Forum Spotlight: The Future of MMOs

Posted Nov 08, 2007 by Jon Wood

Forum Spotlight: The Future of MMOs

This week in her Forum Spotlight column, Community Manager Laura Genender takes a look at a thread that suggests that MMOs are dying.

On the MMORPG.com forums, we often take time to discuss the industry’s immediate future: Will Age of Conan be good? Will Marvel Universe or DC Online win the hero show-down? Is WAR a WoW clone? What’s Bioware’s new title? This week on the forums, though, user outlaw101 turns his eyes further into the MMO future: what’s going to become of our industry?

“MMO gaming has been around for nearly 15 years now, commercially,” states outlaw101. “My question is, do you think it has a future. The MMO industry makes up under 5% of entertainment online, with the PC singleplayer and Multiplayer games in their prime, where will MMO games be in 15 years? 30 years? dead? alive?”

Outlaw101 himself doesn’t think the industry will be around long. “The MMO industry wont make it, with the amount of linear titles we have out today people are getting put off.”
