Sony Online Entertainment's PS3 and PC MMO, The Agency, is still very much in development and is planned for release in the second half of 2011, SOE president John Smedley has said.

The game was handed a significant delay, but the extra time was needed, Smedley told Kotaku.

"There was a moment in time in our company where we looked at our own stuff with a clear eye and saw we have to do better," he said.

"DC Universe was held for a year-and-a-half from when we wanted to launch it and now I'm very happy with it."

DC Universe Online had been expected to launch this year, but was assigned an early early 2011 release date back in October.

VideoGamer.com Analysis

2011 looks like being a landmark year for the MMO on PS3, with DC Universe Online, The Agency and Square Enix's Final Fantasy XIV all scheduled for release.

Console MMOs are always a hot topic, but thus far they have been hard to come by and unsuccessful. Perhaps 2011 is the year this all changes.

I wonder if the success of MAG has them worried.

It wasn't planned to be F2P when i signed up for the beta like....years ago or something. It did look awesome though, like a James Bond/Batman MMO :D

I'm still not sure on console MMOs though, I don't think console gamers are interested enough in them for there to be enough people in the game to play it. i suppose FFXI and Monster Hunter are the major exceptions, but if it's also coming out on PC then I'd wager most people interested would get it on a PC. Though a console does have the advantage of having the game specifically built for it, so you don't have to worry if your systems can handle it.

Is this gonna' be free to play or what? I was quite interested in it at one point, but then I was also quite interested in APB at one point as well. I'm glad they've delayed it if it needs work, but I can't say my hopes are that high if I'm honest.
