Instead of getting a chance to see TMO through its infancy, however, the property, which was being copublished with Sega, has been sold EverQuest developer and publisher Sony Online Entertainment for an undisclosed sum, less than three months after its delayed launch in March.

Now thats pretty messed up, were its sales that low?

The deal announced today includes the right for SOE to produce at least one superheroes game based on the Warner-owned DC Comics character library as well.

Oh joy, Lets allow SOE to screw up a DC MMORPG! Joy!

I know its opening week or so it sold 46,000 copies, that was the last figures i heard. From what i hear their numbers are growing but growing rather slowly. Doing what they did with sony was justa wise move, due to the all access pass, it would give them an enormous audiance who could test/play their game. And also give them a massive dev team that can push out changes faster then monolith ever could. I would ahve rather seen them put the mmo section of monolith on another project personally rather then canning them like they did.
