    The following was posted on the EQ2 official forums. I thought it was interesting, but not all that surprising.

    Not sure when that was posted but one of the first responders there is dated May 1 so its not new news. However, we all knew it was coming. Just means that if I still want to play EQ, ill join Project1999. And hopefully someone will open up an EQ2 free server somewhere... and a good one at that!

    Pretty sure I said it somewhere else, but honestly I would be shocked if they stopped trying expansions. I can fully see them doing DLC-sized updates and trying to charge $35 for them. I mean hell, KA really wasn't that much bigger than Fallen Dynasty as far as actual content is concerned.

    We were talking about that article in May. I believe the consensus was it is a clever troll.

    Or a clever troll based around tiny nuggets of truth.

    The sad thing is, the game/company is in such a state that every single one of the things on the list is plausible.

    The best deceptions contain a seed of truth. And i agree, all are plausible.

    Of course, the post was removed and the rumors denied. SSDD

    Of course it was deleted. They're trying to hide the truth from us. Just like the US government doesn't want us to know:
    • man walking on the moon was staged in Hollywood
    • there was no holocaust
    • aliens landed at Roswell to give the US a technological advantage over the Soviet Union
    • aliens built the pyramids, but they must be different aliens than the ones at Roswell
    • etc.
    Rumors are just that until there is some evidence. An unknown poster on Reddit isn't evidence.

    That was my reaction also. The article stated that these were rumors, not facts. With regard to the continuing downward spiral of EQ2, many of us have speculated for a while now, particularly with the unpopularity of the last several expansions, that the next expansion will likely be its last. No one can deny the rapidly declining player numbers. The factual evidence is in plain sight.

    In b4 Fabled expansion, where they just re-release SF, DOV and AOM as 'Fabled' using TLE scaling.

    That's the most depressing thing I took away from this...it's (likely) just rumour and trolling, but the fact that there are enough kernels of truth/possibility speaks volumes.

    (It doesn't help that Kander has talked about PvP coming Soon, which feeds right into the "work has been happening on a Battle Royale version" bit. Like folks have been saying, just enough grains of truth to set the hook...)

    We covered this in May. EQ and EQ2 having their last expac are believable.
