What's in a name?
The very original folks over at SOE have announced the official title of EverQuest Next. EverQuest Next was simply meant to be the working title for the next installment of the EQ saga, but Dave Georgeson, the Franchise Director, reached out on Twitter singing another tune.
"So the official title for EQ Next is -- *drum roll* -- EverQuest Next!" read the Tweet.
EverQuest Next does roll off the tongue quite nicely, but considering adding "Next" is what a lot of developers use as working titles for sequels, it's kind of strange for SOE to go this route. Maybe it was because they didn't want to go with EverQuest 3 because it won't follow the same story as the other two?
Whether you like the name or not, more details on EQ Next will be announced at SOE Live in Las Vegas on August 2.
