EverQuest Next Set For PS4, SOE Hints At Brand New IP
If you own a PlayStation 4 and you're an MMO fan, we've got all sorts of good news.
Sony Online Entertainment president John Smedley first confirmed that the popular MMORPG EverQuest Next will indeed be headed to Sony's new console. Then, while he admitted that it's "taking time to do this right," he added that Planetside 2 should hit the PS4 during the first half of 2014. Fans of the franchise will be happy to know that SOE has "lots of plans" for the implementation of new continents. But perhaps most enticing of all, Smedley teased a brand new project:
"SWG PLAYERS – OUR NEXT GAME (not announced yet) IS DEDICATED TO YOU. Once we launch it… you can come home now."
He clarified that it's a "completely new IP" and in fact, the data is hiding somewhere online. "Someone just has to find it," Smedley said. Well, I don't care for the MMO genre, so I'm not about to go looking. But you're all more than welcome...good luck with that.
