The speculation of this news was happening already, but today SOE boss John Smedley confirmed it.
EverQuest Next is now confirmed deal for PlayStation 4. In his latest Reddit AMA, Smedley answered questions about the recent MMOG closure announcements and the future of SOE.
Yes, we will absolutely be bringing EQN to the Playstation 4
EverQuest Next will be another in the growing line of free-to-play MMORPGs on the PS4.
Smedley also had a little something special for fans of the canceled Star Wars Galaxies MMOG. One of his first responses on Reddit may perk the brow of any Galaxies’ fans. Redditor Cranks0 asked:
If you could re-launch a shutdown title which one would you pick and what would you do differently this time?
Star Wars Galaxy, I would do everything differently. SWG PLAYERS – OUR NEXT GAME (not announced yet) IS DEDICATED TO YOU. Once we launch it… you can come home now.
