everquest next

Former EQ franchise director Dave Georgeson has -- naturally -- been being questioned by his fans about the recent cancellation of EverQuest Next. The developer originally headed up the project but was let go from Daybreak a while back.

When asked how he felt about the cancellation, he noted that he'd never had a project cancelled before and that "it feels weird." He also added that it has been a year since he was let go, so he'd already had time to mourn the project.

Another follower asked him if he believed he could have delivered the game to vision had SOE not been sold off and the team kept intact, to which he replied, "Yup. Absolutely."

He added that his response was, "based on a 27-year track record of never failing."

"All products shipped. All made money. Until now, I suppose."

Georgeson was also asked whether he knew about or predicted the game's cancellation. Being fairly diplomatic he responded that while he hasn't been part of the team since Feb 2015, cutbacks make projects hard to finish. He added, "I'll just say that and stop."
