Daybreak Games Company, formerly Sony Online Entertainment, has announced that its MMO spin-off EverQuest Next:Landmark will be going offline next month.
The servers, social media channels, and forums for Landmark will close down permanently at 4:00 PM PT on Tuesday, February 21, 2017.
Current players can still enjoy the game until the plug is pulled, but as of the announcement, Landmark is no longer available to purchase (it's been taken off Steam), and nor are player studio items in the Landmark marketplace.
Those who have purchased Daybreak Cash for the game needn't worry, as it will still be available in their general wallet.
Meanwhile, the potential for the game to endure in someone else's hands - a fan's, for example - appears to have been ruled out.
Daybreak Games has announced the closure of Landmark which was luanched into alpha by SOE back in 2013.
It also shut down any talk of a fan-fuelled resurrection, explaining "Daybreak Game Company will retain all of the code and data from Landmark, [and] will not license or authorize the operation of an emulator or fan-operated server".
"With heavy hearts, we are writing today to inform you that after much review, we have chose to close Landmark game servers", Daybreak Game Company said on the game's official website. We've been toiling away making Landmark into a wonder unto itself.
With a lifespan of only seven months, Landmark didn't have a long life.
