If you’ve been playing MMOs or PC games for a while, you probably remember SOE’s persistent world FPS PlanetSide. Despite the game currently having a small player base on one remaining server, it still has its fans including higher ups at SOE. So much so that a sequel is in development, and Smed confirmed to The Escapist that it’ll be launching in March:
“We have a very big launch coming in the month of March,” Smedley said. “It’s a big first person shooter franchise that we’re really happy with.”
“Could be,” Smedley said sheepishly. “We haven’t technically announced it.” He then told me that I could say that he “hinted” that the new Planetside was imminent, which translates to 99% of a confirmation. “This is the farthest I’ve gone [discussing it with the press] and the PR people are going to shoot me.”
“[Planetside Next] is the coolest god-damned game,” Smedley said. “I’m so in love with that game.”
So there you have it. Looks like the PlaneSide sequel is just a couple of months away.
