This is not exactly related to DDO but it is related to Turbine. I have been reading about all of the available MMOs at www.massively.com and www.mmorpg.com and there are hardly any Post Apocalyptic MMOs to speak of. There is an MMO called Fallen Earth but it is apparently mediocre at best and wasn't developed by a major studio. Bethesda considered making Fallout into an MMO but this isn't going to happen from what I have read.
If Turbine acquired the licensing for the original Gamma World RPG and turned it into their latest MMO, this would fill a niche which apparently no one has really attempted to develop yet in the MMO market. If only part of the Fallout fan base played the Gamma World MMO, it would be a hit as Fallout was a huge seller. As DDO adds new world such as Planescape, Turbine could also start developing an MMO based on other Wizards of the Coast properties.
Does anyone have any information on this? Has a Gamma World or similar MMO ever been seriously considered for development?
