Really, could you come up with a clearer expression of an MMO business plan?
Make them stay forever!
EQ2 Wire, ever on top of things, spotted the premature release of the EQII Producer’s Letter onto the forums which announced the expansion.
And, as Brasse put it:
It seems to contain the usual stuff. More levels, more quests, more loot, more this, more that… more more more of the same old thing. Again, is it eternity, or does it just seems like it? I suppose I will have to wait for more details (more!) to see if there really is anything “new” amongst the “new.”
There is supposed to be some more big news from SOE today and tomorrow… Smed was actually pretty dramatic about that point last night.
But for now, we have word that there is an expansion coming for EQII… and a hint somewhere that Planetside will be going free at some point.
