They will. If you had gone and looked, you would have a) found the answer to your original question, and b) found out that after Feb 1st, they will be offering lifetime subs for $300 and with no bonuses.
IMO, if you're going to buy... buy now. Right now, I wouldn't spend $299 on a lifetime subscription. If you end up not buying before the first, I'd advise you to hold on to your cash and see if they manage to resolve their server issue.
From personal experience with dealing with lifetime subs trust me they WONT come around again. Its far better for the company to hold a steady income from monthly subs than having a lump sum.
The lump sum is merely a way to keep the servers populated and also give a bit of the development costs back quickly. After Feb 1st it will never be in circulation again.
Their marketing person made a post a while back stating that lifetime subs will be $299 after Feb 1st. You will not receive extra slots or the Liberated Borg, however.
Keep in mind that there's no financial advantage to the current lifetime subscription versus the discounted year rate for 25 months. If this game should fail in 12 months, you won't be out $120 if you go with the discounted year.
