Have you felt despondent at the apparent decline of the production of new, bold MMOs? According to Meridian 59 creator Brian “Psychochild” Green, these games are actually everywhere these days — they’re just disguising themselves due to the apparent stigma that comes with the MMO label.

Green looks at games such as Destiny, Game of War, Star Wars: Uprising, and Pokémon GO as examples of how MMO mechanics and features have spread outside of the strict walls of the traditional MMORPG.

“[Augmented reality] games will become big within the next few years; we’re already seeing [it],” he predicted. “They may not look like the MMOs you’re used to, but if you’re patient I’m sure the traditional MMO will probably make a comeback. And, hopefully a lot of the advancements made in other types of games help push MMOs forward a bit. And, when we have the big MMO renaissance in a few years, we’ll have a lot more options than cloning a creaky, aging game.”
