Its 5 relatively big games and I assume a decent amount of physical assets
Some actual numbers on how EQ and other DBG properties in terms of subs/income ect.
Console LOTRO and DCUO’s huge playerbase: Everything we just learned about Daybreak thanks to EG7 | Massively Overpowered
Guess the guys here who thought LTRO had 10x the numebrs of EQ were wrong.
According to this EQ1 is DBG's second most successful game financially and has the most paid subs by a a rather massive amount.
Uh, doesn't a single krono cost more than a single month subscription? At some point that krono was bought for $17.The money relating to those subs isn't a good indication of much financially because it doesn't have the in-game store income or sales of the next expansion coming up, etc. A lot of the membership of accounts is via krono, not just the direct credit card charge method. There is a whole breakdown of the sale floating around, but I am not going to publish it here for various reasons. It details Daybreak's EBITA, how the purchase is financed, etc. They certainly paid an unusual price according to their 300m tag and Daybreak's EBITA. The EQ newsletter today mentions their recent hires and projects they can't talk about yet. Will be interesting if they really do have plans for new things and not just the milk until its dead approach. It seems strange to suggest they are going to flip it eBay style when they paid a premium already.
