Daybreak Game Company announced on January 6th, 2017 that they will be shutting down Landmark’s servers, forums and social media accounts on February 21st, 2017. On the same day as the announcement, Landmark was removed from sale on Steam and the official site. Current players were able to log in and play until the 21st of February and all marketplace prices had been reduced to 1 Daybreak Cash.
No explanation was given but based on the game’s prolonged development, pivot away from the EverQuest name and low player counts it seems to have been a financial decision.
“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,” reads the statement on the Landmark homepage. “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.”
In a brief FAQ entry Daybreak ruled out the possibility of the game living on in any fan-supported capacity.
