    2016 was a rough year. The long-standing MMOs we’ve come to love carried along quite well, but for new titles the selection was pretty limited. And so, as we’re fond to do at year’s end, we look forward to 2017 and the titles we expect to launch (even if in early access, which we pretty much consider launched but half-baked). In no particular order, we present our Most Wanted MMOs of 2017.

    There may be titles on this list that slip into 2018, some that we missed entirely because we don’t have an ETA (as is the case with imports like Lineage Eternal, for example). Still, we think what we have below is a solid list of the numerous MMOs coming in 2017. Some are “less MMO” than others, but we felt all of these games are worth mentioning to our audience. If even a handful of them turn out to be good games, we’re in for a solid year. Here’s to the next twelve months and the many hours of gaming goodness we hope it brings.
