In November 2019, the fantasy MMO developer legend Brad McQuaid died, who was responsible for Everquest, Vanguard and Pantheon, among others. The developers of Daybreak have dedicated a memorial to the veteran of online role-playing game makers.

In November 2019, the MMO community mourned the death of developer legend Brad McQuaid. McQuaid, who died at the age of 51, was one of the key figures when it came to the design of Everquest (buy now for € 24.90) went, one of the grandfathers of the online role-playing genre. McQuaid and colleagues later laid the foundation stone for the Sigil Games studio and thus for one of the most famous MMO defeats in history: Vanguard – Saga of Heroes. Most recently, McQuaid worked with the Visionary Realms team on the online role-playing game Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen.

The developers of Daybreak, who still run the Everquest and Everquest 2 game servers, have now put McQuaid in the Norrath game world, like the authors of Massively overpowered report, referring to the official Everquest forums and Everquest fans of The Ancient Gaming Noob Respectively.
