President of Sony Online Entertainment, John Smedley, has announced EverQuest Next‘s launch on the PlayStation 4.
In a recent Reddit “Ask Me Almost Anything” Q&A today, he confirmed rumors of the next iteration of the popular PC MMORPG being in development for the PlayStation 4.
“Yes,” he said. “We will absolutely be bringing EQN to the PlayStation 4!”
Smedley previously hinted that EverQuest Next on the PS4 would be a possibility, though nothing was set in stone until today.
Additionally, for those who have been patiently awaiting PlanetSide 2‘s for the PS4, you’ll be happy to know that the team has narrowed the game’s launch window to release within the first half of this year.
“First half of this year is what we’re shooting for,” Smedly confirmed. “It’s taking time to do this right but coming along great.”
This is certainly great news as PlanetSide 2 is a solid shooter that has already been well received by its PC community. EverQuest Next looks absolutely phenomenal for a free-to-play MMO and will also make be a fantastic addition to the PS4’s line up.
