PlanetSide Next Nears has word from Sony Online Entertainment's John Smedley on upcoming MMORPG plans. He tells them The Agency is still expected for PC and PS3 later this year, and says PlanetSide Next is due in the first half of this year, saying it should be late first quarter or early second quarter. He also tells them that in addition to their announced upcoming projects (The Agency, PS3 Free Realms, PlanetSide Next, and EverQuest Next), SOE also has "a lot" of unannounced projects in the works.

Quick google search showed they laid off people from both EQ2 and Vanguard in July of 2010. And according to people who recently quit Vanguard, there's one NA server and one Euro server.....and it has one developer. So you know Vanguard is basically dead in the water at this point, once it's subs drop off to non-self sustaining levels they'll can it.

MXO people, I have no idea on those folks...I would guess the team was never very big to begin with since they bought the game on it's downward spiral.

And now it makes even less sense, if they were laying people off and had all these other projects in the works especially the "a lot of unannounced projects". I think we are being bullshitted on a number of fronts.

Simply put Veterator although you say they don't have staff doing nothing - they do have 99% of the staff from stuff like Matrix Online and Vangaurd idiling - theres no way those people are working as hard in the first 6 weeks after launch as they are now. But the monthly subscripstion is still the same!
