Daybreak says its studio split-up will have ‘no impact’ on Standing Stone, LOTRO, or DDO

Following the big (but not unexpected) announcement that Daybreak is fracturing into a trio of studios underneath a publishing arm, one of the questions that has arisen is what might happen to the two MMORPGs that the company publishes for Standing Stone Games.

Fans of Lord of the Rings Online and Dungeons and Dragons Online can pour a big glass of calm-down juice at this announcement, apparently. According to both SSG and Daybreak, both titles are unaffected by the company restructuring.

DCUO’s new studio, Dimensional Ink, addressed this issue in its FAQ: “Standing Stone Games will remain the same and continue to develop and operate Dungeons & Dragons Online and The Lord of the Rings Online. Daybreak will continue to provide publishing support for the games. There will be no impact on LOTRO or DDO service. ”

“We’ve been seeing the news as well,” said SSG Community Manager Jerry Snook on the LOTRO forums. “This announcement is expected to have no impact on us, how we work, or what we do.”

Yeah cuz they're going to come out and say "We're screwed."  They won't announce the game is over until a week before they shut it down.

There have been predictions of the demise of LOTRO for nearly a decade since it went F2P. I think Amenhir is spot on, when the end is near, it will be a week or two notice. The fact they are still producing content/expansions suggests there is profit, unless their accountants are complete idiots.

We will continue to fuck this game up and wring every last penny from the whales and addicts
