PSA: Account Changes Coming for European ‘PlanetSide’ and ‘EverQuest’ Players

If you play Sony Online Entertainment games is Europe then you deal with a partner company called ProSiebenSat1. Games (PSG). The company handles accounts for a number of SOE titles including PlanetSide 2, DC Universe Online and EverQuest 2, and many others. Soon users of those games will have to transfer their accounts to Sony Online Entertainment.

In a joint statement published on the PlanetSide 2 website, PSG and SOE informed players that they will be given a chance to migrate their accounts on or around July 1. All earned status, characters and in-game coin will transfer with the account, according to SOE. PSG will cease all hosting and support for SOE games as of July 1, so if you don't transfer to SOE then you won't be able to play any of their games.

SOE says that it is giving European users a 90 day window to make the transfer beginning on July 1 and ending on Sept. 28. Region locking was also lifted today by SOE, so new players who want to register for any of SOE's games should do so its various game-related websites. One thing that will not be transferred over when players sign up with SOE is payment details and personal information; you'll need an existing SOE Station Account or you will need to create a new SOE account to keep playing the games.
