GamerZines Preview | Three Hours With WildStar

GamerZines writes:

“MMOs have probably failed you,” admits Jeremy Gaffney, executive producer of WildStar, to a dimly-lit conference hall packed with games journalists.

This grandiose statement isn’t something you’d expect a developer of a forthcoming MMORPG to say, especially one who has been instrumental in bringing so many games to the online-playing masses including City of Heroes, Asheron’s Call and Tabula Rasa. Hell, the veteren of MMO development even co-founded the studio behind Lord of the Rings Online, Turbine Inc., so when he states that only 25% of players group up in MMOs, only 25% take part in PvP, and the more shocking statistic that 60% players prefer to play on their own, you can’t help but listen and think, maybe the MMORPG genre is a a bit broken.
