Based on some recently discovered trademarks, it looks like Daybreak Games may be spinning off some new companies — similar to the setup Hi-Rez has. The filings, which were pointed out to MMORPG.com by an anonymous tipster, are for a Darkpaw Games and a Rogue Planet Games.
The trademark descriptions for both filings are identical, stating that they’re for “Computer game software and video game software; downloadable multiplayer, real-time computer and video game software that is downloadable via an online service for entertainment purposes.” The description goes on to note that they provide “on-line facilities for real-time interaction” with other gamers and notes various types of production and design.
In both cases, it looks like the filings are pretty recent — within the last month. Neither seem to be approved as of yet. So, it may be a while before we find out what Daybreak is up to. But, if you’re interested, you can keep track of the trademarks here.
