EverQuest PS3 Outed by Job Listing

September 5, 2011Written by Sebastian Moss

While DC Universe Online was Sony Online Entertainment’s fastest selling game ever, the EverQuest series has easily been SOE’s most successful franchise, with the massively multiplayer online role playing game become a critical and commercial hit that spawned a sequel as well as a spin-off PS2 series. The MMO EverQuests have always been only available on PC, but a new job listing hints that the franchise may be headed to PS3.

Over on Gamasutra, three separate job listings show the PS3 as the platform for EverQuest, with the adverts clearly stating that they are talking about EQ Next:

The next installment of the EverQuest franchise is SOE’s next great product that pushes design and technological barriers to expand the nature of the MMO genre. Set in a re-imagined version of the well-loved world of Norrath, EQ Next has its sights set on being as genre-breaking as “EverQuest” and “Planetside” were when SOE originally released them. Come join us as we build the next big thing.

With all three advertisements listing the PS3 as a platform, it seems unlikely that an error was made twice – but we’d still recommend taking this information with a grain of salt.

SOE showed that they are willing to bring MMOs to PS3 with DCUO and Free Realms, but, with The Agency canceled, they haven’t officially announced any further PS3 MMOs. Would you like to see EverQuest come to PS3? Let us know in the comments below.
