PlanetSide 2 “Aiming to be Massively Multiplayer Halo for PS4” – SOE Boss

Sigh.

PlanetSide 2 has seen a very strong reception on the PC despite being so long in development. The online shooter, developer by Sony Online Entertainment, will be releasing for the PlayStation 4 in 2014, but according to boss John Smedley in conversation with IGN. “We believe that Planetside 2 is going to be the massively multiplayer Halo for PlayStation 4, so we want to bring a completely new kind of gameplay to a completely new audience.”

That’s a rather lofty claim, even if PlanetSide 2 really is just aiming to be Halo but just as an MMO. Will this attract players from the Xbox fanbase to check out the PS4? We wonder.

Regardless, Smedley revealed that PC players of PlanetSide 2 will likely stick to their own platform. For those who want to switch, Sony still hasn’t confirmed whether you’ll be able to transfer your character from PC to PS4. We’ll see how the situation develops when PlanetSide 2 launches next year. Meanwhile, the PS4 is set to launch this Friday in North America.
