Such a shame, EQ was the Granddaddy of the MMORPG genre for many and was one of the main sources of inspiration behind WoW.

This team went to hell when Sony sold it off:

- Everquest Next cancelled;
- John Smedley (at the time president of SOE) leaves the company;
- developers laid off just after being acquired by the new company.

Oh yeah, that John Smedley guy... Star Wars Galaxies CU and NGE are still fresh in my mind. SOE's entire history revolves around lies, bait and switch tactics, and horrible decisions. These are the people that broke their own games to hide unfinished content.

The team was already a part of hell, they just finally turned to ash.

No big loss, another "Sword & Sorcery" game bites the dust. Haven't played one in over 10 years, the genre doesn't interest me anymore.

Sony should have made SOE part of SCE (PlayStation).
