What Happened to Free Realms?

5 Replies 1,544 Views Created 10-12-2010
If I remember correctly a ps3 version of Free Realms was due in summer of this year available through your xmb,I think it would have cut down the numbers of children on home and maybe a signal that Sony were thinking of making Home more adult orientated ie gambling games but Sony seem to have gone quiet over this project.Does anyone know if this will still be coming to the PS3 and if so when are we likely to see it?

Re: What Happened to Free Realms?

A Mac version was released last month. The game has been postponed a bunch of times since it was announced, but I remember reading a few months back that it was schedulled to the beginning of next year. But I can't find a confirmation anywhere.

Re: What Happened to Free Realms?

Wouldn't surprise me if the PS3 version is on permanent delay..

The PC betas were fun I guess but it's more family and female friendly.

Re: What Happened to Free Realms?

From: http://www.joystiq.com/2011/01/17/free-realms-ps3-due-sometime-early-feb-planetside-next-in-q1/

 

Sony Online Entertainment just did the impossible and launched an MMO on a console ... and it's got several more on the way in the near future. According to SOE president John Smedley, the long-awaited PS3 release of Free Realms has been submitted to Sony and will be out soon. "If I was a betting man," Smedley told Eurogamer, "I'm betting sometime early February it gets launched on the PS3 in SCEA. And probably, and this is a guess, sometime in March for SCEE. And that will use a free-to-play business model on PS3."

And that's not all! The Planetside sequel currently code-named Planetside Next is on the way to unspecified platforms. "We're looking at late first-quarter, early second-quarter [2011]," Smedley said. He even reaffirmed plans to release The Agency in the second half of 2011. "We're not giving out a specific date yet because we don't know it," he said. In addition to those, "There are [unannounced projects]," Smedley said. "Can't even disclose a number, but a lot."
