we want to set the record straight

With the “edited by Roxxlyy” stamp of approval, Daybreak Game Company made this odd announcement.

Daybreak Ownership

In short, Daybreak Game Company claims they are not owned by Columbus Nova.

Multiple publications, such as Games Industry and Massively Overpowered, have speculated that the announcement has to do with the U.S. Department of the Treasury freezing Russian assets.

Whatever Daybreak’s reasons are to “set the record straight,” perhaps they can get Roxxlyy to edit this gem from the publication Forbes.

Or this ‘shiney’ from Venture Beat.

Presuming she’s not hit by the current round of Daybreak layoffs.

Addendum 2018.04.26

The current Daybreak Games Privacy page makes this statement.

Privacy 2018

“Daybreak Games may share your Personal Information for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy (except for direct marketing) with its affiliates, including any entity that directly or indirectly owns fifty percent (50%) or more of the outstanding equity in Daybreak.”

That current section differs from past Privacy pages. Such as this ‘sparkly’ from September 03 2017. Courtesy of the Internet Archive WayBackMachine.

Columbus Nova 201709

Emphasis ours.

“Daybreak Games may share your Personal Information for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy (except for direct marketing) with its parent companies, which consist of Columbus Nova Private Equity Group (“CN”) and any company controlled by CN that directly or indirectly owns fifty percent (50%) or more of the outstanding equity in Daybreak.”

Depending on your level of lawyer-ese, the sentence states Columbus Nova “directly or indirectly owns fifty percent” of Daybreak.

Interesting.

EverQuest II – Tell Us What You Think! The Sequel

EverQuest II – Tell Us What You Think!
 The Sequel

“Intrepid Studios is growing according to today’s Ashes of Creation press announcement. Five new members have joined up that bring development experience from EverQuest to H1Z1.”
New Team Members Bring a Wealth of Experience

 

Daybreak Game Company has emailed a second 2017 EverQuest II survey. We presented the first 2017 survey in an earlier article.

As two months earlier, here’s what showed up in the Gmail box.

EQII email

 

The new survey is as short as the previous one. However the emphasis is different.

EQII Survey 20170605

What was previously question #7, is now question #2. For those who prefer text, the new question #2.

  • 2. How likely is it that you would recommend EverQuest II to a friend of colleague?

 

I would like to say that EverQuest 2 has a chance to pull itself out of the toxic hole that its managed to throw itself down, but right now the game needs to focus on bringing the player base back.
Rissa Trent, March 2017

 

Asking the same question. in two months apart surveys, indicates Something’s Afoot. Or Daybreak’s Marketing department is completely inept.

Let’s sidetrack to marketing EverQuest II. And let’s not go into the “””fantastic marketing“”” taking place on Twitter.

You think marketing, and you think ‘advertising.’ Maybe something like simple timely press releases.

But do a Google search for “everquest 2” under news. By the way, it’s now June.

EQII news

 

EverQuest II and Ashes of Creation? Someone at Daybreak blew product SEO.

But, Maybe this is a Google fluke.

 

WoW news

Nope.

 

“Hopefully, if the liquidation firm shuts us down, Amazon Games will pick us up.”
Uwkete-of-Crushbone, May 2017

 

Daybreak Games may be asking the ‘would you recommend to a friend’ question, to determine if EverQuest II is worth keeping around.

But Daybreak Games may be asking the question, because customer impressions are important. Change a bad impression, and you can keep a customer. And gain new customers.

Time will tell.
