If like us you have been waiting for the sequel to the massive multiplayer PlanetSide 2, I’ve got some awesome news for you; Daybreak Games has confirmed that PlanetSide 3 is in development and that it will be bigger and far more ambitious than its predecessor.
In a post on the PlanetSide 2 website, producer Andy Sites explained that PlanetSide Arena has been designed as a way for Daybreak to connect PlanetSide 2 and PlanetSide 3, as well as serve as a place for the studio to play around with new features and game ideas.
Andy also said:
“PlanetSide Arena is intended to be the stepping stone to PlanetSide 3, which we envision expanding from the current battlefields of Auraxis, to full-fledged galactic war with empires exploring, colonizing and conquering one another within an expansive galaxy, ”
“We envision PlanetSide Arena as a way to allow us to link present-day PlanetSide 2 and PlanetSide 3 storylines, as well as providing an opportunity to try out new features, styles of play, etc.”
There’s no mention of a release date for PlanetSide 3, unfortunately. But we will keep an ear close to the ground and let you know more updates when they come in!
