H1Z1 PS4 producer on spectacular launch, balancing and what comes next
It’s no secret H1Z1 hasn’t had the easiest of rides. Despite being one of the first games to develop a battle royale mode, H1Z1’s PC version suffered a huge dip in player numbers when competitors such as PUBG and Fortnite emerged. Meanwhile, the H1Z1 community has often complained about the lack of regular updates, and the game’s current review score isn’t looking particularly peachy.
Yet it seems H1Z1’s fortunes on the PlayStation have been radically different to the PC version. A few weeks ago Daybreak announced over 10m people had played the game in its first month of open beta. And according to PlayStation Producer Terrence Yee, the game has continued to be popular with players since its full release earlier this month.
In an interview with Eurogamer, Yee noted the numbers response to the PS4 open beta had been “beyond [their] wildest expectations”. “We didn’t really know what the numbers were going to be,” Yee said, “but that surpassed what any of us could have imagined”.
