Franchise director Dave Georgeson for EverQuest has announced that the placeholder name of 'EverQuest Next' is actually what they're going to be calling the upcoming EverQuest MMO. If it's not broke...
It's rumoured that Sony Online's development of the MMO has been rebooted at least once. Little in the way of specific details have been blabbed by Sony, and it's possible they've pushed it to PS4.
They're not even teasing us with a fancy new EverQuest Next logo yet, but it will "probably at the debut," or maybe slightly sooner, Georgeson.
