Massively Multiplayer Online publishing giant, Sony Online Entertainment, has today been sold to the private investment company, Columbus Nova, for an undisclosed sum. The company has since announced that it will be changing its name from SOE to Daybreak Studios, and will now primarily focus on producing video games for multi-platforms, including Nintendo, Xbox and some mobile platforms as well.
A spokesperson for Daybreak Studios has said: "We expect to have even more resources available to us as a result of this acquisition, it also means new exciting developments for our existing IP and games as we can now fully embrace the multi-platform world we are living in."
