Daybreak registers a domain name for its possible splinter studio Rogue Planet Games

While all we’ve got is registrations and assumptions, it certainly looks like Daybreak Games is moving forward with some form of business plans. Our good friend MSandersonD has caught wind of a new domain name registration for rogueplanetgaming.com, which is likely associated with the June registration of a Rogue Planet Games trademark.

This move is the latest in a series of developments that all seem to lead to Daybreak assigning the games under its umbrella to individual development houses. As mentioned, June saw both Rogue Planet Games and Darkpaw Games get registered, both of which are likely the studios handling development of PlanetSide and EverQuest respectively. The company also registered a Bronze Age Studios trademark last year and a Golden Age Studios trademark in July of this year, both of which are likely connected to DC Universe Online. Of course, this is all supposition at this point, as no press announcement confirming these moves has been made yet.

Negative conspiracy theory: Daybreak is functionally looking to become a holding company that operates the various game-specific studios to limit its liability or something like that.

I have no evidence to support this conspiracy theory, but damn if I can’t figure out any other reason for these moves off the top of my head.

i’d be more inclined its the start of a sale plan, this way they can sell each game seperately without too much fuss. I’m hoping if thats the case they find good homes thatll take care of each respective game and community. Wishlist for me is EQ going to blizzard or square (however unlikely).

DConline i dont know who could handle it, lord knows i dont want warner getting their grubby hands on it after the failure of the dcu. Heck I’d almost wish Marvel got it and revamped it to marvel toons *grins evilly*

Come on Daybreak, just get to the press release. You think this Friday at 3pm, right before a US 3 day weekend is likely? It sounds like their kind of move.

Buried between WoW Classic and the start of PAX? YEP.

It could be a consequence, but shutting down the Briggs server in Planetside 2 on the very day of WoW Classics’s launch with it only being announced a couple days prior with no warning felt like Daybreak’s deliberate attempt to bury it haha.

Daybreak Game Company everyone!
