    Hey all,

    This has just been announced and the buzz is that it will be from the Fallout franchise.

    Now anyone who is in the know that those players are as big as they get in RPG and MMO land.

    I'M EXCITED !!!!!

    There have been rumours on and off about this for a while, but this is the most concrete one so far. My main concern is that they'd balls it up and create a EQ wrapped in a Fallout skin. Those names have some good credits though, Vogel and Walton both worked on UO and SWG so there is some hope that they'll make something good.

    Every year in Oct (maybe Nov) there is a gaming conference here in Austin. It's mainly dedicated to MMOG's. Last year Richard Garriott was one of the keynote speakers. Might have to keep a close eye on the upcoming one and see if there will be any sneak peeks.

    Bethesda hold the rights for Fallout 3. Bioware retained the MMO rights.

    Nothing on No Mutants Allowed yet so not convinced. If the Fallout Bible doesn't have this up then they have either missed it or it is to inconclusive to say....

    Edit: Also, I always thought Interplay had the licence for the MMO, not Bioware.....

    Bioware's new Austin studio is going to produce a MMO, but I don't think there's any evidence that it'll be Fallout related. It would make a great setting though.

    Well not sure if any of you guys and gals played Neocron, that was a fairly good Fallout type of MMORPG.

    No idea where the Fallout buzz is coming from but since BioWare is under an NDA and no one is talking, it is only buzz. Whatever it will be will be good though - they are pretty committed to roleplaying in their games and the production level is high. Of course they are getting pretty big now they joined with Pandemic - and Pandemic is the fallout from Black Isle who produced a game of the quality of Planescape:Torment,
    lets just hope the production cycle isn't the now normal 4+ years. . . .

    Im actually hoping they make an actual Dungeons & Dragons fantasy MMORPG. I didnt like Fallout for some reason...

    My dream come true would be the entirety of Faerun (Forgotten Realms) in an MMORPG. Now THAT would make me happy.

    However, ive read somewhere that its going to be sci-fi. That might just be another rumor though.

    In any case, whatever Bioware MMORPG is going to be, im probably going to play it for sure. They are an awesome company -- always make godly games.

    Im excited too!

    Forgotten Realms MMORPG

    You mean an online persistant version of Neverwinter Nights? Lots of people are clamoring for that. NWN has a huge following of people who run their own servers and support huge worlds that change everyday. In a sense NWN is already a persistant world for those with the dedication to create their own worlds.

    It also is an "actual Dungeons & Dragons" game that uses the Forgotten Realms rules and format.

    I purchased the Diamond edition recently and love it. I'm not sure I want to go into live worlds yet though, have to relearn so much.
