You know, for some reason we didn’t have a whole lot of discussion about the Sony Online Entertainment buyout and name change when it first happened. We posted about it, but we never had a chance to ask our readers about it or have a round of staff opinions. That reason probably had something to do with our own huge and sudden changes that sort of forced their way to the forefront, so we’re hoping you can forgive us for that lapse in discussion. The world is a crazy, crazy place sometimes.
But the fact remains that Daybreak Game Company is a thing now, and that’s a big change for everyone who plays anything from EverQuest to H1Z1. Not to mention that yesterday saw a big news drop with several big names getting laid off by the studio unexpectedly. So whether you’re an ardent fan of the old SOE or just someone looking forward to EverQuest Next, we ask you: What do you think about Daybreak Game Company? Do you feel hopeful? Concerned? Do you just not care for the name? What do you think the future holds for the studio and its roster of MMOs?
