We already see GW2 (which itself sold pretty well when released) to have more actiony combat, and so does NWN.
Is the trend of MMOs going in the direction of ARPGs?
Now, before anyone says Halo also sold a lot, there are devs moving in that direction too ... Defiance, and Destiny (which is close enough to a MMO, but not quite). So may be FPS is another direction MMO, or MMO-like games will go? May be now MMO is going to splinter .. ARPG-MMO, MOBA-MMO, FPS-MMOs .....
