SOE Could Acquire Sigil Games

Sony Online Entertainment has confirmed to Next-Gen that the company is "in talks" with Vanguard: Saga of Heroes developer Sigil Games, although it's unclear if an acquisition will come from the discussions.

An official forum post by Vanguard: Saga of Heroes executive producer Brad McQuaid stated,

"SOE is in discussions with Sigil regarding the future of Vanguard and Sigil Games in Carlsbad. Talks are going well and first and foremost, our primary concern right now is what's best for Vanguard and its community. We want to ensure that this game and its community have a healthy future. The specifics that we work out over the coming days will all be with that single goal in mind."

A rep for SOE, which published Vanguard, confirmed that the forum post is legitimate.

SOE, as far as I know, has never made any indication of bring EverQuest to the PS3. If anything it would be EverQuest 2 that would go to PS3. Considering that SOE has 4 new mmo's in the works that will be crossplatform I think they have the MMO market covered as far as the PS3 is concerned.

Brad McQuaid started out with SOE as he originally made EQ. It's disappointing that money ran out before he could get the game where he wanted it before release. Hopefully they can work out a deal where the money will be there to make the game what it has the potential to be.

One things mmo companies need to realize is that releasing unfinished MMO's is no longer tolerated by gamers. From a recent interview with Scott Hartsman producer of EQ2 SOE has learned this leason and its all due to Blizzard releasing a very polished game right from the start with World of Warcraft.

Hopefully this means the 4 mmo's SOE has stated to be developing as crossplatform for the PS3 and PC will be very well polished before release.

After what they did to SWG, I have no faith in Vanguard. I feel terrible for them.
