We've all known about Turbine
's plans for a console MMO
for a few months now, but in a recent interview with videogaming247.com
, Lord of the Rings Online
's Executive Producer Jeffrey Steefel mentioned the fact that an announcement will be coming early next year on what type of "products" Turbine aims to release for the console.
"What we're doing now is the early development work and the work with the hardware manufacturers to understand where they're heading in the online space, where the connectivity between the console and internet is really headed,"
Steefel said in the interview. Since Turbine's recent work with Warner Bros
, the speculations have been across the board from a Harry Potter MMO
, to LotRO being ported to the console
or even an entirely new project. The biggest news of this interview though is the fact that he mentions "products", plural. Guess we'll just need to wait a few months to know for sure. In the meantime, we should be able to keep ourselves busy
