Sony Online Entertainment has revealed that it is working hard on adding Planetside 2‘s second continent to the game’s current beta, but fans may have to wait until after release to see the third one.
SOE’s John Smedley revealed the updated development timetable on the game’s official forums:
“We also are working hard on Esamir. It’s getting closer and closer to a finished state where we want you guys to play on it. It’s pretty awesome and very different gameplay wise than Indar.”
“After that Amerish will go back to being worked on. These continents are taking longer than we expected and it’s possible we end up launching with two and delivering the third shortly after launch. We’re working super hard but we have some resource bottlenecks. We also are going to see how the game plays with two continents before making any final decisions, so please do us a favor and don’t judge any of this before you play the game with two.”
So it appears that fans will have to make do with just two massive continents filled with things to do for a few weeks after launch, I’m sure they will manage.
