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!

While the MMO genre gets itself back in gear and puts the holiday haze behind it, we’ve been reporting back from Hi-Rez Expo 2018, where the studio has already announced a new game (sadly not an MMO, however) and a battle royale mode for one of its two MOBAs.
