Earlier today it was announced that Sony Online Entertainment has been acquired by Columbus Nova, a technology investment firm, notable for having acquired Harmonix, developer of the popular Rock Band series of games.
As a result of this acquisition, Sony Online Entertainment is now an independent game studio. As such they have chosen to rebrand themselves as the Daybreak Game Company, a name that reflects the vision of the company.
Perhaps the most notable thing about the acquisition is that Daybreak Game Company has already commented on the possibility that their titles might now come to the Xbox platform.
2) Yes, we want to bring our games to Xbox One in addition to PS4.
