Daybreak shifts dev focus from Landmark to EverQuest Next

Daybreak senior producer Terry Michaels has posted a new letter on the Landmark website. He says that the dev team has been shifting its focus and resources to EverQuest Next, though he has no dates to share because what the team plans to do will take “an unknown amount of iteration, tweaking, and sometimes drastic direction changes.”

Michaels also says that Landmark itself “will continue to be essential in the development of EverQuest Next.” Finally, he’s got a new screenshot to share, which you’ll find at the link below

VilleUusitalo perhaps, but that account isn’t owned by and has nothing to do with Daybreak Games. LandmarkGame, OTOH, had a ton of viewers during the Workshop Show.

Walpurgisnacht NanfoodleSmith syberghost toomanywowclones Not offended but its right on H1Z1 page on steam. One of the top games on steam. I dont have to refute anything, their steam page is there for all to see and on steam, 68% positive reviews is huge. By the developers words the game is not even ready for release and people are eating it up. I dont care if its tix tax toe or H1Z1, you say something I know is not true, I will call you on it. I find it funny people love hating on DGC right now but even in the face of that they keep pulling out all the stops and getting the real fans excited. H1Z1 is a busy game. Progression servers for EQ1 are so full they needed to open a second. They did so well that now EQ2 is getting a progression server. Keep calling their doom, its good for their business lol

NanfoodleSmith Walpurgisnacht syberghost toomanywowclones Why are you offended? Do you work for Daybreak or something? syberghost said that H1Z1 has a 68% and I said that is bad for a Steam game. Nothing in your post has refuted that.

melissamcdon syberghost Dynamic water and other item like that are needed for EQN, so they will be updated first in Landmark. Anything needed to make EQN will be added to Landmark. Even things like combat and gear and gear skills will be updated in Landmark as thats the foundation needed to make EQN and test it. Landmark has tones of room to grow but for now its in one direction. Anything to make EQN first.

NanfoodleSmith melissamcdon Without further development to add in the missing pieces what do you think will happen to Landmark?  It’s already a ghost town.

syberghost I can’t read this as anything but them quitting early on Landmark.   Before dynamic water, before AI and dungeon-master capabilities, before SOEmote, before a lot of things they talked about.   Maybe I don’t listen to the things you “point out to me” because you are a jerk about it?

Walpurgisnacht syberghost toomanywowclones Bad for steam game huh? Funny how H1Z1 still is one of their top selling games in its category. If you gonna hate on a game company, pick something that cant be refuted by easy to find facts.
