EA recently hired Andy Belford (Second Skin movie, Community Mgr for WAR and CoH), as the Global Community Manager for a new, yet to be announced project. Considering Andy's background it's almost certainly an MMO.

 

Quote from Andy's Linkedin page regarding his new position:

"Leading the Community team for an exciting new project! More information to come soon™..."

New project .. maybe it's a reference to the "Super Secret Space Project" freeroam space for SWTOR?

 

EA doing MMORPG's has been rather disasterous, and they are probably wondering how to recoup lost time and money from SWTOR rather than trying to dig another hole somewhere else.

 

EA just lacks the skill, motivation, and innovation to be successful as anything more than a hype publishing company.  /shrug

 

new project =/= new game

Pretty much.  And the old Mythic team, by extension.

It wasn't EA that fooled them it was Bioware, they chose to get into bed with EA. It was also Bioware who chose the hero engine long before EA were in the picture.

With EA attached, I think I'll just stay away as far as possible.

There is no good or evil, only power - and those too weak to seek it.

Madness! I would trust them to run a piss up in a brewery!

EA proved how dogshit they are at predicting what the community wants in their games.

"Trololol SWTOR failed because it wasn't free to play! Trolololol now we're going to add the worst pay to win garbage ever!"

I thought the same thing haha!

 

On to the subject of the topic, EA has proven time after time in their MMO ventures that they are incable of making an MMO that the major populaton enjoys. I really don't see anyone caring for this project unless as someone else said, it's a Mass Effect MMO.

I would play it if they get rid of the world, and make the game into an online RPG instead. TOR is a pretty good game without the MMO parts, and if the combat is improved.

Truth. Mass Effect 2 and 3 were hot garbage. When the MMO comes, and we all know it will, I'll die a little inside that day.

Not even a Mass Effect MMO would get me interested (plus ME is dead to me anyway) in anything EA has to offer at this point. As far as I'm concerned they simply don't exist.

I'll stick with EVE and WoW, TYVM.

Big companies can sell there game off IP alone and not put any real effort into the design or mechanics (SWTOR, WAR, AoC etc.) 

I thought that was apparent. 

"In the immediate future, we have this one, and then we’ve got another one that is actually going to be – so we’re going to have, what we want to do, is in January, what we’re targeting to do, this may or may not happen, so you can’t hold me to it. But what we’re targeting to do, is have a fun anniversary to the Ilum shenanigans that happened. An alien race might invade, and they might crash into Ilum and there might be some new activities that happen on the planet." ~Gabe Amatangelo

 I actually got a few months of fun out of all three mmo's you listed and would pre-purchase a Mass Effect mmo if I was gonna get the same degree of enjoyment.
