PlanetSide Next Nears

Eurogamer.net 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.

My question is...how can SOE afford to have all of these projects running without hurting their current games? I mean SOE is fairly big in the market, but has no large game that you can point at and say "Wow that is really raking in the dough."

Plus it's SOE we're talking about here, they don't deliver even 75% of what they lead you to believe will be there.

Because, and I believe I've stated this like 15 times on the Bluesnews comments before.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO HAVE 12 MILLION SUBSCRIBERS TO HAVE A SUCCESSFUL MMO.

Not UO, Not EQ, Not DAOC, Not Asheron's Call, None of them. Ever had more than 1 million subscribers. They were not concidered "failures" they were concidered Successful and Pioneers in the MMO industry.

World of Warcraft is simply a bizarre oddity in the MMO space.

EQ and EQ2 did just fine for subscriber numbers. Planetside did great when it was first out as well.

On top of that an FPSMMO is a completely different target audience than a Fantasy or Sci Fi MMO.

I'd gladly play a Planetside MMO over any other MMOG
