Sony is partnering with AI designers Storybricks on the next installment of EverQuest, EverQuest Next.
“After several months of working together with Sony Online, we can finally reveal that we are collaborating on EverQuest Next,” the post reads. “EQN is ‘the biggest sandbox ever designed’ and we are extremely happy to be working on the most innovative MMORPG under development.”
According to Storybricks, EverQuest Next takes place in a world parallel to Norrath.
Sony’s John Smedley has implied EverQuest Next will launch sometime this year. My money’s on 2014.
