Is Neverwinter a MMO?

I was looking up info for Daggerdale and found this post on their forum by an Atari community person.  I always assumed Neverwinter was going to be a more standard Diablo-ish game but I guess being developed by Cryptic I should have known MMO.

Daggerdale will be a cooperative Action RPG. So, it will be a little more similar to games like Dragon Age, or Diablo, then it will to Dungeons and Dragons Online (An MMORPG).

If you're looking for a new MMO to play in the D&D universe, make sure to check out Neverwinter Online, currently being developed by Cryptic Studios, and due out later this year. More info on that title will be coming soon.

@datarez: It's hard to say at this stage but from I can it sounds a little similar to Demon's Souls with it's persistent online world. I'm no expert though so take it with a grain of salt.

It's most likely like Diablo where it supports online co-op, but don't really know for sure.
Side note:
I have allways wanted a true epic DnD online where the questlines are based of the hundreds and hundreds of forgotten realms books.

In an IGN article, it was recently announced that Neverwinter will be an MMO instead of a co-op RPG. They compared it to Vindictus and Rusty Hearts, so it might be more of a lobby/mission system then a traditional open world.
