Could Daybreak Game Company be about to split into two — or more — studios? Recent trademark filings on behalf of Daybreak suggest that the MMO company might be moving toward this direction.
As first noticed by MSandersonD, on June 12th, Daybreak filed for trademarks for “Darkpaw Games” and “Rogue Planet Games.” Both of these trademarks refer to “computer game software and video game software; downloadable multiplayer, real time computer and video game software that is downloadable via an online service for entertainment purposes,” which certainly are in line with what Daybreak currently offers.
What’s interesting here is the names of these two entities themselves. Darkpaw Games seems to point to Fippy Darkpaw, a famous EverQuest NPC, while Rogue Planet may be leaning toward the PlanetSide series. So what do you think? Are we about to see Daybreak fracture into smaller, more agile studios, a la Turbine/Standing Stone Games? Let us know in the comments!
