EverQuest II to get its own Cataclysm?

Sony: "We are looking at it closely."

Sony's EverQuest II MMO could soon be following World of Warcraft: Cataclysm's lead and hitting the reset button.

Sony Online boss John Smedley told Kotaku that the publisher had been considering a Cataclysm-esque reboot for some time.

"We are looking at it closely, we have been for a number of years now," he admitted. "Is it something we would do within the next expansion cycle? Probably not. But I think it's interesting."

World of Warcraft's Cataclysm expansion, out on 7th December, sees the MMO's universe get a game-changing makeover courtesy of chaos-happy giga-dragon, Deathwing the Destroyer.

"I think World of Warcraft is looking great," Smedley added. "I think it's going to bring a lot of people back into the game; they hit the reset button."

"The reason I respect Blizzard so much is that they don't make massive mistakes. They have the goods and they know it. So why not take a risk like that?"
