Daybreak Game Company’s open world zombie survival title H1Z1 has sold an impressive 1 million copies on Steam
Daybreak Game Company, formerly Sony Online Entertainment, have been through the wars these past few months ever since H1Z1 launched into Early Access on Steam this January. First many were unhappy with the game’s microtransactions, others were annoyed by bugs and downtime, then Sony sold off the developers who rebranded themselves as an independent studio, Daybreak Game Company. Now it seems they finally have good news as the game has sold over 1 million copies on Steam.
Company president John Smedley announced the news on Twitter earlier today saying “We have sold over 1M copies of H1Z1 on Steam!”, he also revealed that more than 5,000 users have been banned for cheating, and local servers are now live for Australian players of the game. “We’ve just opened the Australian H1Z1 servers! have fun!” he wrote.
The game is also set to launch on PlayStation 4 this year, though with the current state of the game this release window may be a little optimistic. Also, it was revealed that now H1Z1 has no direct ties to Sony, it could also land on Xbox One.
