Cyberpunk MMO?

C1d0sC1d0s Marshall, TXPosts: 238Member

Lately, we've been treated to a plethora of fantasy MMOs. To be honest, there's no point in even listing them as they're pretty much the staple of most RPGs in general.  Why haven't we seen a legitimate attempt at cyberpunk in an MMO? Games like Deus Ex and Cyberpunk are rich with lore and character progression in unique ways. How come we haven't seen something similar?

*Note: I am not suggesting Deus Ex or Cyberpunk be transformed into an MMO. Those are merely examples.

Thoughts, ideas?

    There are Cyberpunk MMOs. Like Neocron and Face of Mankind for example. Why not more? There isn't enough interest and it a theme that isn't popular today like it was in early 2000. Everything is zombies now.

    I was about to say there are a few, but after reading your post again and seeing legitimate attempt, I came to the conclusion you are correct.

    I had never heard of those games. That's pretty neat!

    But yes, I was speaking specifically in the AAA realm of MMOs. Is it really the lack of interest? Last I recall Deus Ex sold pretty successfully.

    Have you checked out Otherland yet? Based off of the novels of Tad Williams

    Unfortunately it is published by Gamingo so kinda have to wait and see how it plays out.

    If done by a AAA company a Cyberpunk MMO would be amazing, yes there is faceof Mankind and Neocron, but  neither of those are even close to being an AAA level MMO and the masses have never even heard of either of these, meaning they had crap for advertisement. Steampunk and Cyberpunk definitly have enough interest and yet companys with money arnt willing to risk it, thus the issue with most games these days, they wont take a big gamble for big reward, they'd rather make no gamble, for little reward.

    Mess with the best, Die like the rest

    That looks alright. Unfortunately, I've never heard of Gamingo - and reasearch did't make me feel any better about the game.
