Brad McQuaid Speaks Out on the Future of Vanguard

Vanguard: Saga of Heroes

Over at the Official Vanguard Forums, Brad McQuaid, AKA Aradune, has made a lengthy post discussing the present and future state of Vanguard, SOE, and Sigil Games. While it’s a long winded post, here’s a few highlights. “SOE is in discussions with Sigil regarding the future of Vanguard and Sigil Games in Carlsbad. Talks are going well and first and foremost, our primary concern right now is what’s best for Vanguard and its community. We want to ensure that this game and its community have a healthy future. The specifics that we work out over the coming days will all be with that single goal in mind. What does that mean? It means that right now Vanguard is doing decently but not as well as we hoped.” More important to players, McQuaid goes on to say, “So the bottom line is that SOE is going to be getting more involved with Sigil and Vanguard – our relationship is going to become even tighter – much tighter. At this point I can’t say much more than that.” While McQuaid doesn’t elaborate on how the relationship will be “tighter,” it sounds likely that SOE will be taking a much more active hand in the future development and promotion of Vanguard. Whether or not that turns out to be a good thing remains to be seen

NO! no no no no no nnnnno! That is too bad. SOE will booger it up and make it just another “SEO game”. Let’s hope the new Blizzard “Next Gen” MMO is on par to be something as fun as WoW was.
