As I mentioned in the MMO Update a few weeks ago, the PlanetSide community has been eagerly awaiting a letter from the game’s new producer. Yesterday, Planetside-Universe was lucky enough to get an early copy of the letter. In it the new producer, Andrew Sites, introduced himself to the community while reassuring them that the game was in good hands.
In addition, he promised that the community “can expect to receive a lot more detail about what we have in-store for PSNext.” We certainly hope that they are fairly liberal in sharing information about the MMOFPS – especially considering we currently have a very limited view of the game.
One early worry? SOE seems set on presenting their information exclusively to the community. While this might sound good on paper, the original PlanetSide struggled due to very few people knowing about the game, so it seems counterproductive to only brag about your new game to people that are already excited about it.
Good move, bad move? Let us know what you think in the comments.
