WoW Killer.. Pfft..
Blizz will be the one to kill WoW, thats one of the reason they are hesitant on releasing there next MMO...
2013 will bring us..
Bland & Soul (free)
Wildstar (probably f2p)
A few more is there, just can't rememberm.. All said and done ESO is the next major one though but looking shaky, here why.. The majority of the mmo market doesn't see it viable to continue paying $15 sub (maybe a cheaper sub-model is needed, like $5 or $10 a month) WoW being victim to this also.... 2) Players are expecting ESO to be close to skyrim or past Elder experiences and have said features like player housing at launch and as such wont give dev time to fully flesh out there idea.. The list can go on..
f2p seems like the way to go.
I think firefall will be released as well.
However I dont mind paying subs depending on the model. I wouldn't sub to star wars because it gives you such an advantage over f2p members that it's just not fun. But I do sub for planetside2 now because the benefits are good without being game breaking, you cant tell in game if someone is a subscriber or not. I just wish that f2p models were implemented better in many games, pay or grind is way more fair than p2win... especially if there isnt gamebreaking stats and a gear progress model in the game.

Firefall is a lot fun but it's not a game that will have you playing day after day for the long term. It's a drop in and out type game. I'm not sure the OP is looking for an FPS even one in an mmo format but it is certainly a game to take a look at.
Bungie is working on a new game, possibly series. hints of it leaked in the past few weeks, and easter eggs / hints are being found in Halo games, specifically Halo ODST. The current name it's going by is Project Destiny.
Around the time ODST came out, they where mass highering new Server Engineers and PS3 game developers, and a whole new wave of 30 artists/storyboarders.
Various rumors going around, most popular being a FPS-MMO with a social-story depth equal to Star Wars.

Copernicus was designed by Todd McFarlane for whom I didn't have much hope left after the abominations called 'Spawn'-games, however Project Copernicus looked very, VERY promising.
I don't expect to ever get a release, seeing Rhode Island wandts their 75 mil back and no one will ever fork out that amount of cash for an unfinished game
Just putting this here: http://www.gameofthronesmmo.com/
Personally, I didn't see a lot of promise just by looking at the trailer vid; which is unfortunate as it will be another beloved franchise with a black mark
...but I have been wrong before on MMO predictions.
Game of Thrones is an IP that a video game can't do it justice in my opinion.
If you played all the time, which meant no rested, I specifically remember it taking forever for your first character. Alt tabbing to check thottbot every 5 minutes since you had no idea where anything was, taking half an hour to form a group for any instance, and getting ganked by people who had already leveled faster than you. I mean just being in STV or anywhere near Tarren Mill/southshore meant you were going to be corpse running for hours trying to do quests.
I can see how people on a PvE server leveled faster, but on Mannoroth shit was always real.

Blade & Soul is looking great if you're into Asian themes. (didn't read through the thread so sorry if it's been mentioned before)
"How poor are they that have not patience"
Do like I did and accept that no game will ever match those, and it's easier to find enjoyment in the plethora of subpar, watered down, unable-to-deliver-on-promises, marketing hype-driven, shameless carbon copy MMOs on the market.
Oh dear it appears I'm a bit jaded though (albeit rightfully so).
also inb4 "trollololol rose tinted glasses bro" - you're an MMO nab and your opinion is irrelevant by default.

I am expecting big thing things form Elderscrolls MMO, I really hope it is epic.
Joana took 4 days to make 1-60 with a hunter. You're probably the most misinformed WoW player I've ever met.During those two periods, getting from level 1 to level 60 or 70, respectively, took months.

Gameplay. But I'm aware that some MMO players care more about lore and "realism" rather than gameplay itself. But as a gamer, I can't see a single argument to worship WoW and say that GW2 isn't worth to play more than a month.Better in what way?
Wildstar- Hoping it will be 2013. Not that many videos out there but what I have seen I do like.
Blade & Soul- Haven't been following this one closely but what I have seen looks good.
Firefall- Great game, but definitely still very much a beta. Very little individual sense of progression at this point.
You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve
