Daybreak Game Company (H1Z1) has just announced the discontinuation of Landmark‘s game servers on its blog. Landmark is a voxel style MMO offshoot of EverquestNext with Minecraftesque world building elements. It was originally scheduled for release in Spring 2016.
The decision to axe Landmark follows last year’s cancellation of EverQuest Next, the third title in the EverQuest series which was in development for several years and hit alpha stages in 2014. Daybreak Games expressed gratitude to the Landmark community for the time, energy, and talent that was invested into the game in their statement:
“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. “
