    Hightly doubtful that it's NCSoft, we'd know about it already so I'd say you're wrong.

    I hope it's not NCsoft. That's where MMOs go to die.

    I make spreadsheets at work - I don't want to make them for the games I play.

    Would be fitting since AA is doomed for failure then isnt it.

    Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!

    Subscription Gaming, especially MMO gaming is a Cash grab bigger then the most P2W cash shop!

    Bring Back Exploration and lengthy progression times. RPG's have always been about the Journey not the destination!!!

    NCsoft is actually a fantastic publisher, they're great at marketing and publicizing and managing new games. GW2 is an enormous (and maintained) success, and it is published by NCsoft. They're fantastic publishers, and I believe that should be their main focus in the industry because they excell at it, and not at making great games.

    Localization is normally handled in-house until they can be handed off to the foreign management of the game. XLgames has been working on the english/localization of ArcheAge for a long time now, so how much work NCsoft actually has ahead of them in that department is probably minimal at this point considering ArcheAge was designed from the ground up to be a multi-regional appeal, the game really is fantastic.

    I'd take NCSoft / Nexon any day of the week over some other big publisher, like EA.

     

    NCSoft did apparently express some interest in publishing ArcheAge originally, they even registered a domain for ArcheAge (discussed around mid 2012).  However, either they didn't get the contract, or it is one of the best kept secrets in the gaming industry.

     

    /tin-foil-hat :

    I imagine they will flip a few bucks selling the domain name(s) though - perhaps that was their original leverage.  They could also hold the domains hostage and/or threaten to sell it to a gold farming network, heh.

    never thought I would say this, but I would rather have SOE publish it and heres why.   If AA has a monthly fee it will fail simple as that SOE is dedicated to making all future games they publish and develop F2P and not some buy to win f2p check out PS2s F2P that is the model all future SOE games will carry.

    There is a publisher for NA. It is not NCSoft. There is no date set as of yet. I am sure that they will be announcing something by the end of the year.

    SOE has EverQuest Next eventually coming out, and EQNext and ArcheAge are both being declared as high-fantasy sandbox hybrid style games.  I couldn't see SOE doing publishing for ArcheAge, because they would be trying to promote a game by XLGames, while at the same time trying to promote their next edition to the EverQuest IP (which is more lucrative).

     

    Seems like a conflict of interest, and I doubt XLGames would opt to gimp their western release like that, with ArcheAge being SOE's bastard child, second to their EQ IP.

    NCSoft does market well but I hate how they treat NCWest like crap. They also downsided those offices so it would seem strange if they are planing to expand them again so quickly. Personally I also just don't trust NC any more with what they did on CoX.

    I would much rather see EnMasse get the deal. Tera might have only had limited success but they seemed to have done well with what they have been given.

    All die, so die well.

    EQNext info is all rumors the truth is while people think it will be a sandbox game Smed himself said it will have the same amount of classes as EQ1.  So how does that work with sandbox ?   Also EQ, EQ2, Vanguard are all pretty much the same style of fantasy MMO add in Dragons Prophet and thats another fantasy MMO for SOE so they obviously don't care about having multiple games of the same type.

    If it were a deal where xl brought the game to ncsoft to publish, i'd be ok with that.  As long as they do not own it.

    Smed never called it a sandbox, he said that every EQ player expect there to be raids, implying that ofc there is going to be that in EQnext as well....only thing he said was, that it will have sandbox features.  am looking forward to see how each of these 2 titles will be recieved.

    Well.. for NA EnMasse would be a good choice.. i guess. And if you look at their site you even see space for a new unannounced new game.. most probably asia again. It could be ArcheAge.

    But EU would be fucked up.. especially when it turns out like with Tera. EnMasse is unfortunatly NA only.. and there are not a lot of good EU only MMO publisher around.. if any. So i personally would beg for NCSoft most probably the best choice for EU.

    The game will be released in US/EU before the end of the year, so the announcement is going to come a lot sooner, most likely this month.

    Er..

    John Smedley has said EQnext will be a sandbox experience. It's even going to be an open world, featuring a more sophisticated version of the engine thats powering PlanetSide 2 right now..!

    THey are waiting till video card and DX11 is in everyone's hands..no need to hurry, the WoW'tardz are not yet totoally sick of their game. SOE knows whats coming..  the tide~

    EverQuest Next is “largest sandbox MMO ever designed,” says SOE’s John Smedley

     

    Lot of other false statements in this thread. Does anyone read any more?

    Just want to tell you that since at least three days ArcheAge managed to keep the same level as Aion in Korea in terms of playeactivity  now. Making it the 3rd most played MMORPG in Korea. Only NCSoft MMOs ever could keep that up for more than a week or sometimes even just hours in these top rankings. Yes its free open beta but the steady interest is important to note.

    If anything I'd rather see it not being published and thus supported by NCSoft overseas as XlGames simply appear to be a highly potential competition in their home market already. On the other hand if Archage keeps it up they could turn in most of their investment within half a year and I see chances opening up for XLGames publishing AA on their own in the West, like NCSoft does or BlueHole tried.

  • jinxxed0jinxxed0 columbia, SCPosts: 838Member
    I hope not. Anyone who actually likes NCSoft has never suffered through having a game published by them taken away. They're pretty dodgey too and are always getting kicked out of game coventions for being a-holes or whatever.

    I hope people dont get hyped thinking Smed means a traditional sandbox MMO.   For my money the only aspect of EQN that will be sandboxish is the open world.   If people think its gonna be a pvp game or something they're in for a huge let down im sure it will have pvp but it is going to be a PVE game with PVP not a PVP game with PVE.   With that said going PVP with that game engine is gonna be epic hundreds of people with 0 lag.

    Actually would not work as I guess ArcheAge is copyrighted and the owner of the copyright could simply claim the domain

    I really want to try this game out, it looks pretty decent.
