The lights are on
Sony Online's Fan Faire is going on right now in Las Vegas, and the company just gave some morsels of info to EverQuest fans. The next title is currently being referred to as EverQuest Next, and it's going to be a reimagining of the MMO series.
Details are scarce, but it was mentioned that this entry will be developed with a focus on PvP and more engaging combat. Keep an eye on the site for any further information about this newly-announced MMO.

That's cool. I would love for EQ to be great again...at least for me, I know there are peeps out there that love the current EQ, so no hate spam. =P
Cool. Considering Everquest is one of the gran-daddies of it all, it's sweet to think of it being taken in a new direction.
I was kind of expecting Everquest to make a comeback within a year or two. Looking forward to screens...
I'm still a very big fan of EQ and EQ2, this could be very awesome in the world of Norrath. IMHO this game still has hands down the best community I've ever been a part of in the MMO market. Needless to say more EQ is always welcome.
EQ was amazing for the first several years, after Shadows of Luclin it went downhill and EQ2 is mostly crap. It will be interesting to see if they can bring it back to it's glory.
Perfect time too. I'm pretty sure all the changes that are going to happen to WoW after Cataclysm will make some people want to go back to Everquest.
This could be really cool. I've only ever played WoW, so it'd be nice to stretch my MMO legs and also sorta get a feel for WoW's progenitor series.
It's pretty amazing that EverQuest has been around for over a decade now, that's quite impressive.
all i hope is that Sony doesnt try and make a WoW clone to bank off of Blizzard's success
I was moderately interested in this until I saw the phrase "with a focus on PvP." My interest immediately flat-lined.
I don't think EQ could conquer wow.
does anyone still play EQ? I remember watching a friend play this game when it first came out... looked like someone vomited on the screen. Couldn't figure out why he payed a monthly fee for that.
Everquest II was lackluster and I never played the first. Unfortunate truth for SoE is that a lot of people do not trust them and they are going up against some other huge releases. I see SoE as just another Cryptic and this will probably fall by the wayside. Or it'll get big and then they'll introduce some new game enhancement and...
Well sounds cool, I have always wanted to give EQ a try. If ffxiv sucks then I will be down for this one.
I would love to see a new MMO from EQ. I enjoyed playing EQ1 during the first few expansions. World of Warcraft is now home to most of the people who play MMO's. It would be nice to see something other than WoW as an option to play that is up there in great gaming content.
