SOE on PlanetSide 2 in 2025

Smed's Blog has word from SOE's John Smedley on their goal of supporting PlanetSide 2 for more than a decade in a massive update about the MMOFPS sequel, following a tweet showing off concept art for a Bastion Fleet Carrier being designed for the game (thanks VG247 where they also note a post on Massively discussing plans to make Station Cash purchases in the game available account-wide). Here's a portion of the post on the game's future:

We have games that have run for over 13 years, so when we're making Planetside 2 we aren't looking at what it's like in 2012. We're thinking about a game we plan to have running in 2025. Yeah. Really. I plan on doing a lot of direct comparisons to other games. When I'm doing that in no way do I want any of this to be viewed as me slamming other games. I've played the heck out of Battlefield 2 and 3 as well as BFBC2. I've also played a ton of MW2 and MW3 as well as TF2. I am primarily a PC gamer. I've also played on teams extensively. All of the above games are amazing and are made by people with tremendous talent and passion that I have the utmost respect for. We're making Planetside 2 to be a game we at SOE want to play. We've gotten a lot of inspiration from elements of the above games as well as many other games.. including our own and especially from the original Planetside which we released back in 2003. Well ahead of it's time. This isn't meant to be a super comprehensive FAQ on Planetside 2 - just some things I wanted to get out there after reading a lot of questions and comments. Also - it's late.. I'm not spending a ton of time formatting this too well, so sorry for the wall of text in many spots.

The problem with the posters in this forum is that many get OWNED everytime they log into a decent first person shooter. They admit it.

Then they come on here and bash COD, BF3, PS2 you name it.

I understand you guys are not defined by your 0.1 K/D but playing farmville and/or dress up barbie online and then coming to Blues News and bashing decent shooters is not the answer.

How about you try to come to grips with the fact your GET OWNED and dont have the reflexes to play online for starters.

People LOVE COD its obvious. But they hate it here on BN. Now why would that be?

Have to agree with you for once on something. I by no means have a godlike KD, but I at the very least hover around 2.0 in PS2, and a lot of that comes from running with a solid Outfit (Most of us played PS1 together and have stuck together for 9 years since). The game is very team oriented and most of the people on here seem to be the type where they just want to jump in by themselves and think they should be able to rule the world in a Team Oriented game. For once, a game promotes actual team play, something they complain not enough games have. And it's too hard for them to get involved and find that team to run with.

The game is far, far superior to BF3 or COD in every regard as far as I'm concerned. But I have a team.

And to Axis, it's not "Buzzing" in your normal Clan Scene, because the normal "clan scene" are usually like 16 people who play things like TF2 and CS, COD and BF3. This is a much larger scale, to have a succeessful Outfit in PS2 requires a Platoon minimum. So you're looking at more "Guild" style groups that play Planetside, 40+ people. Not small TF and CS clans. This is a game played by mostly 300-400 person Gaming Communities. Like Sturmgrenadier, Xen of Onslaught, DevilDogs, etc. Large, large communities that go into MMO's together.
