Everquest Next to be released on PS4?

Sony Online Entertainment announced in August the free-to-play MMO Everquest Next for PC, but will it ever be coming to Sony’s next-gen console PlayStation 4? SOE President John Smedley was speaking to GamerHub TV when he revealed how they could embrace the PS4 architecture for future games such as Everquest Next.

“We haven’t announced, technically, that we’re putting it on PlayStation 4, but it’s fair to say that we’re a Sony company so, you know, I say that with a smile on my face, I can’t wait to see it on the PS4.”

He also revealed during the interview why the PlayStation 4 is going to be a new market for MMO’s and free-to-play games.

“Free-to-play gaming is going to take a large role on the PlayStation 4. In fact, you’re going to see a number of free-to-play games at launch, and we think it’s going to be the biggest opportunity in free-to-play gaming right now.

“PS4 architecture lends itself well to MMOs, because we know we can use the stable platform - where we know everyone has the same hardware. That stable base is probably the biggest advantage that PS4 offers.”

Everquest Next would not be the first MMO to come to PS4. Currently DC Universe Online is available on the PS4 and Planetside 2 will be making its way to console next year.

No release date has been announced for Everquest Next.
