Sony Online Entertainment which has existed since 1995 is no more.
The former SOE have become a completely independent company, thanks to investment management firm Columbus Nova, which have purchased SOE for an undisclosed sum. With this independence comes the freedom to develop games for multiple platforms, the studio stated: "Yes, that means PlayStation and Xbox, mobile, and more!"
On top of which, the new name of SOE is the Daybreak Game Company; "This name embodies who we are as an organization, and is a nod to the passion and dedication of our employees and players. It is also representative of our vision to approach each new day as an opportunity to move gaming forward."
The company reassured the fans that this would not change a thing in terms of future projects. "It will be business as usual and all SOE games will continue on their current path of development and operation.”
