Daybreak Games (formerly Sony Online Entertainment) announced that they will pass and leave the promised work in the sandbox Landmark, to change the priority expected EverQuest Next, which is based on the engine of Landmark.
In fact, the technology developed in Landmark will become the livelihood of the content of EverQuest, which makes a change of state, more than any other game. The team will look to use all content created by users to transform it into the new world of EverQuest.
“Since the team has completed several pieces related to cleaning and resulting bugs, we have shifted our focus and resources to work on higher priority tasks and systems that will be used in EverQuest Next,” commented producer Terry Michaels. “As we do this, we are working in areas with high amounts of creative risk. This means that even though we know what we do, we know that means an unknown number of changes, adjusting and sometimes taking drastic changes in direction, to work in the game and work on what we can. Because of this, we simply can not commit to dates, because until we get more, even our best estimates are educated (but quite crazy) assumptions. “
Landmark will continue to receive updates, but not as frequently as before, and even though they are working on EverQuest Next, the study says do not expect anything this year.
