Default More layoffs at Daybreak Games

Daybreak Games lays off multiple employees in company 'realignment.'

Posters on Reddit appeared to indicate the layoffs hit the Planetside 2 and Planetside Arena teams in particular. Daybreak has been plagued by numerous layoffs and financial woes in the last year, having previously laid off 70 employees in December of 2018 and another batch of employees in August 2018. Source

Yeah, this is actually not good news for us. We need Daybreak to be healthy so they honor their agreements. Still, PS has been on a long long downward slope in terms of player numbers. I was just looking it up a week ago or so and it seemed that it was reaching critical levels, like if you lose any more there's not enough people to fight at the scale that game is supposed to represent.

I think there's not enough bashing of the company that lets you play here for free. Spoiled man children gonna child.

Rogean and Nilbog could probably crowd source enough to purchase EverQuest when Daybreak finally dies.

I heard green99 is just a cash grab to get an rmt infusion and make an offer on official EQ.

The annoying part is that the parts of Daybreak everyone here cares about are worth very, very little. If someone bought them to safeguard P99, they'd mostly be paying for a lot of other crap.

If DBG ever needs to liquidate assets or goes bankrupt, I fully expect Amazon Games/Smedley to buy the rights.
