It's time to vote for another Player's Choice award, folks. This time, we've compiled a list of the MMOs that launched in 2016, and we want you all to pick which one is the best of the bunch.

Now key to this category? We didn't include Early Access releases (we'll save the PC awards on those until they're finally launched), and we didn't include games that already were cancelled. We did include Open Beta games, as those are as good as final. Lastly, we also didn't include MOBAs or battle games that we list - we tried to keep it exclusively to MMOs, though some will undoubtedly debate about HEX or The Division, or even Winning Putt being on the list. If that's the case don't vote for them!

Now, onto the voting! As always, we'll be watching for odd trends and scrubbing the data when voting closes next Thursday at 2pm ET - 11am PT. Make your selection, and let's see who comes out on top.
