Blizzard & SOE Veterans creating the Perfect MMO with NCSoft foundings

Did you ever imagine Blizzard, SOE & NCSoft working together and creating the perfect MMO? Well your dream is almost real. Today a new company with veterans from Sony Online Entertainment and Blizzard was announced. San Diego based Molten Games announced that they are working on a free-to-play AAA online PC game with multimillion dollar budget from NCSoft.

The story is too old to be commented.

Interesting. But greater budget doesn't mean greater game.

Only NC have devs that create games I like like L2, Aion & Blade & Soul, not Blizz & not SOE, & NC help just by giving money so I don't have gr8 expectations for this project at all but anyway let's see what they can do.

Quite frankly the only stellar Ncsoft titles i can think of so far , are just publishing under their wing : the guild wars series .

I have mild hope for Blade and Soul given it's action feel , but that's it ... the rest was eye candy grind borefest be it in pve or pvp , and i'm afraid B&S would follow that path

Well we have different tastes I like MMORPGs with open PvP worlds & PvP-focused in general, only L2 was like this Aion is PvP-based but it doesn't have a seamless open world there is a lot of load screens in place & u cant kill any1 like in L2 only chars from the opponent faction & B&S also doesn't have a seamless world this game rely on load screens also every time u change an area but at least it's not faction based so PvP in this game must be clan-based with clan-wars something like that, anyway I still w8 for a modern Lineage 2 with action-based battle system same style open PvP/PK no restrictions no barriers freedom to kill any1 out of towns, clan wars, sieges etc I find a game that is going to be like this but we wont see it for at least 2 more years :/ here a trailer if any1 have the same tastes with me (L2 fans) & want to check it:

New companies tend to deliver some unique concepts and build great games but they lack the fundings to implement all the ideas.

With a team made by old Blizzard & SOE developers + the $$$ from NCSoft i don't think they will fail.

Add Open World PvP with some end game content to a grinding game and you have the perfect MMO.

On what you said Cloud, I don't think that Black Desert will be a huge hit. I am a Lineage2 fan also and i'm w8ing for years for something similar to be released but i am afraid i will die with that desire :)

The only one close to L2 i think it will be ArcheAge. Also i have some hopes for the NAT Games company to deliver something good.

Also rumors are that NCSoft is working on Aion 2 and Lineage 3 so who knows ...

What's the title even supposed to mean ? Blizzard on it's own got as much if not more funds than Ncsoft ...

I know i know , it's about ex blizzard staff working for Ncsoft here , but still it's poorly worded imo

I agree, very misleading title!
