Several more paragraphs of that make it rather clear that, yes, this is not a joke. As of writing, all "previously suspended" services are up and running, and the new/old owners "look forward to improving FileFront and serving the gaming community for years to come."
