Here is a pretty sweet list of the MMORPG games we can expect to play in 2013. Of course, it's still too soon to know a lot of details or to get news about next year's new releases but I always like to know what I can look forward to and what the MMO gaming industry is working on.
Some games that I listed have no links because they don't have official websites. I have a website dedicated to upcoming MMORPGs at bestfreemmorpg2013.com if you are interested in that kind of thing. Please let me know if there are any games I missed.
Titan - possibly? Titan is the codename or working title of the MMO that Blizzard is developing. Not many details are known about this but rumors abound.
BLESS - by Neowiz Games (Korea), BLESS is the working title of their upcoming MMORPG that has apprently been in development since 2009. It's hard to get info about this game but maybe our Korean members here can shed some light on it?
Dungeon Hero - by Eyasoft, another Korean game company. This looks like a fast-paced hack and slash dungeon crawler. The graphics are very stylized and cartoony.
EverQuest Next - yes, the next EQ game is already being made right now. This is reportedly set in a parralel dimension world of Norrath. Not sure why we need 3 different EQ games (the original Everquest, EQII and EQ Next in the future) but I certainly wish the devs well. It looks like a quality game that would be nice for those who have not yet played "classic" EQ.
Lineage Eternal: Twilight Resistance - this seems to be a sequel to the massively popular Lineage MMORPG. I never played original Lineage and there is not much info about this game yet but it is rumored to be due for release in 2013.
Pathfinder Online - this is a game that many MMO fans have been watching very closely. The devs have said that it will definitely be a hybrid sandbox/theme park-style MMO which has many gamers excited because of the sandbox features. I'm keeping my fingers crossed it will be good.

Survarium - an upcoming MMOFPS. Link: http://survarium.com/en/ Not much info on their website so I don't have much to say about it right now.
The Repopulation - another interesting game that is going to be sandbox. Check out their website at www.therepopulation.com (they have an alpha tester application form) and if you are a fan of sandbox MMOs you might start drooling at the thought of all those features. I know I'm excited.
Wildstar - the press releases make this game sound good. Website at http://www.wildstar-online.com/uk/ where you can already sign up for beta testing. They have a good trailer with what looks like a "bunny" race. Despite the cartoony look of the game it is supposedly very hardcore. Hmmm.
The Elder Scrolls Online - last but not the least, The Elder Scrolls Online MMORPG has just been announced. This is gonna be great. Imagine, Skyrim but with MMO features! That's gonna be so sweet. I know a lot of people have been talking about this in forums and online communities.
Warhammer 40,000: Dark Millennium MMO - this was going to be a big 2013 MMO release but sadly THQ has changed its plans so it will now be a single-player game. On the other hand, this could be good news if Dark Millennium is better as a solo playing experience.
That's it, that's the whole list. Not too many titles listed but its still early for a lot of announcements to be made about 2013.
