While H1Z1 is poised to hit the PlayStation 4 very soon, not everything is going well with the studio behind the game, Daybreak Games. In a statement sent out to media, Daybreak Games has confirmed that the studio has been hit with layoffs.
“Daybreak confirms we are realigning our workforce to better position our company for the future. Because of this, we have had to make an extremely difficult decision to part ways with some of our employees across various disciplines at the studio. We are doing everything we can to take care of each affected individual by providing them appropriate transition assistance.”
The studio however states that they are “focused on publishing and developing large-scale online games and will continue to service our existing and long-standing games and franchises.”
Just last month, Daybreak Games announced that H1Z1 will be going free-to-play on PC, which was no doubt spurred by heavy competition against the likes of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds and Fortnite.
We wish everyone that got affected the best of luck and hope they land on their feet soon.
