SOE: The Agency playable “within weeks”

Thursday, 1st April 2010 07:44 GMT By Johnny Cullen


Waiting a long time for SOE MMO The Agency? If new comments from president John Smedley are to be believed, your pain is almost done.

“You are going to see The Agency,” Smedley told GT in a video interview at GDC. “Here’s an interesting comment I’ll make: you’re going something around The Agency very soon, like weeks. And I mean playing within weeks.”

Beta, innit. But what about the full release?

“I don’t want to give an exact time frame when we’re ready to release it. We’re really proud with the progress its made and we’re happy with it internally, but we’re not going to put it out there until we feel like we’ve got something that’s better than everything else, so that’s going to take as long as it takes,” he further added.

The spy MMO was announced back in 2006 for Windows and PlayStation 3.

No date has been given for it yet other than this year.

Thanks, Gekidami.

    The concept of it looks really promising. Its not the WOW killer, but really something new in MMO universe.

    We need EVERQUEST III! SOE BRING US EVERQUEST III and kill WOW damn it. You have so much potential.

    From what i’ve seen it looks like something that would compare more to APB then most other MMO’s.
