With the $500,000 H1Z1 2017 Invitational happening this October 20-22, Daybreak Game Company LLC must be optimistic over their H1Z1 IP. This October Invitational comes just six months after their $300,000 H1Z1 Fight For The Crown tournament.

Perhaps this large cash outlay is a Daybreak manager prematurely expressing the sentiment, “Nothing Can Stop Us Now!

Unnoticed by Daybreak, a game called PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, made it’s March 2017 debut on Steam Early Access.

 

Amazon’s a very competitive company, and I think they are a very good competitor … we are still looking for signs of momentum, and so far, they have not gotten traction.

I think it’s awesome that we can grow together, and we can continue to really define what battle royale means to players and give gamers an awesome experience

Well, at this point what else could possibly go wrong?

The game’s peak [concurrent user count] is still really healthy and we’re still in the top four on Steam … There’s some seasonality to what happens with our games
