McFarlane says 38 Studios’ Amalur MMO is coming this year

Wondering when the Reckoning team will be launching their much anticipated MMO?  It may be sooner than you think.

In a video interview with START that was picked up by Massively, the Spawn creator and 38 Studios art director said that the Amalur MMO, currently codenamed Project Copernicus, is coming “later in the year.”

This is great news for everyone who loved Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, but even better news for people who thought Reckoning felt like a single player MMO and were wondering where all the other people in town yelling in [trade] chat were hiding.

    They better release it before Guild Wars 2.

    No, you know he’s onto something, here. If you’re familiar with Internet trends and what’s trending at the moment, GW2 is way, way up there. It’s a lot due to how ArenaNet have so masterfully taken to the web 2.0 approach.

    They’re really good at the Internets, those guys. It also helps that their game is particularly incredible and like no other MMO before it. If the Amalur MMO is going to be like the Amalur RPG (generic music), then it’s not going to have a hope in hell.

    I mean, when you consider that Amalur is essentially more boring and less clever than Everquest, it does make you wonder what they could possibly be trying to achieve with an MMO. Great combat does not a great MMO make, because if that were true then something like Vindictus would have been the greatest MMO ever.

    So… yeah, I can see this one being stillborn.

    I liked Reckoning, I really did. But an MMO? Nah…not interested. Worst nightmare is if they turn Mass Effect nto an MMO aswell.

    WelI iam with #4 comment, as much as i love reckoning, i am not interested in a MMO, i do prefer a second game that improves on the things they didnt get so right on the first game.
