Well to be perfectly honest it is not going to be an X game. EGOSOFT has stated this officially. And in my opinion I am sure that due to the overwhelming disapproval of the EGOSOFT player community TNBT is NOT going to be MMO. It may have some elements of Multiplayer in the form of coop play with a limited number of friends, but not direct MMO.

All Egosoft have stated is that X3TC completes the storyline started with X-BTF. That doesn't mean their next game is not going to be a space game, or that it won't be set in the X universe. (I have no idea what the next game is going to be personally, incidentally, this is just my normal forum user's opinion).

I thought EGOSOFT stated that TNBT is going to be a space game, and that X3TC was the final game in the X story. It could be set in the same universe (would be awesome), perhaps sometime into the future.

I'm a long-time EVE Online player. I am currently not playing EVE because, well, I have a six-month old child and need to be able to pause the game at random (and often highly inopportune times).

I am greatly enjoying X3TC because it offers me the gameplay I want, at the times that are convenient to me, and I can interrupt my gameplay whenever I feel like it.

If X4 was an MMO, I wouldn't play it. If I wanted to play an MMO space game, I'd go back to EVE.

People, Egosoft will NEVER make an X-style MMO. Look at the problems Eve Online is having right now. I would much prefer they concentrate on giving us the excellent after-sales support that they are giving us right now rather than be bogged down trying to fix problems in an MMO.

If you want to play an X-style game online, play Eve Online. Just be prepared to put up with douchebags who find their fun by ruining yours.

Let's play "I can sum up opinions, also I am wearing no pants, more on this after the new hour"...

1): MMOs = Lots of money, and a better game, more friends.
2) MMOs = Bad for X, user will commit suicide if created.
3) Buy cheap pillz online.
4) What is the subject again?
5) X is ending, this is impossible.
6) It will not be an X game, but rather something else, possibly in the X universe.
7) Eve online, which is not at all like X, is better than an X MMO.
8) I am so intelligent, since I collect opinions and act better than other people ;P

To elaborate on #6, what I mean is that it won't be called X4 or whatever since EGOSOFT said "X3TC is the conclusion of the X storyline (fact)," so to me that says it won't be an "X" game but "could" still be in the same universe.

But if that is the case what would they name it? X would be a recognizable name to some people but then the ones that would recognize it would also be on these forums and would know either way if TNBT is named something else entirely... paradox? Ewwwww cool name idea.

That's what I sought. ;)

Egosoft did not even say that the X Universe is terminated.

Anyway, to answer those that say "if it's multiplayer, I won't play it"... May I assume that they mean "MMO", not "Multiplayer" ? A multiplayer like NeverWinter (or Freelancer) is no harm to single players: a single player game with a possibility to play multiplayer on a standalone, home run, server. I doubt Egosoft would make it, but it would not hurt you.

And for the OP: TNBT is NOT a muliplayer X2, it's a new, advanced space game about which nothing is known.

Yeah, cause if they had a seperate multiplayer mode i'd play it, imagine a 60 vs 60 M5 battle, lol.

a optional multiplayer i believe is the best way to go with a game like X. throw in some exclusives, to make it more desirable and you are golden. To make a game like eve or STO or any other space MMO and you are delving into a different style of game. From what i have seen, the style i what we are all here for.

Either way i am looking forward to what egosoft is going to do next, it all really depends on what they are looking for and their goal is.

If multilayer was added, it should only be small scale coop with fiends. That's all I would like.

Any large scale mmo just wouldn't work as for all the reason listed for the last 5+ years. Plus it would destroy the moding community something I wouldn't like :P

There's plenty more that needs fixing, improving and adding to the engine. Annoying limits and bugs that you discover when you have ripped the game apart many a times.

And honestly that is ONE of the many things (Top 3 things in my opinion) that make X games pure gold. The modding community. There are few games, which such and alive and dedicated modding community to keep the game fresh and EGOSOFT had a stroke of brilliance when they decided to allow and support such heavy modding and beta testing of X.

MMOs certainly lack that and since I have grown up and moved on from MMOs I have really developed a large respect for, and desire to play games with a modding community. At this point EGOSOFT would be shooting themselves in the foot if they made an MMO.

What if it's not a space game at all? Maybe they want to go with a single player super hero RPG or something?
