I'd only be interested in steampunk if the setting was Arcanum, and cyberpunk if it was Shadowrun. The two genres generally annoy me in various ways, but Arcanum and Shadowrun have special places in my heart for nostalgic reasons.

The Secret World and World of Darkness are textbook alternate realities, aren't they?

Anyway, the only thing I didn't see on the list which I've been interested in seeing for a long time is Abrahamic mythology. There are very few mythological settings to begin with, and whenever we do see them, they tend to use Greek mythology, Norse mythology, or Chinese mythology. RPGs have seen success with Abrahamic mythology, such as games like In Nomine, more loosely in the old World of Darkness, and much more loosely in games like Diablo. MMOs, though, seem to avoid it altogether—presumably because, unlike Zeus, Yahweh still has fans so hardcore that they might be called religious. Yet still....

let's see:

Steampunk - Torchlight mmorpg.

Alternate Reality - Secret World.

as for what would be great and refreshing to see? A Mmorpg based on Dresden Files universe.

 Unless Torchlight the MMO is going to be a completely different setting then Torchlight the dungeon crawler, I don't consider the game to be a steampunk setting at all.

We’ve seen a lot of space-themed MMOs

Really? I'll admit there have been some, but how many good ones are there? And you're talking space, not even SciFi. Apart form Eve, I can't think of one that has any mass appeal. Jumpgate?

I for one would love to see a good SciFi one not based on a movie franchise. Actually, Anarchy Online 2 would be great.

To the caterpillar it is the end of the world. To the master, it is a butterfly.

how about ancient mesopotamia  around the time the aliens visited and created man as a slave race to help mine gold for their failing atmosphere.

To the caterpillar it is the end of the world, to the master, it is a butterfly.

Would be cool, but as you mentioned, unlikely to happen due to its sensitive nature and the politically correct world we live in today.

Never attribute to stupidity that which can be adequately explained by malice.

Important facts:
1. Free to Play games are poorly made.
2. Casuals are not all idiots, but idiots call themselves casuals.
3. Great solo and group content are not mutually exclusive, but they suffer when one is shoved into the mold of the other. The same is true of PvP and PvE.
4. Community is more important than you think.

Prehistoric,1910 to 1940 Gangsters, or Old West settings would be great, but i like Alternative history setting.

i may be a little biased though because i been reading 2 series of books released by Bean publisheing 1632 and 1812

How about a world where the US stayed "neutral" during WW2 ?  If Japan had not attacked Pearl Harbor would the US be a super power today.

Well Warhammer 40,000: Dark Millennium Online is going to have that Steampunk/Cyberpunk type of feel, that's one reason I bookmarked it as a potential.

I think you guys are posting a lot of epic, character driven settings when people throw out names like Krynn, WoT, bladerunner..  There are fun to read, but ultimately boring to play in.

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over while expecting different results.

Bladerunner would be cool.  A real star trek game would be cool.   Stargate would be nice if they could find somebody who' snot firesky to work on it.

I'm glad you mentioned Naomi Novik Tremere books because that's an AWESOME alternate reality book.  One I'd whole heartedly like to see done.  (Mostly as a single player game but an MMO world could be interesting. :) )

Other than that I pretty much agree with the entire list.  Esepcially Steampunk. 

Current Game: Asssasins Creed 2(PS3, Gamer Tag: Happy_Hubby)
Current MMO: World of Warcraft and World of Tanks
Former Subscribed MMO: Star Trek Online, Aion, WoW, Guild Wars, Eve Online, DAoC, City of Heroes, Shattered Galaxy, 10six.
Tried: Too many to list

there are several i would really like explored

first is a totally unknown unexplored planet  that the players start out knowing  effectivly nothing about they have to learn discover everything but keep it real stay away from the "mmo"  feel  go for idealized reality  colinizing a planet  a game called SEED had a great concept but  but the game was trash  they started out on a crashed coliny ship  but you knew nothing of the worled even if it had a breathable atmosphere  initial goals were to repair the ship  lifesupport  food water ect make it liveable  see what resources were on hand or what could be crafted,, after all that then find out what kind of planet you landed on and make the best of it   there could be aliens  or other colinizers


an EVE like theme that is casual player friendly   that you can trade and explore mine  and yes there are places to fight  im thinking star ship troopers like assaults where players can run fighters bombers haulers  even carriers  but its more about the dramatics of the fight not  ganking kills (this means more wounded ships not dead ships and supplys like AB fuel and air  food water  this game is at the top of my list as i was hoping star trek online would be the game for EVE REFUGEES to call home  but they gimped it to yet another lame franchinse leach game.

another one is spies and agents where you are  in different factons  and can do spy  or  espionage  or  assisnation  or even combat raids on other factons  with normal and exotic weapons   hacking  lock picking  pickpocketing  bombs   and an orginazitation doesnt have to be defined by a country boarders  it could be terrorists/freedom fighters using gurella warfare tactics against a major super power that way even small orgainzations have a nitch.

aftermaths  post nuke ,, or or WW3+5  is fun also  the tail end of a world war where you are still at war but have to rely on your skills and scrounging ability to continue the struggle  TWILIGHT 2000 type world 

moden military war  that is long and persistant  with different theaters  desert arctic  temperate  and but the game isnt  narrowed to just  a squad  but includes   many areas  of support  transports artillery medical  supply   dont just make it another BANG YOUR DEAD game in joint operations (modern combat jungle islands) one of the funest things I liked to do was transport troops to an LZ via helo  3 second touch down, players jump off  and away I went

make a world, not a game, we dont want another game.

I'd throw in my vote for the steampunk or cyberpunk settings. Although, now that someone mentioned the Dresden files, I have to agree that would be fantastic.
