EverQuest Next officially dead

Totally saw it coming though.. there was literally no word from the developers, and no updates on the game for the longest time.

I quit Landmark after Gategate. Figured EQN was toast since I had heard nothing. SOE, or whatever they are calling themselves now, totally porked the K9 with the H1Z1 nonsense and don't seem to have any damn clue what they are doing anymore. I knew the whole thing was f'k'd when they changed EQ Landmark to just Landmark. I had spent a ridiculous amount of time working on recreating the original Neriak with a combo of EQ, revamped neriak, EQ adventures, & EQII style arcitecture and then they basically give the finger to their entire hardcore fanbase by taking the 'EQ' off Landmark. Norath is dead... well except for p99 I guess.

I like Landmark. Would love to see it get more content. They did state that EQN wasn't a fun game to play. We will get a new EQ titel, but it won't be EQN. EQN just was a great titel on paper but in reality it just seemed to perfect to be true....as we have seen it. Landmark wasn't really meant to be an real EQ titel. I never expected it. I actually thought it would be a pretty mine craft, which it somewhat is.

We'll see for how long, though, now that they basically told all the EQ fans that there will be no "main game" they have basically been designing assets for all those months...

You cannot believe how hard im pissed at ghaybreak games. First they fire all the good staff, next they cancel EQN.
I hope i see them in Hell if I get promoted to pit fiend. So I can incflict them eternal pain.

Wow sad news to hear but I suppose it's good news in the long run. More BDO players! :P

It's a sad sad story, I had such high hopes... two years ago.

Thankfully BDO actually has a good chunk of the features I was looking forward to in EQN (minus the dynamic AI I knew was going to fall flat, and the Landmark destructible voxel world I am already burnt out on since they let that game stagnate). This games launch, and their finally announcing the game is dead, can't be a coincidence. They've been at this for possibly longer than BDO's entire development, and probably had squat to actually show for it beyond all the free assets they got from the Landmark community. Everything I did like about the action combat, is done a thousand times better here. It even has a parkour system. And the LOD doesn't look like trash if you are more than ten feet away from a building.

If, and it's a big if, they actually put some of the stuff they have supposedly been working on into Landmark, and update what is essential a dead alpha state game, it may turn out to be decent again. But I have zero actual hope of that. Sending it to "Launch" in it's current neglected state reeks of a desperate cash grab.

That happens when a good company (they practically invented the modern 3D MMO) get's ripped apart by money hungry publishers... I doubt Landmark will amount to anything more then it right now, either.

It also pretty much seams to be the death knell for the next step in the evolution of MMO's, as far as the west is concerned, at least...

You mean the players who designed stuff in landmark? 

I'm just going to wait and see. Hoping for the best.

I had my doubts about Next the moment they talked about it.  I am glad they put it out of it's misery.  Now I will only hope that Pantheon comes through.  Don't let me down again Brad.
