In a bizarre unforeseen twist, Sony Online Entertainment has been sold. Sony Online Entertainment have been bought out by investment management company Columbus Nova, and as of right now will be renamed "Daybreak Game Company".
SOE—that is, Daybreak—said it will be "business as usual," and that all existing SOE games will continue to operate normally. They expect to have even more resources available to us as a result of this acquisition
The price of the acquisition by Columbus Nova, which in no way sounds like an affordable hatchback, has not been revealed. We've reached out to the former SOE for further detail on what this means for their current and future games.
