[Column] ArcheAge: Calculations, Schmalculations

SBFordSBFord Associate Editor - News ManagerThe Land of AZPosts: 16,595MMORPG.COM Staff Uncommon

Recently, MMORPG.com hosted an AMA session with Trion Worlds' Scott Hartsman. In it, he revealed some potentially nifty information which we take a look at in our latest ArcheAge column. See what he said, what we think before heading to the comments to add your own ideas.

Scott was sly enough to not reveal anything concrete regarding ArcheAge, but he did mention some tidbits about the worldwide rollout of ArcheAge that gave me some points to consider. The following entry, which I’m quoting below left me with a burning question in my mind about ArcheAge’s potential localization and launch roadmap.

    and on Nov.27th, XL games is changing the payment plan to something new and hinting at what the new expansion will have. That's about all the news I know of atm.

    I cant believe nobody is releasing a mmo for Christmas.

    their is nothing to play,no competition.

    looks like they are all so arrogant as to think their game is the best that the devs. are all going to release the same time next year.

    I got a feeling this is going to be a LONG way off. I fear by the time this comes out it will have slipped off the radar :(

    I think to ballpark a release date within reason we would need to know and list the other various technical items that need to be addressed. Then we would need a few of our forum posters and/or mmorpg.com writers that actually know mmo backend details to describe what kind of obstacles and effort is involved in bridging them. Outside of that I think it's just blind guessing.

    The best thing I got out of the article is that XL, Mail.ru, and Trion are communicating and trying to get on the same page. If they're making a real effort in this direction and are successful it could be huge. Think of all the games that offer different setups in different regions and fragmentation and envy that causes. If people are all getting pretty much the same thing, then I think there could be more unity in the game community at best, or less divisiveness at worst.

    I'm glad Trion and all the other publishers aren't pushing out new games for the holiday season so a few drive by players can fap over the latest and greatest only to ditch it a month later. It's much better to take the ActiBlizz approach and remove it from the oven when it's done. Releasing just for a holiday marketing schedule is a recipe for disaster. There are plenty of xpac releases this year for people to play over the holiday: EQ2, WoW, FFXIV, Rift, LotRO, and several other titles have all released content updates within the last few months. Play those.

    Wow, ArcheAge news!
    I was beginning to think Trion binned the project...could the hype train be any slower?
  • winterwinter El Paso, TXPosts: 2,276Member Uncommon

     Ok I “schmalculation" Trion will go bankrupt and Archage will never see the light of day under them. I figure that's about as likely as Trions new game "Trove" being a break out hit.

    How many times does Trion have to strike out before they realize they are doing it wrong?

    I care, but with nothing still in sight, for how long is the question.

    I gave up on Archeage since it released in Korea. Look at FFXIV ARR same time release world wide.

    There has been so little new info on this game (relative to a release date), and what has been released has been "stupid" -- i.e., cars, bikinis, etc.  At one time I was excited to see this game come out; now I'm just meh.

    By the sound of this article, I doubt I'll see it released anytime soon anyway.  The phrase "when it's ready" is a cool dev saying these days, but it needs to be backed up with a "and this is where we're currently at in relation to that goal..."  Based on what I just read, I am not sure if the game is coming out in 2014, 2015, or just someday "when it's ready."
