Besides that of the original "Planetside" game that is rather dated in itself. As "Planetside 2" matures I can see eventually the caretaker crew at Planetside original will be reshuffled. Besides that of the "Clone Wars: Adventures" for tweens as an age group. Now that Disney owns the Star Wars franchise they already cancelled the cartoon network Tv series of the "Clone Wars". The SOE game of the same universe is probably less on their popularity list right now.

SoE has/had another project based on indian themed Ramayan 3329 by Virgin comics.The artwork are/were quite impressive.

I guess what I meant was that they likely will cease expansions for EQ and maybe EQ2 and put all their fantasy mmo focus on the EQNext franchise.

They also carry a lot of games like DCUO that didn't work out.

Most of the layoffs are in customer service. I am guessing they will roll a lot of their support for these older or unsuccessful titles together.

I'm very interested in this, but am waiting to see how the combat turns out. Combat is the main reason I still play Tera; NW auto aimed for the nearest peep which annoyed me... though I guess I could go back to tab/click targetting for a good group of like minded players. You know, like TOG

So many interesting games releasing these days

They haven't really said if there would be Tab targetting. All they have said is you won't be able to simply spam through your skills. I got the impression from the way they worded it that there was a possibility of crosshair-like targetting. Or maybe a mixed system like GW2.

I am not sure if that is good or bad. I found Terra very awkward, not the crosshairs whiich I loved, but the way they handled movement.

EQNext is their next big thing, I doubt it will be affected at all. If anything, there may be more pressure to get it finished so it can start earning money.
Doubtful they already have one more piece of content lined up for this year for DCUO and have already confirmed support for more DLC next year. Regardless of what many think constitutes a "successful" mmorpg, nearly all SOE mmo's have been successful and made a lot of profit.

Heck SOE is the master of making money on these things, they won't stop supporting any of the games they make as long as they have paying customers willing to play the games.

Even with EQN coming out they won't stop support for EQ or EQ2 because the play-base is so fanatically loyal that the games are really just giant money printers.
