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.
