Vampire: The Masquerade MMO

I normally don't care much about online role-playing games, because there just doesn't seem to be all that much role-playing in them, but the news coming out of New Orleans seems a bit noteworthy.

It seems that the folks at White Wolf, who have been pointing in the direction of giving up print RPGs altogether, have announced that early 2012 will see the debut of a Vampire: The Masquerade MMO. I know it's not popular amongst the OSR crowd, but I played a lot of V:TM and W:TA back in the early 1990's, and am cautiously optimistic. Then again, if I didn't sign up for the Star Trek MMO, I'm not sure I'd actually get around to playing a Vampire MMO, but we shall see.

Hopefully, more details will be forthcoming over the next year and a half...

I'm nearly positive that was a typo. Everything else white wolf has released on the subject has suggested the new world of darkness (Vampire the Requiem) not old world (vampire the masquerade.)

I'm not sure, since I can't seem to find any "official" announcement. But a lot of the commentary I've seen from folks at the gathering this weekend has expressed disappointment that it will be Masquerade and not Requiem.

Hopefully when they get around to releasing a formal announcement, it will be made clearer.

"Not popular amongst the OSR crowd?"

What do you think we were playing during the lousy days of 2nd edition AD&D? 1990-96, man.
