Turbine Inc. is out and Standing Stone is in. The Lord of the Rings Online and Dungeons & Dragons Online have both passed from Turbine’s care to a newly created studio consisting of MMO veterans called Standing Stone Games. Rob Ciccolini, executive producer on both games, announced that the new studio will partner with Daybreak Games for publishing. Ciccolini assures current players that plans for both games remain unchanged and that there will be no interruption in service.
Daybreak Games is the publisher of PlanetSide 2, H1Z1, EverQuest 2, and DC Universe Online as well as other titles.
