Developer- and Publisher-specific Articles: DC Universe Online
Sony has sold its MMO-focused division Sony Online Entertainment to New York-based investment management firm Columbus Nova. According to the new owners, “SOE will now operate as an independent game development studio and will continue to focus on creating quality online games, providing excellent service to its extensive player base, while centering on its untapped potential as a multi-platform online gaming company.” As part of the transition from Sony, the studio has been renamed to Daybreak Game Company.
Sony Online has announced that they will be bringing two of their biggest MMOs to the PS4, DC Universe Online and PlanetSide 2. As with the other versions, both will be free-to-play with optional in-game purchases. For those keeping count, that brings the total number of free-to-play MMOs on the PS4 up to three: DCUO, Dust 514, and PlanetSide 2.
Sony Online Entertainment has announced that their annual fan festival, SOE Fan Faire, has been renamed SOE Live and that it will be taking place this October. The SOE-sponsored event will be held between October 18-21 at Bally’s in Las Vegas, and feature the company’s large roster of MMO titles: DC Universe Online, EverQuest, EverQuest II, Free Realms, Magic: The Gathering – Tactics, PlanetSide 2, Star Wars: Clone Wars Adventures, and Vanguard: Saga of Heroes. Attendees can look forward to developer discussion panels, game-themed events, access to beta programs, tournaments, and goodies to take home.
