MMOs Panel Report

MMOs Panel Report

Ever wonder how big MMOs are going to get by 2012? Who about what MMO company is also working on Facebook games? At the MMOs panel at this year's Comic Con, our own Carolyn Koh found those answers and more.

The MMO Panel at Comic Con this year was chaired by George Chronis of DFC Intelligence, a video games and entertainment research and analyst firm who put the members of the expert panel through their paces. On the panel were Min Kim, director of Game Operations for Nexon America, Hendrik Strandberg, Executive Director of Product Development for Turbine, John Smedley, President of Sony Online Entertainment, Leo Olebe, Marketing Director for Bioware, and Dave Brevik, Studio Director of Gazillion.

George kicked things off with a recital of statistics drawn from their research, one of which was the projection that between 2008 and 2014, the number of players of online games would increase by 45% to about 516 million players. The questions to the panel revolved around the challenges they faced, the changes they hope to wrought and the changes the industry was going through as the MMO genre begins to mature.
