Check out these 5 interesting MMOs, that you've never heard of.... Most of these will be released in mid 2010.
Continent of the 9th looks pretty good.
Dragon Next looks insanely fun. ^^
Mabinogi Heroes looks like a very cool game.Interesting to know there is an X360 port rumor.
These things are a dime a dozen these days. You really need to do your research before signing on to one.
I highly doubt any of these will last. I don't think an mmorpg has survived in america other than WoW ... well, except for LOTRO.. Final Fantasy... and some other free ones I spose
EverQuest, EverQuest 2, City of Heroes/Villains, Lineage 2, Lord of the Rings Online, Dungeons & Dragons Online, Eve Online, Warhammer Online, Age of Conan, Final Fantasy XI, Anarchy Online, Dark Age of Camelot, Star Wars Galaxies. You only need about 35k subscribers to make a profit on MMOs. The majority of those above have much more than that and are considered successes in the U.S. market.
City of Heroes 4+ years Everquest 10+ Everquest 2 (just as long as WoW) Anarchy Online.. 5-6 years+ All depends on whether or not the game aspires to be a WoW-Killer.. in which case, it will fail. Other games that try to find a comfortable niche to exist in, work out pretty good..
Continent of the Ninth looks damn good. Also looks like a good game that could work on consoles as well. I just hope they support SLi/Crossfire. Tera Online is a super close second too man this is exciting.
Remember a few weeks ago there was an article on N4G that rumored that Microsoft was looking for people experienced in MMOs and the number 300,000 was mentioned. I assume Microsoft's next big plan might be to make a large MMO for the 360. Microsoft is always looking for the next moneymaker and I'm sure the MMO genre looks profitable right now. The only thing that interests me about that is maybe MS will make LIVE free if they can get their money from elsewhere.
