September 2009 really is quite a month for new MMO releases, as Syp points out
. Players will be able to dive into the worlds of Aion
, Champions Online
, Dungeons & Dragons Online: Eberron Unlimited
(barring any unfortunate legal wrangling
), and Fallen Earth
. While we're at it, we might as well include CrimeCraft
, which launched a couple days ago too. Remember the days when you might see 1-2 new MMOs per year, staggered six months apart from each other? As the genre grows, it seems unlikely that we'll see those days again. Since we're huge MMO fans at Massively, we think that's quite awesome!
We're curious to know how you think the month of September will play out. Will this month be full of cut-throat competition with only one or two strong titles coming out on top? Are these MMOs even targeted to the same crowds? We actually feel each title is going after a slightly different audience, which may result in everyone being a winner. Do you plan on trying one of them? Two? All? None!? What's your gaming strategy coming up to September? Taking a quick look at Betawatch
tells us that there may be a couple more MMOs launching in 2009 as well.
