SOE Working on 4th Unannounced Title

Posted Nov 16, 2009 by Michael Bitton

SOE Working on 4th Unannounced Title

In a recent Eurogamer interview with SOE President & CEO John Smedley, Smed revealed that the company has four titles in development for the PS3, three already announced (Free Realms, The Agency, DC Universe Online) and a fourth unannounced title.

For those wondering what SOE could possibly be working on for the fourth title, Smedley does offer some possible hints when discussing an example of an underrepresented genre in MMOG's, sports:

Seriously, though, look at a strong franchise like GTA or Killzone. They’re diverse, and permeate well beyond their target audience. We don’t have that in online gaming, and that’s what I believe games like The Agency and DCUO are doing.

I mean, do you see many sports MMOs? They’re out there, but frankly, most of them suck.

Of course, he could also be possibly referring to the PlanetSide sequel, which technically hasn't officially been announced.

Read the full interview for more, including some comments by the SOE Prez on the future and role of micro-transactions in MMOG's.
