Daybreak Game Company has announced that the servers for Landmark, previously known as EverQuest Next Landmark, are to close next month. The game servers will run until Tuesday, 21st February 2017 at 4pm Pacific at which point the game will not be playable.
The voxel-based sandbox game allowed players to create pretty much anything they wanted in a more realistic looking environment than that of Minecraft.
Daybreak Game Company focused development efforts on Landmark after ending development effort on EverQuest Next in March 2016.
The announcement to the community reads
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, 2017.
Since 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.
While there is still time to enjoy Lumeria and the many worlds you’ve built within Landmark, we wanted to let you know what you will be seeing happen between now and February. Beginning today, Player Studio items will no longer be available for listing or for purchase in the Landmark Marketplace. Landmark will also no longer be available for purchase. All items in the Marketplace with a Daybreak Cash price will have their price reduced to 1 DBC.
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.
Players who have purchased Daybreak Cash will be able to use their balance in other Daybreak games.
Daybreak continues to run services and maintain EverQuest and EverQuest 2.
