After the cancellation of EverQuest Next last year, another project in the franchise is no more.
Daybreak Games (formerly Sony Online Entertainment) announced this week that EverQuest Landmark‘s servers will close on February 21, 2017. In a blog post, the studio said it is “grateful for the time and energy you shared through your creations in this game.”
Landmark itself is no longer available to buy. People who already own the game can keep playing, but in-game Player Studio items have been removed from sale. All other items are marked down to the price of 1 Daybreak Cash. You don’t necessarily need to spend all your Daybreak Cash right away, as the funds can be used in “most” other Daybreak games for PC.
In a FAQ, Daybreak explained that it’s keeping the Landmark code and data. Fans hoping the game could live on with another company or via a fan-run server are out of luck; that won’t happen, Daybreak said. Players who have further questions about Landmark’s shutdown can follow these instructions to file a customer support ticket.
EverQuest Landmark was a companion of sorts to EverQuest Next, allowing players to build things and bring them into that game in some cases. It looked pretty cool.
