When asked about console MMOs in a recent interview, Blizzard's Rob Pardo revealed that Blizzard had acted as a consultant for a Microsoft project in development. But what could it be?
What do Blizzard know about MMORPGs? I mean really.
Considering that among then many things Halo was considered as was an MMO...
I'll jizz for a Halo MMO ... Sean Reno, that was sarcasm, it wasn't that hard to detect ... chill broski
"What do Blizzard know about MMORPGs? I mean really." Just in case that wasn't sarcasm and you are a hermit. Blizzard developed and continues to support and profit from World of Warcraft. With over 11 MILLION players online. At 15 dollars a month for the subscription, that's about 1.5 billion dollars a year not including the initial purchase or expansion packs. You can pick your jaw up off the floor now.
The sky is no Blue. Care to explain to me why it is? I have been playing wow since closed beta. I have a lvl 80 Uldar 25 man Raiding Paladin, 2 other parked lvl 70 paladins a lvl 80 DK a lvl 72 Lock and I run my own 10 man raids for raiding beginners, trust me, it was sarcasm.
Sorry if it sounded like I was flying off the handle there. I just felt the need to inform if in fact (though not likely) someone did not know the almighty that is WOW. I'm pretty sure aboriginals hiding in a bush somewhere in Indonesia have accounts on WOW. Peace.
I wonder if this is what Halo: Reach is all about? Theres nothing solid about the game, just some rumours that it's a sort of sandbox title. You know, a bit like an MMO is? Or it could be something entirely different. I actually hope this is the case, because from what we know, Halo Reach is a major project (Apparently it was in development before ODST was) and an MMO would also be a major project. Having two major projects would be pretty sweet. We also know that Microsoft is releasing a racing game for free, but with microtransactions for new cars, tracks, skins, etc. That's a pretty popular model for Korean MMO games and could be an indication that Microsoft is testing the waters with Microtransactions, which could feasibly end up in a future MMO title. So basically, if this MMO thing is real and it's free (or at least free for Gold subscribers), it could finally almost justify Live's cost. Maybe. Or it could be all BS.
I'm thinking large scale battles are more then likely considering how scalable the halo multiplayer already is to begin with. And with the inclusion of the beta in odst, it would provide a very, very large test and focus group, that could run for a very extended period, so I could fathom Reach being an MMO. However the long development time could be due to bungie building a new engine to the game, which is also rumored.
halo reach i supposed to be an fps but they could be working on an mmofps sorta like MAG
It's not an MMO game, but mmo tech. IE. Donnybrook. http://research.microsoft.c... http://www.youtube.com/watc... Although what MS is likely showing is a much larger progression of that. The most interesting thing about donybrook is the fact it's p2p which would eliminate the main source of an MMO's cash sink, the servers.
Considering Halo:Reach is supposed to be somthing diff. and also Bungie said that the MP in Halo:Reach will be alot diff. from all previous halo games i bet you Halo:Reach could possibly be microsofts answer to MAG....but idk im just throwing crazy ideas out there, cause im pumped for this game, to see what there gonna do. But you never know =)
Four Words...True Fantasy Live Online. Come on Microsoft! Make up with Level-5 and make the people happy!
That will never happen. The reason it got canned was because Level 5 got pissed at Microsoft. Damn, you remind me of the memories of being hyped for that game. Me and my friends had made a guild for it in advance.
didnt level 5 use microsofts money to develope ps2 games? sure i heard something like that a while ago
360 + Live + MMO = yes please.
I'm telling you.....the next Xbox (2012-13) will launch with a Halo MMO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
That would be devastating for Sony and Nintendo. Halo MMO launch title? Game over there.
Free to play avatar based MMO for gold subscribers supported by micro-transactions. I can see it coming E3 2010
Xbox 360 + Blizzard + Marvel Come on guys make it happen....... Maybe keep the cost down too....no subscription charges :)
Call Of Duty MW : MMO = Awesomeness. But of course Halo being first in line = awesomness for lots of little kids and their parents money.
Mayo + Rolaids + Hemroids = epic fail live + subscription = expensive
is the only thing microsoft can do is halo this name is going to be dead by the end of this gen
