MMO Week in Review: New MMORPGs on the horizon (June 11, 2017)

Were you too busy gaming this week to pay attention to MMO news? Get caught up every Sunday evening with Massively Overpowered’s Week in Review!

This week was a doozy for MMORPG players as two new games were announced for our genre: an as-yet-unnamed Magic: the Gathering MMO from Cryptic and PWE, and Fractured, a SpatialOS-powered MMOARPG sandbox without some of the more annoying tropes that usually attach themselves to sandboxes.

Meanwhile, Elder Scrolls Online Morrowind formally launched, Secret World Legends plotted a headstart and new beta wave, and Bless Online apparently gave up on its western ambitions.

Read on for the very best of this week’s MMO news and opinions.
