Codemasters Online Gaming has confirmed rumours that they are considering publishing two massively multiplayer titles for home console systems. Within the next twelve months, they plan to compete directly with Sony Online Entertainment and NCSoft, and perhaps claw some market share back from the likes of The Agency and Jumpgate: Evolution.

"The time is right for some good console MMO games. There's two titles that we're really interested in for taking to console right now and that's something I'd like to see happen in the next year or so, but it's got to be the right game," said David Solari, vice president and general manager of Codemasters Online Gaming.

"It's a little more challenging because of the restrictions of a console – certain games aren't going to work. Final Fantasy was very successful on 360 so I just think you need the right game, and I think there's a really good opportunity there because there's not enough companies there right now," he added.
