Everyone knows how many World of Warcraft
clones there are out there, right? "This is just WoW
in space." "This is just WoW
with tanks." "This is just WoW
covered in chocolate." Just after WoW
took the MMO world by storm, every gaming company decided that the WoW
formula was the only way to make money in the industry. Now, however, we have started to see a move in other directions. But which innovation will come out on top? Some developers have really started to go back to the basics of sandbox gameplay -- like Wurm Online
or Minecraft --
or have taken a console approach, like Global Agenda
or DC Universe Online
So what do you think will be the next big innovation in MMOs? Will worlds get wider with more depth like EVE
times 10? Perhaps they will be come more character-driven and linear like Star Wars: The Old Republic
? It's possible that a first-person shooter will be the next MMO wave, isn't it? What do you think developers will make the next big thing? What do you want it to be?
