Besides, let's all be very happy that "Unchained" wasn't in the cards.

Given that logic, what will the EverQuest game after "EverQuest Next" be called?  "EverQuest After"?

Actually, "EverQuest After" is better than "EverQuest Next."  And you can still derive logic from its meaning.  It comes After the other offerings in the series, right!?

 

I agree with the OP.  EQ "Next" is lame.  I would rather have just plain old "EverQuest 3"

 

I really hope it's just a working title!

Besides in 8 years from now when they are making Everquest 4, it wont be next any more.

 They could name the Everquest after next Everquest: Next Next

I still know what you did last Everquest

After Everquest: Next Next they can call it Everquest: Next One.

Haha, good one

Actually this one had it right...instead of calling it Everquest Next, call it:

After Everquest

Read the "38b.) ROBUST MARKETING - EverQuest 3 SHOULD NOT be named 'EverQuest Next'" section in the LOTPENSAB linked in my signature to see that it, sadly, is indeed the official game name... ;|

Wrong.

Product name can be >EXTREMELY< important in marketing to a wider aspect of the intended demographic.

What's a Kleenex?

What's EBay?

What's a Samsung?

Name of a product matters less when building a brand.  What matters more is the content of such product.  That's what will build brand recognition and name.  If EQ Next is the best game you've ever played, that name will mean a lot more than it does now.  And you will see it in a much better light.

LOL I think calling her a babe might be worse for your chances of "courting."

Well fortunately the average MMO gamer is close to 30, more than old enough to be comfortable with what they do and who they are even when talking to others. If not that's a pshycological issue on thier end and not SoE's problem.

Although other possibilities were there the official announcment signals that the ball is already rolling on box art and promotional posters, stands, etc. it's a done deal and if anything people will vaguely remember the name EverQuest even if they can't place why. It's a recognition tigger.

I disagree with calling it something without Everquest in it, you have a name recognition, you use it.  Next was just a place holder, but it had gotten its own recognition, so I imagine that is why they chose to roll with it.

 

I could care less if they call it Stinky Turd Dungeon, and you had to go ask people if they got STD yet :)  I care what the game is, not its name.

Planetside 2 was called Planetside:Next right up until SOE Live... maybe a bit before. 

I would not be shocked to hear that it is changed. Either way who cares what it is called. 

On a side note, I will never understand the people that feel the need to spam a bunch of potential names for things. Why?

 

Must be what the people with "Marketing" degrees do since they can never find a job in their field.

NGE, LOTRO, STO, KOTOR, Lego Star Wars > NGE 2 (SWTOR). SWG>ALL. Above hopefully subject to change.

6/27/13 4:21:00 PM#77

I do not have a problem with the name, as "Everquest: Revolution" or "Everquest: <insert EQ related name here>"  makes it sound like an expansion for Everquest 1. It is a more thoughtful than just Everquest 3

or they could call it Star Wars Galaxies 2   or maybe Everquest Galaxies considering it is meant to be a sandbox like SWG was

 Lots of money and research is put into names because it can actually affect sales significantly. Just like cover art and movie posters.

 

It is all about have something that will make someone want to look into it more to see how good that content is. Marketing can't be underestimated in how much it plays a role in success and the name is the first step.

It might seem simple, but it captures everything that you just said. It's "Next Level", revolutionary => Next, it's also, physically, the next version (Next == Next). Maybe it's the "Next" big thing. Maybe NEXT is an acronym. Plus, it will never need another name, since the fact that your products are continually being developed means that every release is the next one. No more need for branding.
