    Should be interesting considering they laid off 30% of their workforce.  I realize most of their library is on life support / maintenance mode but still.  They have yet to produce a title of their own doing so will be interesting to see what they are bringing to the table.

    I know we joke about it constantly but would bet money it is a mobile game based on an existing universe.  I just cannot see them having the funds to produce something big.

    My money is on another shit BR game using either EQ or Planetside IP.  They have experience with BR thanks to H1Z1...and they have building experience from Landmark.  My guess is it will be a Fortnite clone using tech from Landmark and Planetside.

    From some other info I'm reading, it looks like it may be PlanetSide Arena. Apparently they filed some trademarks for the name and this youtube channel was set-up in October https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCXZNafwGxh0ONGJdv0Ugk5A/featured

    probably an older online game that was discontinued and closed......Tabula Rasa/Warhammer Online sort of thing?? Mind you with the crap thats been comming out it would not be soo bad, they would be amongst equals and in many case's above them :expressionless:

    Maybe they hired a bunch of people to complete a game and then the lay off was just completion of said game. Happens in different industries all the time.
  • WellspringWellspring Member EpicPosts: 1,200
    Unfortunately, I'm willing to bet it won't be an MMORPG.

    It's called Survivor: Daybreak

    100 Devs on an island with shrinking resources.  They have to vote others off in order to stay alive.  It will feature some survival game aspects.

    I was going to go with Matrix Online 2, a re-release of Matrix Online with a different title.  But I like your idea better.

    Maybe the people who made Total Drama Island can make an animated version for us.



    Logic, my dear, merely enables one to be wrong with great authority.

    Yeah i read something a couple weeks ago that was hinting a new game,i just didn't figure so quickly.
    Guess what,it is Christmas time,they are going to whip out something soooooooo fast to generate cash flow,this will look like 2-3 months of work,similar to H1Z1's release.This is going to be garbage.

    They will not make a new engine,this will be the H1Z1 engine,i expect since devs now a days tend to not be very creative,yet another battle Royale game.

    "some people"lol ,yeah like when they used Legendary Lea to promote H1Z1 and she never stepped foot in the game ever.They are going to pick notable streamers to misleadingly promote the game and also imo,they will PAY these streamers to make sure lots of good words are said.

    I bet they reached out to Ninja,TueFue,100% a couple good looking females,my guess probably 5 will get paid.Of course i do not expect Ninja to show up or even accept,it would look too obvious,the FTC would need to investigate.Now of course they could pay off these big names and simply put "sponsored"but i doubt it,better to mislead people.

    Never forget 3 mile Island and never trust a government official or company spokesman.

    Another hunch?

    ONE MAP,likely was going to be a new H1Z1 map or maybe even an EQ2 map or PS2 map but thought  ...hey we could just use this to sell a new game and call this ONE MAP game,early access.
    Actually it was exactly 1 year ago they were hiring to make a shooter game,so imo they are done with this development,laid everyone off.So less than a year actual development,a shooter,yeah my hunch a Battle Royale.
