EverQuest Next has been redone from scratch so that it's not EverQuest III. Smedley promises it's going to be the "world's largest sandbox-style MMO ever made." It'll be playable at the next Fan Faire.

Enjoy the wait, EQ Next has been talked about for years and years, i don't see it happening. Hell they just recently a few months ago shutdown 3 studios and fired more then 250 people. The EQ series is going down the tube and EQ Next is just a wishful thinking ideal for EQ fanboys.
The rumor mill states that the original concept of EQ Next has been discarded and a newer facebook style of game has taken its place. Perhaps that's why there have been absolutely no updates from the developers over the last few months.
EQNext was first mentioned august 2009
no art was seen for the game until Summer 2010 when soe gave some sketches
there has always been a "black out" regarding info about it - nothing new there
at the 2011 summers fanfaire,
SOE didnt talk about it beyond saying it would use the same game engine as PlanetSide 2
maybe we will hear more info at the October 2012 fanfaire but I doubt it
SOE was still hiring for EQ Next
in Feb 2012, Greg Spence, former lead programmer of EQ2, has been moved over EQ Next
