only when they are relying heavily on mtiplayer. there is a high chance it will fail. companies like to bet on onlineplay because of avoiding pirate copies and zhe neverending milking ability via transactions and stuff. but fact is only a very small portion of these games get played the way devs like it. everybody i see in my buddy list is playing onlinegames exactly as long as single player content..minus one or two exceptions. after a week max its the next best game that gets played. and i really dont know if the devs and publishers of mmorpgs online fps are aware of this. they all want to be wow or halo or whatnot and none of them can reproduce this success. totally crazy mindsets.
