And the MassivelyOP employees choose the The most anticipated MMO for 2023 and beyond is…
Andrew Ross: Palia. Palia looks like landmark had a baby with her animal crossing. I know it won last year, but without gross monetization it still looks interesting, and the settings page makes the studio sound like a pretty nice place to work. After the last few years, they mean something to me.
Andy McAdams: Palia.
Briana Royce: soul frameRaph Koster’s MMO, nightingale, signpost. OK, nightingale and signpost aren’t really MMOs, and Raph Koster’s MMO doesn’t have a name, so that’s all I can do soul frame. To be honest, I liked the idea war frame more than I liked playing it, so I’m curious to see what DE can do if it starts with an MMO base instead of trying to add it later. I hope it’s one of the bigguns in a few years.
Carlo Lacsina: The Riot MMO.
Chris Neal: soul frame. While the word “expects” might do a lot of heavy lifting for me personally, I have to admit that I’m extremely intrigued and curious about what Digital Extremes will do with the fantasy genre, especially considering the absolute creative levels of heavy metal Madness does it with sci-fi. Color me extremely curious.
Colin Henry: soul frame. Generally, when I’m excited for an upcoming MMO, it’s a sign that it’s about to hit the ground running, so maybe I should just skip this one from now on, for the sake of the genre. That said, while it’s difficult to get excited about a game from a theatrical trailer, the idea of the war frame Developers who create a new game from scratch as an MMO from scratch, instead of hacking it after launch as they have done so far war frame, is interesting. The theatrical trailer mentioned above still has that weird and uniqueness about it war frame feel about it, and I’m excited to see how that translates from sci-fi to fantasy. And if it flops, I’m sorry, it’s entirely my fault for cursing it with my vote.
Eliot Lefebvre: I am absolutely to expect to be completely wrong to look forward to Blue lognot only because I’m the last person left to care, but I’ve steered my ship into dangerous reefs that I bet on Final Fantasy XIV years and so I continue to rely on the Longshot. soul frame is nevertheless an enticing prospect.
Justin Olivetti: Ashes of Creation, Palia, The Riot MMO. Right now, my gut feeling tells me that there are three titles that I really want: ashes of creation (to see if this team can meet their own expectations), Palia (because a cozy MMO sounds so perfect) and Riot’s MMO (which has the potential and budget to be the next big thing). Can I only choose one? That’s impossible!
MJ Guthrie: soul frame. I look forward to the most soul frame! war frame is the only shooter that completely hooked me and I was amazed by the talent and creativity of Digital Extremes. I’m curious how soul frame turns out, especially after the trailer.
Sam Cash: Harry Potter magic awakens.
Tyler Edwards: corepunk. My vote goes to the underdog option Corepunk. I’m not sure if it will ultimately be to my liking or if it will be released at all, but it has some nice ideas and the art style scratches mine Impressive Nostalgia.
