EverQuest Next developers
EverQuest Next is being developed by Sony Online Entertainment in collaboration with the Storybricks team at Namaste Entertainment.
Sony Online Entertainment[edit | edit source]
In 1998, Sony Online Entertainment was formed by merging parts of Sony Online Ventures with Sony Pictures Entertainment, though Sony Interactive Studios America began work on the original EverQuest in 1996. By the time EverQuest was released in March 1999, SISA had been through a few name changes and was now called Verant Interactive. Verant finally became part of SOE in 2000. EverQuest Online Adventures was released in 2003 for the Playstation 2, and Everquest II was released in 2004.
Namaste Entertainment[edit | edit source]
Namaste Entertainment is the creator of the Storybricks development studio. Everquest Next is this studio's first project.
