I don't see it happening but if assuming Intrepid were to acquire the Everquest IP, I think that could be quite the boon to Ashes of Creation.

they already have a few dev's from daybreak, and with the layoff's that daybreak had today, i don't see why they wouldn't obtain some more :smile:

Yeah, that's part of why I don't see it happening, Intrepid already has the meat, while obtaining the Everquest IP would be like getting a dessert itself.

I don't think Intrepid has the capital to purchase any portion of Daybreak let alone the whole thing, considering AOC is partially crowdfunded. Any veteran staff let go from say EQ or EQ2 would be a good addition for Ashes. EQ is coming up on the 20th anniversary next year, you know those devs know how to make a lasting game.

I can see Intrepid adding more staff, unsure about an ip purchase, think it s unlikely,
