Zipper Interactive, developer of previous SOCOM games, is developing the upcoming 256 online player game, MAG. For anyone who was worried about SCEA’s hardware marketing boss, John Koller’s comment yesterday about MAG being an “an iteration of SOCOM” can rest assured. Cindy Bowens, a community manager at SCEA had this to say about Koller’s comment :

“I just wanted to give you a heads up in response to the quote about MAG being an “iteration of SOCOM.”

I wanted to clarify that this is a misstatement. MAG is a brand new IP and is unrelated to SOCOM.

It is not a sequel nor built upon SOCOM. It will be a brand new experience.”
