It's no secret that Sony Online Entertainment
has been in more than a little hot water
in the wake of the recently announced region locks that were to be put in place following the studio's deal with ProSiebenSat.1
, but there may still be a silver lining on the horizon. SOE president John Smedley
tweeted earlier today that the studio has "come up with a plan to allow ALL players to play on any servers they want." While details are still to come, this should be incredibly welcome news for players of SOE titles who weren't looking forward to playing without their international friends.
Smedley promises us that there are "more details to follow," so stay tuned and hopefully we'll have some idea of what's in the works before too long.
