Whats the next big MMO soon to be released? After Defiance...

ch0sen0nech0sen0ne Los Angeles, CAPosts: 87Member Common

I'm getting Defiance for sure... but I'm just wondering if there are any other MMO's coming out soon that have a set release date. 

and none of this Q1 or Q2 release date shenanigans, I want exact dates...

    Some will say Neverwinter (I wouldn't).. most will say TESO or ArcheAge.

    Me? I think TESO is what I want to try the most out of whats coming.. but I'm not very hyped about any at the moment, including TESO.

    World of Darkness is what I have my eye on the most.. but there isn't much to see yet.

    Only other one I know of with a set date is Age of Wushu (4/10).

    Doubt that's what you'd call a 'big MMO', since it'll be sandbox niche.  Rest of the year looks good though, with Neverwinter, FFXIV ARR, and TESO

  • AerowynAerowyn BUZZARDS BAY, MAPosts: 7,928Member

    what's considered big? Neverwinter and Age of Wushu are set for Q1 releases.. although neverwinter may be pushed to early Q2 we will see. FFXIV RR will get closed beta soon so depending on that release may not be too far.

    By years end you got possibly TESO, wildstar, blade & soul, Archage,  the repopulation, black desert online, star citizen

    last 3 may be 2014 though

    I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

    ^ this. Though personally I wouldn't call Defiance "big" either. I really have a hard time calling it AAA.

    I did battle with ignorance today, and ignorance won.

    To exercise power costs effort and demands courage. That is why so many fail to assert rights to which they are perfectly entitled - because a right is a kind of power but they are too lazy or too cowardly to exercise it. The virtues which cloak these faults are called patience and forbearance.

    silly me forgot ARCHAGE :P they are looking at a late 2013 release possibly as well

    yea i saw that they mentioned "something" by end of this year.. but even still I HIGHLY doubt actual release will be anytime earlier than 2014

    FFXIV:ARR is in its closed beta, guessing its near phase 2 .

  • coretex666coretex666 PraguePosts: 1,934Member Uncommon

    I would say that next big MMO released will be "Titan" by Blizzard, but it will not be released this year.

    If you mean big like in terms of budget, then probably TESO / ArcheAge.

    I am a little sceptical about them becoming big MMOs though.

    ^ this. Though personally I wouldn't call Defiance "big" either. I really have a hard time calling it AAA.

    But it is AAA - 5 years in development, by a 100+ person Dev team with a 50mil budget (recent article quoted the show costing around 50mil and the game also 50mil) including built from scratch game engine with full shot validation with pixel perfect accuracy, on three different platforms (ps3 and xbox have their own certification process which is brutal for online games, PC games don't have to be subjected to such scrutiny). 

    Oh and a TV series tie-in, with constant updates planned after launch, because the game and the show will co-evolve.

    None of that matters, as an alpha tester I know that its AAA game.

    It won't be released next year either, its long ways off.

  • SpottyGekkoSpottyGekko RotterdamPosts: 3,845Member Uncommon

    Any "big" MMO that intends to release in 2013 will have been in development for at least 2 to 3 years by now, and it's highly unlikely that they would have kept it a complete secret for all that time.

     

    So if it's not been mentioned by any of the replies so far, it's either not releasing this year or it isn't "big"...

  • YaevinduskYaevindusk Ul''dah, CAPosts: 1,537Member Uncommon

     

    Most MMOs in the last eight years or so have been disappointments for me as a whole.  I'm not even sure anymore, and it really depends on what you're looking for in a game.

    If you want Player Made Content and or a semi sandbox environment you'll probably be interested in both Neverwinter (for it's ability for players to make entirely new maps to host custom campaigns and quests) or Archage with the ability to build houses and get real estate in game.  In terms of the most interesting combat mechanics between those two, I'd have to give Neverwinter the victory as melee are very fun to play (unless you're looking at possible combinations instead of actual fighting mechanics, as Archage has a lot of potential classes), and even the wizard is great once you get used to a few issues here and there and learn to actually play it.

    If you're looking for something that has great graphics and brings most of the ideas in the past five years into the fold, along with it's own ideas and systems relevent to it's IP, then I'd have to say Final Fantasy XIV ARR will be a good match.  It seems to have a great housing system as well, in addition to a lot of fanfare and the ability to raise and bond with your chocobo in various ways.  It's likely to have most of the old favorite classes of FFXI as well, as Theif / Samurai / Ninja / Blue Mage / Red mage were specifically quoted by Yoshi-P in interviews as classes he'd like to introduce in patches.

    Elder Scrolls has a lot going against it, but also much going for it.  They're trying to reach out to two different audiences: MMO Players who are split between different payment models (though getting tired of P2P as a whole), and the ESO players who want an engaging setting and aren't used to / willing to pay monthly for a game once they have already bought it.  If they go P2P they could alienate ES players and B2P / F2P players will just go to the myriad other options available, and if they go F2P then B2P and P2P players will likely not give it a chance either, and ES players may give it a chance, but may not be devoted as much since they didn't put the money down for the initial game as they do with their normal fix of Elder Scrolls merchandise.  Honestly I would've thought a B2P with special P2P only servers (able to opt in and out of at will when wanting only to spend time in P2P community) would've been a great route, but they have the whole mega server thing.  Granted though, they have a system in place whereby you can make a check saying you're a Role Player and they'll only phase you wit other people who have that, so I guess they could have an additional box like that if you're an optional sub if they did this.

    If you're looking for one of the best action fighter MMOs around, I'd probably go with Blade N Soul; the game is absolutely beautiful and the combat boasts the most impressive animations that I have ever seen in any game (even single player).  Not able to say much more with regards to that.

    Then we have MMOs that are claming to be Sandbox games such as Trials of Ascension and Everquest Next and a few others that had Kickstarters; the kickstarter ones won't likely see the light of day until 2016/2017 if things go as planned.

     

     

     

     

     

    When faced with strife or discontent, the true nature of a man is brought forth. It is then when we see the character of the individual. It is then we are able to tell if he is mature enough to grin and bare it, or subject his fellow man to his complaints and woes.

  • DMKanoDMKano Gamercentral, AKPosts: 8,530Member Uncommon
    A big AAA MMO can't be done under 3 years(obviously this by today's standards, in 10 years we might be able to churn them out in a year with better tools), realistically you are looking at 4-5 years from conception to launch.

    You must understand that for these people mmo=WOW,they will keep judge any game that don't have end game raiding and gear treadmill as a poor game,this is the mentality that ruined the mmo genre and will only satisfied by WOW 2.

    Considering that AAA has no actual definition (much like a popcorn movie) its nothing more than an industry wide hype term. Same thing with "pixel perfect shooter". Especially judging from my own time in the current "alpha" build. I am sorry that you have such low expectations.

    Not at all. There is nothing new in the game at all, and what they have taken they have no executed on very well in the least. The same piss poor questing (and server instabilities) that Rift has combined with wanna be Borderlands style weapons is just meh. I mean the games cut scenes currently do not even form a single coherent storyline, and thats before berating them for the rather aged graphics. I can only hope that much like Skyrim they release a high resolution texture pack for Pc, along with a moddable interface to get rid of the console garbage.

    I will look at TESO, but don't know much about it, I usually wait till I can get my hands on something to see if it is something I would like.

     

    Archeage and EQNext are the next 2 that I am most excited about, AA I am a little worried about a few of it's elements, so I am hoping they can pull off having a playable preview in August for EQNext, like they said.  I know they changed directions again, but I guess they can keep the art work and everything else, so that should make it more feasible.

    Well saying Defiance is the next big mmo is kind of  laughable to be honest.  The next big mmo will be Blizzard's Titan and they will continue to rule all.

    "Blizzard's Titan" is beginning to sound like "Duke Nukem: Forever" at this stage...

    It's been little more than a rumour for years now. If you take too long to finish any game, it may become irrelevant when it's finally finished, because the market will have changed fundamentally by that time. Unless they are scrapping everything and starting over every 3 years or so...

  • ch0sen0nech0sen0ne Los Angeles, CAPosts: 87Member Common

    granted yes Defiance isn't going to be a huge success, I just simply meant AAA quality. Games like TESO, wildstar, blade & soul, Archage,  the repopulation is what I'm refering too. Just wondering which one was next... becuase I have a feeling Defiance isn't going to last long and my friend isn't that much of a FPS fan to begin with.

     

    Personaly my moneys on The Repopulation, SWG fans are going to be flocking in droves.

    Same, I wouldn't even call it an MMO either.

    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!!!
