Up to last week, Z1 Battle Royale was being actively developed by NantG. After a round of layoffs from the Z1 team, Daybreak retook creative control of the game. Earlier this week, the team posted a brief note of reassurance to the Z1 Battle Royale community to let them know that servers will remain up, the name will not be changing and that they are hoping for "minimal disruption to the game's service".
As many of you saw last Friday, NantG officially announced their decision to transition Z1 Battle Royale back to Daybreak. Like you, we were reacting to that decision in real-time, and are still digesting what that means for the game going forward. That means we don’t have all the answers yet, but we can offer our immediate plans for now until we are ready to share more.
Z1BR is a game that so many of us here at Daybreak have worked on and supported in myriad ways over the years, and we want to do right by our community. As we work through this transition, we only ask for your continued patience as we prepare our plans for the game’s future.
