 Multiplayer Mayhem

      Reported from Worlofwar.net that Blizzard has a new MMORPG in the works and is a totally new Intellectual Property.  Read for yourself.

   We have nothing to advertise for the new MMO because it’s a shell of a game thus far. We’ve already stated it’ll be a brand new franchise, which means the lore, art, and game play are being developed entirely from scratch. It’s an overwhelming process, but a process through which we excel. Our track record supports this. - - Blizzard Ent.

    Meanwhile at Camp Take-Two, 2k talks about The Rapture Multiplayer Experience.  “The fans asked for a multiplayer experience and we answered,” said Christoph Hartmann , reported by Businesswire. (IMHO) I'm sure this will get fans of the first Bioshock will be excited, I know I am.

    It seems that more of the larger game companies are taking stock in what their fanbase is saying, in a Gamasutra.com article EA discusses how it turned to the gaming community for input on their new sequel Army Of Two: The Fortieth Day. Electronic Arts CEO John Riccitiello believes that the game industry will bounce back in 2009. Stated in an interview that game retailers will "remain conservative," the CEO added that they are becoming "cautiously optimistic," - Gamasutra.com.

  (In My Humble Opinion): I'm sure many retailers are skittish about investing in another game title that might take up shelf space until it makes it's way into the clearance bin. I know that as a consumer I have my own shelf full of "why did I buy that"? Everyone does, however with the game companies aware of the strong voice (and opinion) that the community has, they will listen more to what we want. And I know that we have been looking for something new, which Blizzard currently has in the works. The future looks bright for gaming, it's been an exciting day so far.

Until tomorrow...

Have fun and play safe,

 2K did good, i hoped Infinity Wards would do the same, thank god.

Although in more traditional MMOs, hearing the players can be bad. Many fired developers have said that. Following the whines of players can result to more whining.

Anyway, as for Blizzard next mmo, it seems will be a sci fi. http://www.blizzardnewmmo.com/Game_Info
