    This list is cool and all, but what we should all REALLY be excited for are the 64,513,786 "F2P with Cash Shop" games that are going to release in 2018! Fun, fun! And 90% of them will be hyped as the "next big thing(s)" so you can be sure your disappointment will once again be off the scale in 2018. No rest for the weary in today's entitled, whining, "F2P or Bust" MMO market!



    And that's not even to mention the 616,000 new crowdfunded games we will be assailed with over the course of next year! I mean, the hype for some of those is already up in the stratosphere, and they don't even have functional demos! Hoo boy, I'm already so stoked for 2018's awesome slate of "new" MMOs, I need a cold shower!



    Well, between those and Steam Direct probably shitting itself...

    ...at least Jim, fucking Sterling, son! will be there to entertain us. :D

    They should do a review about two years later to see how the games on those top ten lists actually did. I wonder how the top ten anticipated for 2015 or 2016 have done.

    Next time do a week long poll on the question at-hand, total the results, and write an article about it. Otherwise, this is just an opinion and the title incorrectly describes what's being listed.

    I noticed, some weird terms they used to place games there, I guess they consider some sort of alpha/beta/release expected in 2018 to set that list, so that would exclude SC being already playable in alpha.

    Though deff more anticipated than games listed like Phanteon, CU, CoE, AoC and Crowfall. 

    Also interesting how Crowdfunding literally dominates this list.

    Will it have public access? I think that's the defining factor in released in this article. It's really the foundation for any title release. Can the public access it normally? I think by the end of the year most or all of those games will have some sort of general access state that doesn't require a massive backer package.

    On that list I'm looking forward to ESO and Ashes with Camelot Unchained and Bless as tentative. I'm only going to play the heavy duty grouping games if I find people committed to playing for a few months first which is why CU and Bless are tentative and Pantheon and the rest of that type are on the wait and see list.

    How can CoE.. which has a current ETA for the end of 2019.. be on the "Most Wanted MMOs of 2018" list?

    WTF?
    Lol, that was my reaction too. Half of that list are games for 2019 and beyond. And that's being generous. Kinda figured it'd be more hyping of Kickstarter games though.

    To be fair to the author though... this is one particular case where I don't think I could've done any better... there's so few new MMO's coming out that I can see why they went with the "any ten will do" approach.

    Bless should be #1 because its actually confirmed for 2018.

    Crowfall might be confirmed too but not sure. LOL at the expansions.
    I pretty much skimmed over the rest after seeing how low Bless, the only MMO on that list that isn't BS promises or pure speculation, got ranked. These lists get worse every time. xD

    What!? No mention of the Destiny 2 DLC!?

    Only kidding.
    I will say that 2018 doest look to have much going for it.

    I look forward to CU, but I feel I will be slightly disappointed.
    Only because I'm guilty of holding out hopes for a feeling like a DAoC2, but know no matter what comes, nothing can recreate the shock and awe the first game gave me

    SC will be on the year 2037 list with a phrase: "Star citizens alpha 74.0 is now coming to an end and will be entering closed beta 1.0".

    I don't think the particular order is the important point or what the state of release the game is in. If Suzie put her personal fave on the top I would guess it to be the WoW xpac, not Crowfall or Bless.

    Here's a list of games that will be offering some sort of release state next year. It gives the reader an opportunity to comment on what they're looking forward to and how they plan on participating. But as usual we get hung up on the semantics of "what released means" and the order of the list and whether a game qualifies by genre definition instead of discussing the games themselves and how we'll play them.

    I think it's the quality comments that is getting worse over time.

    After reading that list all I can say is I'm glad my Steam and GOG libraries are well stocked with many titles to play.

    It already has, earlier or not so nothing special happens in that aspect, maybe if they announced the beta for next year but nope, so stands as it is.

    I myself wait for several on that list, but I don't expect most of them in 2018, some alpha and betas releasing sure.

    Greed and pleasing the masses killed the mmorpg genre. You can buy an island plot in crowfall for 4500$ Wich is ridiculous.

    I partly agree with you, but Crowfall is quite bad example for that one. I mean, OK you can buy that plot (which, oh by the way, noone is doing) and then do...what?
     W...aaagh?

    What we need is a list of proposed MMO's that will never see the light of day.  You can bet some of these on this list would be on that list!

    I think the list should be ordered by the max level your character can reach at launch; all other orders are just lamerzzz. ;)

    Well, it looks more and more like the "MMO elite gamers" are getting what they wanted. The big money is leaving the MMO segment, yet there are still some old school vet developers out there trying to make good games. I'd think the elite would be crapping their pantheons in anticipation...

    For some reason I thought the list was numbered... until I went to look at it again after reading your comment (I was about to say, then why on Earth give them numbers at all). Not that bad then on second thought. Still meh on the titles though.

    Let's give math another chance, eh?

    Non-crowdfunded titles:
    - Project W
    - BLESS
    - New World
    - World of Warcraft: Next Expansion
    - ESO: Next Chapter
    -------------------------
    5 games in total


    Crowdfunded titles:
    - Chronicles of Elyria
    - Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen
    - Camelot Unchained
    - Ashes of Creation
    - Crowfall
    -------------------------
    5 games in total

    Now excuse me, I am a little slow. But how the fuck this list is dominated by crowdfunded games?! And consider they have listed every single AAA MMO in development, even brought on expansions and freaking DLCs to not to fill their list with crowdfunded projects, and yet people nag about ...

    O_o I didn't do the math the first thing that popped when seeing the list was many crowdfunded titles as the most anticipated MMOs.

    Independent of the exact stats, it still is huge comparing to the past, that today crowdfunded MMOs represent so much of what is being expected in the future within the genre.

    lol... Is this a joke , so a list that has 8 games that most likely will not release in 18 and 2 exp that may...
    Wishful thinking at best , for any of those 8 to be in any kind of enjoyable playable state in 18 ... ya know .. counting chickens and all

    If there were many MMORPGs under development by AAA companies then we wouldn't be having all these crowdfunded ones going on. Out of those 5, 2 are expansions, 2 are Korean and only 1 is actually a game being developed in the west right now.
