MMORPG Market Viability Discussion – WonderCon 2011

– Scott Hartsman, Exec Producer, Rift
– Dirk Metzger, VP Publishing, Zentia
– Nick Huggett, Customer Experience Manager, Runes of Magic

I am encouraged by the launch of Rift thus far – Trion has shown that it *is* possible to deliver a high-polish, content-rich game at launch and that the industry is learning from recent spectacular failures.
