Sony Online: "The World Wasn't Ready For PlanetSide"


Posted July 14, 2011 - By Stephen Johnson

According to Matt Higby, Creative Director for PlanetSide 2, the reason MMOFPS PlanetSide wasn't as successful as it could have been when it launched back in 2003, is that the timing was off.

"When PlanetSide launched, and when we had our biggest numbers for PlanetSide, it was at a time that the world wasn't ready for it. Now we really feel that the world is ready for another MMOFPS, and we feel like we're poised to ddeliver a huge hit with PlanetSide 2."

Check out the rest of the interview with Higby and Sony Online Entertainment President John Smedley in the video below:
