SOE Lays Off and Cancels ‘The Agency’ MMO

In an effort to save money, Sony Online Entertainment has confirmed two horrible stories: The Agency has been cancelled and SOE has laid off 205 employees and shut down three studios.

The Agency was a massive multiplayer based on Unreal Engine 3 and was going to be set more like a massive shooter game instead of a typical SOE MMO such as EverQuest. While the project has been scrapped for good (at least at this point), Sony has confirmed they're working on EverQuest III and PlanetSide Next. Both are possible going to be setup for the PlayStation 3 and Windows format.
