EverQuest may not be as genre-dominatingly popular as Wolrd of Warcraft, but the Sony Online developed series isn't something to be scoffed at in any way. With two games in the series under their belt the EverQuest devs have just slightly revealed what the third will be at Fan Faire 2010, the annual Sony Online event.
During SOE president John Smedley's community address he discussed some of EverQuest 2's upcoming features before revealing what SOE is calling EverQuest Next (working title). The screenshot above (yes, screenshot) is from said game, which is said to be more of a re-imagining of the series than a direct progression from EQ 1 and 2. Few other details were revealed as the team is very early in development on the game, but we do know that there will be a focus on Player vs. Player gameplay and a more engaging battle system.
I've made my lack of love for MMOs readily apparent almost every weekend, so I'll leave the commentary to you guys. Assume I've placed a generic question about beating World of Warcraft right here.
