At SOE Live
last year, fans were told that the EverQuest Next
moniker was only a working title for the upcoming sandbox sequel to the Norrathian franchise. Most believed that the true name would not be revealed until the annual convention this year. However, one fan took to Twitter and point blank asked Dave Georgeson
, the franchise director, about the impending title. And Georgeson answered! So the official title for EQ Next
is -- *drum roll* -- EverQuest Next
Yes folks, the working title has now been declared the official title. Surprise! OK, maybe it isn't really a surprise, but there were plenty of creative ideas floating around for possible names that could
have been used, not to mention ones I'm sure we haven't even heard yet. But for now, EQN
is set in stone... or is it? The game itself was totally blown up
and redesigned from scratch, so it stands to reason the name could follow suit.
Tell us, Massively readers, what name would you slap on the side of this sandbox? Give us your best ideas in the comments below.
