Survey hints at PlanetSide 2 coming

We’re all pretty excited for MAG these days, but to tell the truth the ability to fight large scale wars with hundreds of people has been around for a while. There are plenty of differences/improvements/apple to oranges comparisons, yes, but if you had a knackering to go to war on a major scale the MMOFPS has been answering that call for years now and all you had to do was turn on your computer to game. I know, it’s tough some times. However, if you are an MMOFPSer then you know of PlanetSide, which is considered the first game to truly bring the genre to the public’s mind. It had its flaws (and evidently still does), but it’s still up and running as we speak and still played by a decent amount of people.

If you are/were one of those people then you’ll be happy to hear that SOE appears to be working on another game in the PlanetSide series. It’s been six years since the original launched, and SOE has just sent out a survey to players of the game asking them to “play a critical role into helping guide the development and direction of the next hit Massively Multiplayer Online First Person Shooter.” Anyone who played the game got any good suggestions? I haven’t, but off the bat I’d say it needs more Hammer (football season is here, so Hammer Day comes early).
