Blizzard's MMOFPS?

French site NoFrag offers a rumor (in the site's native French) on Blizzard's upcoming mystery MMOG, as 2010 continues its pace for a record number of game-related rumors. As interpreted by Google Translate, we see they are reporting the game will be an MMO first-person shooter set in a futuristic environment, attributing this information to "d'une source proche du dossier," which is the French equivalent of "a source familiar with the matter." They say the MMOFPS will have two components, one a social/lifestyle element like The Sims Online, with the other being where the combat takes place. Blizzard obviously has an existing IP that would match up with this idea, and it is also quite compatible with Blizzard's explanations that their unannounced MMOG is "significantly differentiated enough" from World of Warcraft.

There was some talk of a Planetside 2, Planetside as it stands right now has very few people playing. In my opinion it's due to them introducing the BFRs and throwing off the little balance the game had that drove out the rest of the players. But that game had a lot of problems they never addressed, the lag only got worse because they wouldn't commit resources toward the game. And it might just have simply been because they didn't know how to fix it, so they tried to recoup the costs and do as little as possible to keep people paying. I mean that game was a while ago, I believe it was there when DSL was just beginning to show up in my area.


Global Agenda isn't really an MMO. You can participate in 12v12 rounds that might play toward a persistent world...but if anything it's more like WoW battlegrounds (much lower player count than most the bgs) attached to a single player game.

I guess if anyone can make a proper MMOFPS, Blizzard would be the ones to do it. I just hope they can allow for really large battles, and keep some "magical" feel to the game. Not necessarily fantasy based...but could be something like Vampire Masquerade where guns aren't necessarily the best way to kill. A little bit of mutant/superhuman/nanotech/magic/whatever...

Still Im sure someone else suspecting this is what Blizz is up to could come to market with one before Blizz announces theirs officially.
