Developer Daybreak Games, makers of H1Z1 and EverQuest 2, may be in trouble. The US government have begun freezing the assets of Russian oligarchs accused of “destabilising activities”, including interference with the 2016 US election. One of those companies, Columbus Nova, was reportedly Daybreak’s parent company.

In a statement to MassivelyOP, Daybreak Games say that they are not, in fact, owned by Columbus Nova:
“Daybreak Game Company has no affiliation with Columbus Nova. Jason Epstein, former member of Columbus Nova, is and has always been the primary owner and executive chairman of Daybreak Game Company (formerly Sony Online Entertainment) which he acquired from Sony in February 2015.”
