Rumor: Terminator MMO?

terminatorOut of all the lucrative sci-fi properties floating out in license land, I’m surprised that nobody’s been able to make a decent Terminator game. I mean, the series has it all. Time travel, killer robots, bad ass characters. There’s really a lot of potential there, and so far, nobody’s delivered.

However, there’s always hope. In fact, Halcyon games, part of the Halcyon Company, which owns the rights to the Terminator franchise, has been hinting about discussions for a possible Terminator MMO. Granted, these guys are also making a Terminator: Salvation game which doesn’t look all that great, but even still, the idea is definitely a cool one.

The Terminator franchise would be the perfect fit for an MMO, in my opinion. Imagine if instead of other continents (a la WOW), the game sported different time periods to visit. Playing as the human resistance against the machines could make for some great gameplay as well.

So what do you guys think? Crazy, or cool?

  1. That should be crazy ‘and’ cool. It’s an awesome idea. It will be a good game for blowing stuff around, which I love to do…

    Hope some company reads this post and picks it up.

  2. This could be really neat, but the MMO market is so locked up right now, it’ll probably go straight to the roadside, like Tabula Rasa.

  3. They could make this really interesting. Think back to…the first movie? Where they have to like, check and see if its a human or a terminator trying to get into their base. Stuff like that should be implemented into the game. I thin they could do a good job with it if they really think it through and try and be innovative.

    The one thing I will hope is that it doesn’t just flop. It seems like after WoWs success everyone wants their own piece of the MMO world.

  4. I never really thought about it before, but this would actually be a pretty cool idea. (Amhad voice) AWESOME!
