With EverQuest Next having been canned, Daybreak Game Company is about to lead its world sculpting spin-off, Landmark, to the gallows. The game, which only officially launched last June, will go offline on February 21st. Daybreak hasn’t gone into details though this kind of “sun-setting” of games often stems from declining server populations and profitability.
As someone who (foolishly) splurged around twenty quid for a founder’s pack, it’s a shame to see it go. It had ambitious concepts that would eventually feed into the ill-fated EverQuest Next. Daybreak has already put its foot down, stating that it will not authorise Landmark emulators or fan-made servers.
