MMO Reporter Episode 14 – Prediction Show 2011
Big winners predictions:
Achloryn – DCUO, SWTOR
Candace – Rift, DCUO
Chris – Rift, LOTRO, GW2
Bill – SWTOR, WoW
Candace: LotRO, WoW (in spite of pervasive WoW-hate in grassroots media, it will still carry on)
Chris: WoW Cataclysm, DCUO
Achloryn: WoW – in spite of it being the only MMO I really play.
Bill: Firefall, APB, Rift
Candace – ToR, Allods (if they don’t fix the issues at hand)
Chris – DCUO maybe? Superhero games have a hard time keeping players.
Bill – Champions Online, Tera, GW2 won’t release in 2011 (but will still be awesome when it does release).
Achloryn – FFIV (I know it’s already circling the drain, but it’s really going to plummet in 2011. Square Enix won’t be able to buy their fans with name recognition only anymore). Rift? (Seems a LOT of hype… smacks a lot like Aion at the moment)
What will eat up most of your time in 2011?
Achloryn: WoW, possibly ToR
Chris: Rift/LOTRO/Guild Wars 2 (Pretty please, please, please, please, please, please, please)
What game won’t release on time in 2011?
Achloryn: Guild Wars 2
Candace: Guild Wars 2
Bill: Guild Wars 2
Chris: Guild Wars 2
Will Blizzard remain the 800lb gorilla in the room in 2011?
Candace: Yes only because the players/bloggers/writers will keep it there. Though I think the games releasing may give it a nudge or two down. Though no one will kill WoW but Blizz themselves (as with any game).
Achloryn: Yes. WoW won’t ever really “topple”, it’ll just get slowly chipped away at by other solid franchises.
Chris: GO TRION WORLDS!
Bill: Very likely. If subscriptions drop too much, they will get government bailouts (too big to fail)
Achloryn: TERA – Another game with LOTS of hype that…. I just don’t know.
Candace: DCUO and ToR
Bill: DCUO, Rift, LOTRO
Chris: WoW: Why do I keep going back?
What game could be announced that we haven’t heard about yet?
Bill: Torchlight MMO will be announced in 2011. Maybe Marvel announces a DCUO competitor?
Chris: Mechwarrior will be an MMO, Palladium Books Rifts MMO!
Candace: Torchlight MMO will be confirmed. Release will be announced. Assassins Creed MMO.
Achloryn: Tom Clancy’s team designs an MMO… Massive Rainbow Six?
