    From the September announcement:

    "NantG Mobile will begin by developing and publishing mobile versions of both H1Z1 and Everquest, and will also work on new titles. In addition, it will take control of H1Z1's battle royale mode on PC"


    I looked for what games Nantwork's have made though - thinking: reskin of an existing game. Couldn't find any though. Mobile VR tech "solutions" so maybe it will be VR EQ  ..... on mobile!

    Something to use all the resources players created in Landmark for "EQN"?

    They may as well at this point. They've been backed into a corner it seems and need to fight.

    I really hope they are smarter than to release a battle arena of some sort. Competing with their own product, which is at the bottom of the BR totem pole already, would not make sense. I imagine an EQ BR would not attract enough EQ fans for it to be popular (And AoC is already doing this).

    My hope is that they built out an MMO (EQ theme or otherwise) with all those LM entities since it's closure. It's been long enough to do so if they figure out a way to make land masses bigger than the islands and designed a more robust combat system.

    Edit: And it would be a unique product, which in the online game market is huge.

    Starvault's reponse to criticism related to having a handful of players as the official "test" team for a supposed MMO: "We've just have another 10ish folk kind enough to voulenteer added tot the test team" (SIC) This explains much about the state of the game :-)

    Possible but the entities are there, it's whether DB thinks that it will make enough to be worth the trouble. I don't have high hopes but it's always good to imagine the entire spectrum of possibilities rather than a dreary existence of only imagining the worst.

    I'll take an announcement that they are selling the Everquest rights to a company that can do something great with it.

    OK.. I have given it some thought and here is what I came up with.  It's the HungeR games (note HR)

    It's a webcam game.  The Daybreak studio halls and offices are all wired.   There is an HR person who roams the halls with pink slips.   "Players" can influence the game by directing the HR person (for a fee of $5/min) or by sending "gifts" to the office workers.  $5 gets a false mirror, $10 erects a barrier in the hallway, $100 opens an escape door...

    There is also an obligatory cash shop where you can buy power-ups for both the HR and worker sides...  As well as some cosmetic items like "Don't slip me Bro" T-Shirts...

    It's almost like you'd be roleplaying a development team!

    Yes! But what has that to do with MMORPGs???


    Oh a redial button, marvellous idea. So it re casts the previous spell used? Great! And that big mallet on the left to crush your monitor when someone corpse camp you.

    This just in. They were going to make an announcement but changed their mind because it wasn't fun. But you can still look at a companion announcement and make suggestions on what they might have announced.

    EQ1, EQ2, SWG, SWTOR, GW, GW2 CoH, CoV, FFXI, WoW, CO, War,TSW and a slew of free trials and beta tests

    If I'm honest, I would be absurdly excited if they announced they were making The Agency again

    I wouldn't be surprised to see something along the lines of the "of Norrath" games:

    Legends of Norrath; Champions of Norrath.

    Perfect fits for mobile.
