What new MMORPG's are releasing soon? (Also, Question about LOTR:Online)

So a number of friends and I used to play EQ together and then a bit of WoW before and during the begining of undergrad but eventually we all kind of fell out of gaming together. With a number of them finishing undergrad pretty much this week we are discussing hopping into a new game together. Ideally we would like to get into something as it releases, which brings me to my question.

What games, if any, are you guys familiar with that are scheduled to release in the next couple of months? Are you in Beta for any of these games? Any strong suggestions of something worth waiting for?

Also, I played LOTR:Online back at release and powergamed through it super fast and there was no end game content to keep me involved at the time so I sold my account and moved on. Looking at it now, the game seems to have matured nicely and no one else in the group I am considering playing with ever played LORTO, does anyone know if a strong end game been developed? What kind of raiding is there, dungeons, long term character development similar to EQ's AA system, if any?

I'm not sure of any new MMOs coming out in the next couple months. However, FFXIV is getting me a little excited, and it's in beta stage. It should be coming out sometime in 2010.

I didn't think any MMORPG was coming out this year. I'd be pleasantly surprised if any do.

I'm looking forward to FFXIV and Star Wars.

Yea, we are talking about FFXIV and SW:TOR but those are a bit out.

Looks like it might be LOTR:O for a bit to kill some time.

I've heard LOTRO has gotten better, with more content. I enjoyed the game to be honest.

No one has anything like EQ's AA system.

Just play EQ again

APB is out in a few months.

The mmo's I'm looking forward to (though not out in a couple of months, just some to keep an eye on):

Mabinogi heroes (nothing like the current cheap Mabinogi).

Forget APB. Developers couldn't keep, or didn't want to keep their promised "no subscription" payment system. Turns out it's just a cheaper, albeit more confusing, monthly subscription. They stated over a year, in multiple public interviews and podcasts, that there would be no monthly fee. I really dislike when developers lie to their playerbase, even if their publisher (EA) squeezed them to make the decision. If they had said $10/month from the get go, it would probably would have been a good deal.

Kind of tired of developers/publishers trying to find the next WoW. The model has clearly failed when copied, I doubt someone is going to magically achieve it with mediocre release content.

In April 2k8, a couple of us played the hell out of Mabinogi. Nexon turned out to be difficult and frustrating. Just can't seem to get back into it. Mabinogi Heroes will probably suffer from the same issues.
