The Coming Spy MMO Glut

If you've been holding your breath since 2000 for the sci-fi MMORPG "Citizen Zero," you can stop waiting!

It's been canceled.

Instead, Australian developer Micro Forté is working on an espionage-themed MMO.

Sony Online Entertainment announced their spy MMO, codenamed "Vista," last year SOE runs the "EverQuest" franchise, "Vanguard" and "Star Wars Galaxies" -- making their success rate 1 for 3.

A James Bond MMO is certainly an interesting idea. But just as "City of Heroes" quite literally features a city with thousands of superheroes walking around, isn't there something silly about a city with thousands of spies hanging out in it?

Then again, maybe not. Set it in Cold War Berlin.
