Help me!
« on: March 17, 2008, 06:14:02 PM »

Need a little help, do you think that a game like Guild Wars, or World of Warcraft could take the HL2 Engine?

Or what engine would you use?

It is possible to do MMORPGs in the source engine, although it isnt ideal for that type of game.

This link lists some engines suitable for MMOs, although i have no experience with any of them so cant suggest one

Just a heads up, building an MMORPG is very hard, infact it's more of a challenge than a normal 3D game.

You'll need to know what you're doing as far as programming goes.
