Will we see a PlanetSide 2 in our future?

No roleplaying needed, point, aim, shoot.

The massively-multiplayer first-person shooter PlanetSide launched in 2003 but has never earned the numbers of more traditional MMOs like World of Warcraft.

Hurdles like not enough variants of battles, or the lacking of rpg-elements could be why PlanetSide seemed like a great idea but never really took off.

In a mass email sent last week to current and old PlanetSide subcribers, SOE is asking players to fill in a survey that would help SOE design the next generation version of this game. The email read, in part, “We plan to expand the PlanetSide universe with another game and we need your help with the design.” The original game will not be closed down.

Further evidence: The company registered the domain www.planetside2.com on September 21, 2009.

Now that it’s 2009, technical hurdles could be cleared, and a few tweaks in level design could eliminate some of the repetition of the original. Seems like the timing could be good for a change in the old level grinding MMO, so were anxious to see SOE’s shot a improving on this games previous shortcomings. We all need another monthy MMO charge right? /yuck
