EverQuest Producer's Letter Promises More Content Than Ever Despite Layoffs

Posted Thu, Apr 07, 2011 by Martuk

Sony Online Entertainment took one on the chin last week when the developer was rocked by a massive layoff that put 205 people out of work, struck a death blow to The Agency and closed the doors on three of the company's studios. After an event like that, any player would wonder what kind of affect it could have on their favorite MMORPG, so this week EverQuest Producer Thom Terrazas released a new "Letter from the Producer" to ease concerns and promise that more content than ever is on the way for the game this year despite the layoffs. Oh, and you might want to have a chat with Bobo in the Planes of Knowledge too.

We have a bevy of past content that we enable each year, making tweaks and modifications to keep them fresh. We've received consistently good feedback on these efforts. However, we will also build upon it with new content all throughout the year. For example, we have added some new events that are running right now in conjunction with the spirit of April Fool's. I never thought these words would come out of my mouth, but "Go see Bobo in the Plane of Knowledge" to experience some shenanigans! Now, you may have seen one Bobo but you haven't seen them all - Gleemaker is his last name, in case you happen to know a lot of Bobos.
