MMO Week in Review: Before the Dark Times (June 10, 2018)

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!

E3 is already shaping up to be interesting before it even begins: So far, we’ve heard more about both Anthem and EA’s new Jedi-centric Dark Times-era Star Wars game as well as posted up our wish list for Bethsoft’s Fallout 76.

Meanwhile, Valve abdicated all responsibility for what it profits from on Steam, CCP announced a mobile EVE Online game called Project Galaxy, Hi-Rez launched Realm Royale on Steam, Bless Online tried to recover after its messy launch, and we posted our post-launch impressions of Elder Scrolls Online Summerset.

Wasn’t ANet supposed to be at E3, what are they show casing?

https://www.e3expo.com/participating-companies lists ANet so they are there.

In the MOP article on the NCSoft earnings, a commenter said

ArenaNet aside from the next GW2 expansion and Living story missions they are working on a mobile game that they will present during E3 next month. There are also rumors about another project in the studio that noone knows any details yet

E3 is expensive so I certainly expect that if they are spending the money to attend, there will be a non-trivial announcement. But Google has not surfaced anything yet.

Thankfully, MOP has Minions on site, so once they get back and get some combination of sleep, Tamiflu and PEP we will read even more.
