As I've been saying, ever since SOE turned into Daybreak and owned by an investment company, that it'll only lead to the selling of (or more likely) the complete closure of multiple IPs. A great sign is them pretty much just putting Everquest 2 on life support and milking the players in the cash shop. Sad too, because EQ2 is one of my favorite MMOs and offers tons of content for soloing, group or social activities. It (EQ in general that is) also is one of the first major IPs of the MMO genre.
