Daybreak Game Company has announced that their spin-off to the EverQuest series, Landmark, is ending service this February.

In a post on their site, Daybreak said:

With heavy hearts, we are writing today to inform you that after much review, we have decided to close Landmark game servers on February 21, 2017Since Landmark first entered Alpha, we have been impressed by the creative talents in this community. You pushed the boundaries of what Landmark could do, and we are grateful for the time and energy you shared through your creations in this game. […] The game servers, as well as the accompanying forums and social media channels, will be closed at 4:00PM Pacific Time on Tuesday, February 21, 2017. We want to thank each and every one of you for your creative contributions to Landmark. 

If you own Landmark, all Player Studios will no longer be available for listing and purchase, and all marketplace items will be listed at 1 Daybreak Cash until the game finally closes at the end of February.

    So if they’re killing off Landmark does that mean Everquest Next is 100% dead then?

  • tbh it was dead quite a while back when they announced they stopped development for it.

    its too bad really, but i wanted to play the mmo not the minecraft build your own mmo game

    This is funny, I was uninstalling some games on my HDD to free up space and ended up removing this game since I haven’t touched it since 2014. I then decided to visit nichegamer and see this article.

    Sigh… It had such potential.

    mmo’s are a dead genre anyways. It’s quite fitting.

    They already cancelled that game a while ago.

    I remember when they canned the MMO they were planning. It sounded like a dream when it was announced, but with Landmark looking like hot garbage, I lost hope for the MMO. When it was cancelled, I just uninstalled Landmark and lost interest in the company as a whole.

    We got Liru and Gawker went bankrupt. There’s always hope.
