Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

[Landmark] is shutting down on Feburary 21st.

    So what IPs would that leave Daybreak owning? Surely they must have some kind of revenue stream to remain solvent right?

    Pretty sure it is just EQ and EQ2 at this point

    They have EQ, EQ2, PS2, H1Z1, and DCUO as I recall.

    Ostensibly those make money.

    They also recently signed a deal with Standing Stone Games, a new indie developer made of ex-Turbine devs, and a deal to keep D&D Online and LOTR Online going without WB involved.

    So D&DO and LotRO will probably get shut down in a few months then, if Daybreak's record is anything to go by

    I assumed Landmark was not long for this world when Next died

    Yeah I was super-hyped for what EQ Next was supposed to be, but when it just died and all that was left was Landmark, I pretty much wrote it off entirely.

    Presumably, so did almost everyone else.

    Or they stay open as long as theres enough profit to keep the lights on. With very little added in the way of content.....

    DDO Is/was a pretty good time. It probably still has a (small) dedicated player base as there is nothing else out there quite like it.

    That it was, though IMO it was at its best when you were with a group of friends who had all never done the dungeon you were heading in to before. Game fucking shined during that.

    Gosh, did it ever. DDO's dungeon fuckery was amazing.

    I will never forget going exploring away from the group while they were debating a puzzle and returning screaming about all the friends I'd made.
