From CBS Sports comes an interview with Curt Schilling, the CEO of 38 Studios, the studio behind this game.  He reveals that it was his unhappiness with Everquest 2 was what drove him to make 38 Studios:

Schilling got serious about it several years later. He recalled feeling disappointed by "EverQuest II," the sequel released in late 2004 to the popular multiplayer online game. Irked by certain elements, he'd wonder: "What were they thinking?"While playing online with several developers from Sony, which produced the game, Schilling would muse about hatching his own startup. "You do that, I'll definitely join your company," they'd tell him.They didn't quite believe him when he later actually offered them jobs. In October 2006, the business launched with 11 employees. Today, 38 Studios -- as in his uniform number -- has nearly 400.

Curt Schilling, the CEO for this game, was on the Late Night with Jimmy Fallon show. When asked, if there'll be a sequel for the game, he answered, according to Gamespot:

Fallon remarked, "I bet there's gonna be a sequel," to which Schilling responded, "Oh yeah." Schilling went on to say, "[38 Studios] was built to be something that stays around and becomes huge.
