Daybreak Games, the owner of EverQuest, PlanetSide 2, and H1Z1, has announced the acquisition of Singularity 6, the studio behind MMO life-sim Palia.

The details:

  • Daybreak CEO Ji Ham confirmed the acquisition for an undisclosed sum in a new press release. "We are thrilled to welcome Singularity 6 to Daybreak Games. S6 is an excellent addition to our development studios, renowned for their success in creating large-scale online games and content," the CEO wrote. "Their debut title, Palia, is a fantastic addition to our online portfolio. We eagerly anticipate collaborating with the S6 team to make Palia the best online experience possible across all major gaming platforms and to help continue expand their community of players for years to come."

  • Singularity 6 was founded in 2018 and developed the cozy life-sim MMO Palia after receiving close to $50 million in funding. The game went into open beta for the Nintendo Switch and PC last year, with over 100,000 active daily players and generally positive feedback from players and critics.

  • Despite the game’s promising performance, the studio laid off a large portion of its workforce earlier this year due to financial concerns with 49 job cuts in April, followed by another 36 in May. Singularity 6 said that the restructuring would allow it to “stay focused on supporting Palia and serving [its] community long term.”
