    "So what exactly does this mean for you? It will be business as usual and all SOE games will continue on their current path of development and operation," the developer said in a post on Reddit. "In fact, we expect to have even more resources available to us as a result of this acquisition. It also means new exciting developments for our existing IP and games as we can now fully embrace the multi-platform world we are living in." February 2, 2015 

    Lies.

    Because a statement a year old is really relevant at this time.... 

    I am sure you have not had to go back on anything you said a year ago. =P

    Going by how the real world operates, i am pretty sure that at that time the above statement was the truth. 

    Especially as outright lying tend to go bad... 

    But i am also pretty sure that one day when they came in to the office Columbus Nova simply posted a note saying. No more cash... Can you put the game out now? They had to say no and just like that the game was dead. 

    Columbus Nova cares nothing for Everquest per se... They only care about turning a profit on the IP. To them it is just another data entry in a long list of assets.

    Well today's news was very disappointing. I look forward to reading the autopsy reports of disgruntled SOE/DBG insiders in the coming months.

    Two days after Columbus Nova made that statement they fired over half of the company.  There is no way that statement was the truth when they made it, not even a slim chance.

    This developer makes a lot of claims, but sadly their actions (or inactions) and events more often than not wildly contradict the claims.
