    hands down TESO.

    Every game prior to release gets hyped here.  The amount of hype usually matches the popularity of the title and/or studio.

    So, my answer is the next big release (which off the top of my head don't know).

SWTOR is still the most successful MMO but WoW in the west, and by the end of the year we will find more people playing TOR than GW2. 

    I know the perfect song for people like you..

    id guess Wildstar for 2013

    The only game that can gather as much hype as warhammer, swtor and gw2 is elder scrolls online.

     

    Archeage and Blade&Soul will gather lots of attention among people reading mmo sites but they are korean which kills some of the hype thanks to aion and tera. Archeage could be the great hope for sandbox players, and B&S for the players that are fed up with tab-target combat.

     

    For 2014 my guess is wildstar.

    I also add my vote in for TES online.

    Personally it is Planetside 2 but an fpsmmo certainly won't generate the hype as an elder scrolls mmo

    absolutely correct Mr. Sulu.

    But only if they actually fix TOR and make it more like SWG was

     

    TSW is great btw, only MMO I play right now, loving it.

     

    GW2? Meh...

    wildstar

    neverwinter

    Arch age

    elder scrolls online

    the repopulation

    all hype trains waiting to leave the station.

    as long as there are games in development, there will be wagons to hitch your star to.

  • coretex666coretex666 PragueMember Posts: 2,576 Rare

    I think ArcheAge, but I really hope it will not be as overhyped as SWTOR or GW.

     

  • dageezadageeza london, KYMember Posts: 578

    Im going to say PS2 will be the next big hype game..

    However if or whenever carbine publicly announces that wildstar is going B2P/F2P it will jump to the top of the hype meter...

    Playing GW2..

  • MumboJumboMumboJumbo LondonMember Posts: 3,219 Uncommon

    If GW2 manages to draw mmorpg'ers and RPG'ers; then the question next is... Will PS2 manage to draw mmorpg'ers and FPS'ers?

    After that the question of how big the sandbox crowd is, I'd guess, with Archage.

    ^This, pretty much^

    NWN is out on this fall already.

    Main MMO at the moment: Guild Wars 2
    Waiting for: Pathfinder Online

    It has to be TESO. Elder Scrolls has the IP to really take the market by storm with. I think a lot of people hoping for the vastness of the ES world will overlook a few gameplay mechanics that they are putting into the game that are different from what we were  hoping for in an Elder Scrolls MMO because it is frickin' an Elder Scrolls MMO. How cool is that? Along with the big budget marketing and the constant coverage it'll get later in development, everyone will know about it.

    People who were hoping for a true ES MMO will be very disappointed. I know I was looking for a more EQ type experience that I thought I'd get if ES ever came out with an MMO. Sadly...it doesn't seem that way.

    This quote by Matt Firor really has me wondering the direction that's being taken with the game.

    "We just want to make a good game and let people who want to play it, play it. It is an online game. MMO is a tired expression. It is an online RPG and we designed it to be a great game"

    Played: EQ1 (10 Years), Guild Wars, Rift, TERA
    Tried: EQ2, Vanguard, Lord of the Rings Online, Dungeons and Dragons Online, Runes of Magic and countless others...
    Currently Playing: GW2

    you think 2014 is the year for Wildstar?

    not that i know any better,

    but when they announced it last summer they showed ingame footage and said they had already been working on it for over 3.5 years  (in aug 2011)

    http://www.vg247.com/2011/08/17/carbine-announces-wildstar-aims-at-mmo-reinvention/

    if Wildstar released in 2014 that would be almost 7 years of development

    Hopefully Michael Moorcock's Elric will be the first MMO developed by Rockstar other then that I dont see one.

    Evil will always triumph because good is dumb....

    I would say Archage if it finds an Ocidental publisher (probably will!) and Planetside 2. Then there will come "the next big thing" Open World MMOFPS.
  • Hydros13Hydros13 New York, NYMember Posts: 30

    I think the next hype train is going to be either PS2 / Wildstar / TESO / Archeage.

    From what I've head from the latest videos from GC 2012 about Wildstar, it is probably going to be released in Q4 2013. (Closed beta starting early next year)

  • GrayGhost79GrayGhost79 Webster, MAMember Posts: 4,775 Uncommon

    WoD, PS2 and Archage

    TESO has already recieved to much negative press. 

    Titan maybe but Blizzard has been releasing a lot of duds lately and it may catch up with them by the time Titan rolls around. 

    So... not sure, Blade and soul maybe but thats a bit of a long shot as well. Was sad to see TSW flop.

    Id be surprised if any of the upcoming mmos that we know about will have the same hype tsunami as GW2.i think WoD will be somewhat big, though I'm sure it will definitely not be for everyone.Other than that i only see small blips on the radar.
  • SlyLoKSlyLoK Sugar Grove, VAMember Posts: 1,954 Uncommon
    TESO hype will probably kick in later this / year first of next year and then ArcheAge at some point next year.
