SOE’s John Smedly drops hints about “PlanetSide Next”

By Nathan Grayson, Monday, 12 October 2009 02:12 GMT


SOE’s John Smedly recently set up shop on Livejournal, and – instead of using it to discuss ethics, high art, the curing of cancer or other typical Livejournal topics – he’s decided to focus on videogames. Imagine that.

His most recent entry makes multiple mentions of “PlanetSide Next,” which we’re assuming to be the name of, er, the next PlanetSide.

“To me, Planetside Next means we get a chance to take the essence of everything that was fun in Planetside and make it a lot better. Massive battles on a scale no other FPS will touch. None of this 64 player stuff. REALLY MASSIVE. With much better organization, and a tight focus on making sure the action is always going on, with awesome graphics,” he wrote.

Thanks, Joystiq.
