H1Z1 - King of the Kill Has Lost 91% of Its Players Since July

According to Githyp, Daybreak's H1Z1: King of the Kill has lost 91% of its player base since it hit its peak in July 2017. The first precipitous loss of players was revealed in December when even a Steam Free Weekend and a Humble Bundle sale were not enough to revive the falling numbers. Two months later, the numbers continue to tumble.

Prior to the release of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds and Fortnite: Battle Royale, H1Z1:KotK was the only big battle royale game. The increased competition is the likely cause for the drop, though Redditors and Steam players also blame poor developer support as well.

Last October, Daybreak also announced the H1Z1 Pro League for later in 2018. How those plans will be affected due to falling player numbers remains to be seen.
