Following a brief Tweet from Smedley, here's the scoop on the changes to SOE.

http://www.reddit.com/r/h ... comes_daybreak_game/

QuoteDear Players, Partners and Friends,

Today, we are pleased to announce that we have been acquired by Columbus Nova, an investment management firm well known for its success with its existing portfolio of technology, media and entertainment focused companies. This means that effective immediately SOE will operate as an independent game development studio where we will continue to focus on creating exceptional online games for players around the world, and now as a multi-platform gaming company. Yes, that means PlayStation and Xbox, mobile and more!

As part of this transition, SOE will now become Daybreak Game Company. This name embodies who we are as an organization, and is a nod to the passion and dedication of our employees and players. It is also representative of our vision to approach each new day as an opportunity to move gaming forward.

So what exactly does this mean for you? It will be business as usual and all SOE games will continue on their current path of development and operation. In fact, we expect to have even more resources available to us as a result of this acquisition. It also means new exciting developments for our existing IP and games as we can now fully embrace the multi-platform world we are living in.

Our games and players are the heart and soul of our organization, and we are committed to maintaining our portfolio of online games and pushing the limits of where we can take online gaming together.

Thank you for your continued support. See you in game!

The Team at Daybreak

PS2 on Shitbox, along with H1Z1.

PC will probably be left behind as the money (aka Cashcow) is in consoles and an investment company will expect a massive return too.

Sorry to disappoint you but pc games make more money than console games.
What you said was true untill a couple of years ago, but it's reversed now.

Cfr. http://www.pcr-online.biz ... ames-globally/033849

The new consoles might have generated more money since that article.
But I think that means that pc and console gaming are now more or less equally in generating money.

And more good news for PC gaming:

So don't underestimate pc gaming.
Which probably means SOE is running a couple of years behind ... as usual isn't it ?

I wrote a big old response to this (as per usual), but accidentally pressed 'browser back' on my mouse whilst proofreading and can't be bothered rewriting.

TL;DR  so long as the PS2 servers stay up (and I'm convinced they will for quite some time) then I'm happy

There was so much more to it. I feel somewhat deflated now...
