Nothing gets people jumping on a bandwagon better than someone else having a massive success and with over 6 million players worldwide you don’t get much more successful than Blizzard’s World of Warcraft. Naturally this means that everyone and their brother is working on their own Massively Multiplayer Online game that they’re hoping will take a chunk of WoW’s audience. There are 31 new MMO games in development at the moment not counting expansions to already existing games so the folks over at Joystiq have come up with a pre-E3 roundup of MMOs for those of you who may have grown weary of your current addiction.
Many of the newcomers are based on TV and movie franchises such as Pirates of the Caribbean Online, Stargate Worlds, Star Trek Online, Age of Conan, and The Lord of the Rings Online. See the rest of the list of newcomers over at Joystiq.
